Rahkeem Cornwall Career
In July 2016, he was selected for the West Indies Cricket Board President’s XI to face the touring Indian Team; he top-scored in his team’s first innings with 41, before taking 5 wickets in India’s innings. For the same team in 2017, he faced the touring England team; he scored an important 59 runs in a partnership of 123, helping his team recover from 55-5 to 233. He then took 1 wicket in an economical bowling spell in the narrow loss. He once again played for the Cricket Board President’s XI against Pakistan in a warm-up game during their 2017 tour. In October 2016, he was selected for the West Indies A tour of Sri Lanka, taking part in all 3 matches unofficial Test matches; while disappointing with the bat, he went on to take a series-high 23 wickets at an average of below 20. In a Regional Four Day Competition game versus Guyana in April 2017, he captained the Leeward Islands in the absence of Kieran Powell, who had been recalled to the West Indies Test side. He finished the competition as the joint third-highest wicket-taker, with the most for his team.
In 2017, he was selected by the St Lucia Stars in the CPL Draft for the upcoming season. In a disappointing season for the team, Cornwall was one of the more promising members of the squad; he finished the tournament with the second-best batting average in the side, as well being one of its more economical bowlers. His best performance came in a loss to the Barbados Tridents; having been promoted up the order to open, Cornwall reached his 50 off 26 balls (his first in T20 cricket), giving the Stars hope of chasing their target of 196. However, he retired hurt on 78 after being hit in the stomach by a bouncer from Kieron Pollard with 47 runs needed from 3 overs. This decision was not well-received by Pollard, and St Lucia went on to lose the match.
He was the leading wicket-taker for the Leeward Islands in the 2018–19 Regional Super50 tournament, with fourteen dismissals in eight matches. He was then the top wicket-taker in the 2018-19 Regional Four Day competition, taking 54 wickets, despite only playing 9 matches; these performances helped his team to 3rd place in the table. However, a controversial declaration by Cornwall, who was stand-in captain for the last game of the season, in an attempt to stop their opponents, Barbados, from finishing 2nd, backfired spectacularly.
In August 2019, he was named in the West Indies’ Test squad for their series against India. He made his Test debut for the West Indies, against India, on 30 August 2019. At 140 kg (308 lbs), he is the heaviest man to play Test cricket.
In October 2019, he was named in the Leeward Islands’ squad for the 2019–20 Regional Super50 tournament. The following month, in the one-off Test match against Afghanistan, Cornwall took his first five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
