Famous cricket players of West Indian cricket team: Ravi Rampaul

  • Ravi Rampaul is a right-arm-fast-medium bowler of West Indian cricket team. He is one of those West Indian seamers who try to induce a mistake with a nagging line and not threat the batsmen with bounce and pace.
  • Ravi Rampaul made his ODI debut on November 22, 2003 against Zimbabwe. He has played 90 one day internationals in which he took 115 wickets with an average of 29.22 and economy rate of 5.08. The best ODI bowling figures of Ravi Rampual are 5/51.
  • Ravi Rampual made his test cricket debut on November 26, 2009 against Australian cricket team. Rampaul has played 18 test cricket matches in which he took 49 wickets. Rampaul has not been a very consistent player due to his injuries but he surely has immense potential to do the job for his team.
  • Ravi Rampaul has taken 38 wickets in the first innings at an average of 28.50. However he took 13 wickets at an average of 50.84 in the second innings.
  • In 2011 Cricket World Cup, Ravi Rampaul took 5 wickets against Indian cricket team.

Overall, Ravi Rampal is a good addition for West Indian cricket team that has been seeing the downfall over a decade now. The team as a whole is struggling in both batting and bowling. However having Rampaul on bowling side, West Indian team could be quite lethal. As 2015 ICC World Cup is just around the corner, West Indian cricket team is facing management and financial crisis currently in 2014. With such external factors, the team performance and practice will definitely suffer. The West Indian cricket team hasn’t really won any significant title in the longest time. This cricket world cup could be an opportunity for the team to show its talent and claim the top rankings. The revival of West Indies team is highly dependent on the finances and management seriousness in resolving prevailing issues. In a series against India, West Indies had to cut short its tour because of shortage of finances.
