West Indies Corey Dalanelo Collymore

Plays for West Indies
Age 39 years 311 days
Born December 21, 1977, Boscobelle, St Peter, Barbados
Batting Style Right-hand bat
Bowling Style Right-arm fast-medium
Barely fast-medium, averaging in the mid-to-high 70s, Corey Collymore is a fairly accurate and aggressive, with the benefit of years of experience. His sprint to the crease is reminiscent of Malcolm Marshall's, but, unlike Marshall, his open-chested deliveries seem to limit his ability to move the ball away from the right-hander. His misfortune has been the plague of modern fast bowlers: stress fractures. Yet he is a determined man, who recovered from back injuries when critics had written him off at the end of West Indies' tour of England in 2000, and thus fulfilled his promise to be back in the game. He took four wickets on his return to the one-day side in Zimbabwe in 2001, as West Indies beat India in the final of the Coca-Cola Cup, and after a moderately successful World Cup in 2003, he was recalled to the Test team for the home series against Sri Lanka. He responded with five wickets in the drawn first Test, and a second-innings haul of 7 for 57 in the second, as West Indies sealed a seven-wicket victory.
