The Jamaica-based cricketer pulled up his socks early in his career to represent the Caribbean nation. He made into the national team in 2014 on the back of scintillating performance in the domestic circuit. Jermaine Blackwood is known for his potential to add fine balance to the middle-order unit. In 33 matches, he has smothered 1789 runs at an average of 32.53 coupled with 2 brilliant centuries.

Looking at his 2020 career, he has piled up an immense number of runs in his kitty. In the first Test against New Zealand, he raised up his hands right when the team demanded from him the most. The 29-year-old notched 104 runs with Alzarri Joseph, on the other end playing the role of second fiddle, scoring 80 runs. However, West Indies lost the match by an innings but Blackwood proved his mettle against the lethal Kiwi bowling lineup.

Hence, the right-hander bags the 9th spot in this list of star-studded batsmen. His fans and West Indies would cherish to continue the great form in the upcoming years as well.
