Article from yesterday’s cricket play. Jerome created quite a stir when he was plucked from the Shell Cricket Academy to play for the West Indies as a teenager. After a brilliant start to his career, he ‘broke down’ and had a recurring back injury for years.
I recall when I first saw him bowl, it reminded me of Michael Holding. He was very tidy and on target with his balls. Pity about the back as he had great promise.
But now he’s back and West Indies fans are happy. We wish him well.
