Chief selector Robert Haynes is counting on Cornwell

Robert Haynes, the head of CWI's interim selection panel backed the cricketer. "Rahkeem has been performing consistently over a long period of time and has proven to be a match-winner, so we believe his elevation to the Test squad is merited at this time."

Words We believe he can provide an attacking option: Haynes

Cornwall will be aiming to make his presence felt in the WI Test side.

"We believe he can provide an attacking option to our bowling attack with his sharp turn and extra bounce. He can also lend a bit of depth to the batting, so we are looking forward to him coming into the squad and making a valuable contribution," said Haynes.

The promising cricketer stands at a towering height of 6'6" and weighs around 140 kg.
