Rakheem Cornwall

The worlds heaviest cricketer, who has made his test debut in the second test of the India West Indies series. He is 26 years old and weighs 140 kg and is 6 foot 5. He has played 55 first-class games taking 260 wickets. 17 5 wicket hauls and 2 10 wicket hauls. He has scored 2224 runs at an average of 25. On his test debut, he bowled 246 balls (41 overs) and took 3 wickets. For a bowler battling obesity bowling all those overs in that heat is a really good effort. Batting he scored 14 at number 9 scoring 15. Bowling again in the second innings he scored 23 overs no wickets conceding 68 runs. A good effort holding up an end while India attacked for a declaration.

However, in 50 over cricket, where he has been capped for West India A, he bats a lot more. Scoring 1240 runs at an average of 33 with a high score of 132 not out. He has 56 wickets with an economy of 3.67. Very good economy rate.

In t20 cricket he has played 31 games taking 21 wickets an economy of 7.78. His batting is explosive and big-hitting. He hasn’t performed however only showing glimpses. His 78 of 48 last year was brilliant. However, he has only scored 340 runs at an average of 16.

He at 26 could have a 10-year International career if he carries on. He obviously has fitness issues but he can ply through it and try to lose the weight. However, he is an incredible talent and an inspiration for all people battling obesity.
