Rakheem Cornwall will quickly catch anyone's eyes due to his physical appearance. The Windies off-spinner has already caught the attention not only for physical appearance but also for his performance on the field.
The Caribbean could be a cause of concern for Bangladesh in the Chattogram Test starting on February 3.
Cornwall is one of the main weapons in the Windies spin attack. He took 5 wickets for 47 runs in the first innings against the BCB XI. After such a bowling show, there was no way the Tigers wouldn't research about him.
Bangladesh batsmen have prepared well to play him. 'We have prepared for him. I hope we can play him well," said skipper Mominul Haque before the match.
That shows the Tigers are wary of the off-spinner and looking to find a way to play him properly. The pitch will also help him during the Test series.
Cornwall knows how to get extra bounce on any wicket as he has good height. Windies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite seemed impressed with his performance and ready to back him whatever the situation is.
"Rakheem did a very good job in the practice game. He created a lot of pressure by bowling dot balls. I think he will do well in this series. He is a quality offspinner. We have to support him in the field," said Brathwaite.
There have been so many questions and eyebrows raised about Cornwall's fitness due to his physical appearance. But he never listened to them. When he made his first-class debut in 2014, the right-handed spinner weighed about 180 kg. He surprised everyone with his great performance on the field, he has managed to put everything aside.
