Fast bowlers from the West Indies have always had a bit of bravado about themselves. Therefore, it was absolutely no surprise when 18-year-old Keemo Paul ran out England wicketkeeper Ryan Davies. The U-19 Cricket World Cup saw its first bit of West Indian bravado with young Keemo Paul.
On their way to a total of 282-7, wicketkeeper-batsman Ryan Davies lost his wicket in the most unusual of fashions. With the score at 266-5 towards the close of the innings, the need for death bowling became an increasing necessity.
Bowling slightly below 130 kmph, the young Keemo Paul bowled what seemed to be a perfect yorker to Ryan Davies. The latter successfully dug out the yorker and guided it straight back to Paul. Noticing that Davies was well out of his crease, Paul flung the ball straight towards the stumps rather instinctively. Attempting to get out of the way in order to not obstruct the field, Davies attempted to duck.
Although he got away from the trajectory of the ball, the ball went on to hit the stumps with the unfortunate Ryan Davies miles outside the crease. The impressive Keemo Paul replicated his aggression with the bat as his wonderfully compiled half century.
The stare and the walk-away from Keemo Paul have also seen him receive many an accolade from the bowlers of yesteryear. However, whether he will become one of the great West Indian bowlers in the years to come remains to be seen.
