Born October 15 1984, Ravi Rampaul is a tall medium pacer out of Trinidad. He played 18 Tests for the Windies, where his 49 wickets at 34.79 represents a solid return, but Rampaul reached his pinnacle in the white ball forms, where he played 92 ODIs and 24 T20Is.
He was an essential part of the Windies’ 2012 World T20 victory. Rampaul played in seven matches across the competition, picking up nine wickets and maintaining an excellent economy of 7.93rpo. His semi-final performance against Australia was one of the defining in the competition, with Rampaul taking 3-16 with a phenomenal economy rate of 5.33rpo, seeing his side through to the final.
Rampaul has also made some dents on the history books with his batting. In an ODI against India in 2011, he made 86* (66) from No.10, the highest score by anyone batting in that position in an ODI.
