Jermaine Blackwood Profile
Hailing from Jamaica, Jermaine Blackwood is an explosive batsman who shot to prominence after scoring heavily in the 2013-14 domestic season. He was handed an opportunity against the touring Bangladesh A team in which he scored a valiant century. That knock didn't go unnoticed and as soon as there was a vacancy in the national team, Blackwood was included in the squad.
Blackwood impressed in his first Test outing with a solid knock and his first century came against England in 2015. In that particular Test series, Jermaine played two critical knocks in Bridgetown and was instrumental in helping West Indies level the series. His career although didn't kick off the way he would have liked, mainly due to inconsistency. In 2019, during India's tour of West Indies, Blackwood became the second concussion substitute when he replaced Darren Bravo, who copped a blow on his helmet trying to duck a bouncer.
