Jermaine Blackwood Biography


Jermaine Blackwood is a West Indies cricketer, born on 20th November 1991 in Jamaica. He bats right-handed in the middle order and occasionally bowls right-arm off-break.


Background


Without playing any first-class match, Blackwood got selected in West Indies U-19 side and made his List A debut against Barbados in Zone B of President’s Cup in October 2009.


He took the flight to New Zealand for the 2010 ICC U-19 World Cup, where he could account only one good performance against Bangladesh, when he smashed 48 runs off 28 deliveries.


The Jamaican made a slant first-class debut against Guyana in the Regional Four Day Competition in March 2012 scoring 24 runs in two innings. His 94 and 188 in the final against the Windward Islands ensured Blackwood finished the 2013-14 Regional Four-Day Competition as the leading run-getter with 611 runs at 40.73.


He smashed two consecutive tons for Sagicor High Performance Centre against Bangladesh A.


Debut


Blackwood scored a riveting 63 in his debut test debut against New Zealand in June 2014 at Port of Spain. However, he was dropped from the final test to play an extra bowler.


He could not carry test reputation in the 50-over format, scoring 9 runs in his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in November 2015 in Colombo.


Rise to Glory


Blackwood stood alone around West Indies batting debacle, smashing an unbeaten knock of 112 in the first test against England in April 2015 at Antigua.


In the final test, he put up a staunch resistance, scoring 85 runs in the first innings and shepherded West Indies to a series-levelling victory with unbeaten 47 in the second innings. In three tests, the promising star amassed 311 runs at 77.75.


He played a brisk 41 off 45 deliveries in the second innings to register their first test win in England in 17 years in August 2017 at Leeds.


Low Points


Blackwood failed to yield success on the lively and bouncy decks in South Africa and Australia, averaging just 17.8 in five matches. However, it is too early in his career to trumpet his weakness against fast bowling.


Blackwood played only two ODI’s in the 2014 Sri Lanka tour, scoring 11 runs before getting axed from the team.
