Dhaka, Bangladesh – West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach spoke to the local and international media on Wednesday at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium and the question on everyone lips was how could a small man bowl so fast.
Roach, who stands just five-feet-eight-inches and weighs less than 180 lbs is not what many term “the ideal fast bowler”. He ambles up to the wicket, but has the ability to generate pace with a quick arm-action. He generates pace of over 150 mph.
