Biography

Soon after making his debut at the domestic level in List A in October 2009, he got included in the West Indian squad for the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand in 2010. In the tournament, he picked up five wickets in three games. A point worth noting is that Jomel got picked for U-19 after playing just one List A game.

In 2011, he played a season for Sefton Park in the Liverpool and District Cricket Competition, where he took 51 wickets and made 373 runs. Then, in 2012, he made his first-class debut for Barbados.

Jomel had a phenomenal domestic season in 2014-15, in which he picked 49 wickets (including 8 wickets in an innings on two occasions) at an average of 14.97. Such performance earned him a place in the national side.

He was named in West Indies’ Test team for the tour of Sri Lanka in October 2015. Jomel had a dream start to his international career, picking six wickets in his first match.

Records and Facts

  • Jomel initially wanted to be a fast bowler.
  • In the 2014-15 season, he picked 49 wickets (including 8 wickets in an innings on two occasions) at an average of just 14.97.
  • In his first Test match against Sri Lanka, he took 6 wickets.
  • In 2019, he (and Jason Holder) won the Promising Young Cricketers award in Barbados.

Jomel is 28 now and still has a big part of his career ahead of him. However, Jomel’s lack of bowling experience in international cricket is likely to hinder his prospects. However,  if selected, he could prove a very long-term prospect and a handy spinner who can bat as well.
