Test Career

Denesh Ramdin has scored 2898 runs in 74 Tests at an average of 25.87 with 4 tons and 15 half-centuries, including his top score of 166. He has also taken 205 catches and effected 12 stumpings. He played his first Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo in July 2005 in which the tourists batted first. Batting at number 7, Ramdin scored 56 off 73 balls and shared a partnership of 79 for the 7th wicket with Shivnarine Chanderpaul to help push the West Indies to a score of 285. Replying, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 227, giving the West Indies a handy first-innings lead of 58. The visitors collapsed to be bowled out for 113 in their second innings, paving the way for Sri Lanka to complete a 6-wicket victory. Ramdin made his highest Test score against England in Bridgetown in the 4th Test of a series on England’s tour of the West Indies in February 2009. Batting first, England scored 600/6 declared. The hosts responded strongly. Batting at number 7, Ramdin made 166 runs in a stay of 424 minutes at the crease. He shared partnerships of 261 for the 6th wicket with Ramnaresh Sarwan, 77 for the 7th with Jerome Taylor and 48 for the ninth with DBL Powell to help propel the West Indies to a score of 749/9 declared. The match petered out into a tame draw after England made 279/2 in their second outing on a wicket that did not offer any assistance to bowlers.

ODI Career

Denesh Ramdin has played 139 matches and scored 2200 runs at 25.00 with 2 tons and 8 fifties, including his top score of 169. He played his first match against India in Dambulla in July 2005. In the 1st ODI of a series on the Zimbabwe tour of the West Indies at St John’s on  29 April 2006, the visitors batted first and scored 151/9. Batting at number 4, Ramdin scored 37 off 59 balls and shared a 3rd-wicket stand of 33 with Chris Gayle and a 5th-wicket stand of 44 with Brian Lara to help the West Indies chase down the target in 38.2 overs. Ramdin registered his highest ODI score in the 3rd ODI of a series on the Bangladesh tour of the West Indies in Basseterre on 25 August 2014, in which the hosts batted first. Batting at number 4, Ramdin scored 169 from 121 balls and shared a 3rd-wicket stand of 258 with Darren Bravo to propel the West Indies to a score of 338/7. Replying, Bangladesh were restricted to 247/8, rendering the West Indies the winners by 91 runs. However, Ramdin did not have the same fortune with his other ODI ton. In the 3rd match of a series on the England tour of the West Indies held in North Sound on 5 March 2014, the visitors batted first and scored 303/6. Batting at number 6, Ramdin scored 128 off 109 balls with 12 fours and 5 sixes. However, he received less than adequate support from the rest of the batsmen and the West Indies were bowled out for 278 in 47.4 overs, agonisingly short of what would have been a sensational win. Denesh last appeared in an ODI against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi on 5 October 2016.

T20I Career

Denesh Ramdin has played 71 matches and scored 636 runs at 18.70 with one fifty, including his top score of 55. He played his first match against India in Dambulla in July 2005. In the 2nd match of a series in Colombo on 11 November 2015 on the West Indies tour of Sri Lanka, the visitors batted first. Batting at number 6, Ramdin made 34 in 22 balls with 1 four and 2 sixes. He shared a 5th-wicket stand of 41 with Dwayne Bravo to help propel the West Indies to 162/6 before they bowled out Sri Lanka for 139. In the only match at Lord’s on 31 May 2018 on the ICC World XI tour of England, the visitors batted first. Batting at number 5, Ramdin made 44 off 25 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes. He shared a 4th-wicket stand of 52 with Marlon Samuels to push the West Indies to 199/4. Replying, the ICC World XI were bowled out for 127 in 16.4 overs. In the 1st match of a series held in Lucknow, India, on 14 November 2019 on Afghanistan’s tour of India, the West Indies batted first. Batting at number 4, Ramdin scored 20 off 19 balls to help the West Indies to post a score of 164/5. Replying, Afghanistan were restricted to 134/9 in their allotted overs. Unfortunately for Ramdin and the West Indies side, his highest T20I score did not translate into victory for the West Indies. In the 2nd match of a series on the West Indies tour of New Zealand held in Wellington on 15 January 2014, the visitors batted first. Batting at number 6, Ramdin scored 55 in 31 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes and shared a 5th-wicket stand of 70 with Andre Fletcher to help push the West Indies to a score of 159/5. Replying, the Kiwis chased down the target with 4 wickets and an over to spare. Denesh last appeared in an ODI against India in Hyderabad on 6 December 2019.
