Kyle is one of two Hope brothers that is currently knocking on the door of the senior West Indies team. It's not that he hasn't played for the West Indies. Many may forget, the older brother has played five Test matches and seven One Day Internationals. However, in his middle-order role, he hasn't found much success at the international level.
But season after season, at the regional level, Kyle has demonstrated the ability to be a truly high caliber West Indian player. Having started off with the Combined Campuses and Colleges, he moved on to the Barbados Under-19 team, then the senior Barbados team, eventually making the West Indies High Performance team and taking his career all the way to the top.
For the most part in regional cricket, Kyle struggled playing for his native Barbados. After averaging 19.90 in 12 first-class matches spread over his first four seasons, he was dropped from the Barbados team. But when he moved to Trinidad and Tobago, he found much more fortune in red than in blue. He scored four half-centuries in his first season for the Red Force in the 2016-17 season, moving to the top of the order and finishing second on the First Class run charts, with 649 at 49.92 including a maiden century against the Windward Islands.
As he enters his 30s, Kyle will be hoping to once again join in his little brother on the senior West Indies team.
