Jayden Seales is a young right-arm quick bowler who has made a name for himself after some brilliant performances in the test format for West Indies.
Seales made his first-class debut on 11 December 2020 against New Zealand A in New Zealand. The youngster did not have a debut to remember as he managed to pick just one wicket in both the innings combined.
He made his List-A debut for Trinidad & Tobago against the Leeward Islands on 17 February 2020 in the Super 50 Cup. Seales again did not have a great debut as he went wicketless but his team won the game comfortably by 9 wickets.
The Caribbean pacer has so far picked up 14 wickets from his 4 first-class fixtures and 4 wickets from his 3 List A games. In his very short domestic Career, Seals had already impressed the national selectors and was drafted into the national team.
After his consistent performance in the domestic and U19 circuit, Seales was named as a development player by the West Indies Cricket Board in June 2021 for the first test against Sri Lanka.
He was later named in the 17 men squad for the Test series against South Africa. It was a dream come true for the youngster to represent his country at such a young age.
Jayden Seales finally made his test debut on June 10th, 2021 against touring South Africa. The youngster looked very impressive with the ball and picked up 3 wickets. Unfortunately, West Indies lost that game by an innings and 63 runs.
He burst into the scene in August 2021, when he became the youngest player in the West Indies history to pick up a five-wicket haul in the longest format.
He ended with figures of 5/55 in the second innings and played a huge role in the team’s victory. Seales has so far played only 3 test games as of August 2021 and has picked up 13 wickets and is surely a player to watch out for in the near future.
The Caribbean pacer is yet to represent West Indies in T20 and ODI format but the way he is performing in the tests and domestic circuit, he is not far away from wearing the Caribbean jersey.
Jayden Seales CPL Career
After his impressive stint in U19 and domestic cricket, Seales was part of the Trinbago Knight Riders for the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL). He made his T20 and CPL debut on August 18, 2020, against Guyana Amazon Warriors. Seales was a bit expensive and ended his 2 over spell with 1/24. He has so far played 6 games in the tournament and has 8 wickets to his name.
It will be very interesting to watch him in action in the 2021 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) as he would be a better and improved player after playing few international games.
An IPL contract is also not far away for the speedster if he continues to perform the way he is doing now.
- He is the youngest player from West Indies to pick up a five wicket haul in Test Cricket.
