Tarryck Gabriel (23) is a brilliant prospect playing for Windward Islands in West Indian domestic cricket. The St Lucian batting all-rounder made his first-class debut in December 2016 and has since played 10 matches scoring 387 runs at 21.50.

However, these numbers do not reflect his undoubted talent which saw him represent the West Indies Under-19s in 5 ODI’s in October 2013 alongside the likes of Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen, Shimron Heymyer, Alzarri Joseph and Jofra Archer.

He earned his Windies Under-19 selection courtesy of his run spree at the Under-19 Limited Overs Tournament in August 2012. Gabriel finished as the tournaments fifth leading run-scorer (averaging 50), behind Shai Hope, Hetmyer, Mohan and Pooran. After a second Under-19 tournament the following year, a double century (204) for St Lucia in the Windward Islands Goodwill Tournament in 2015 culminated with Windward Volcanoes inclusion for the 2016/17 Regional Four Day Competition.

In his opening 4 matches, Gabriel struggled, hitting just 67 runs at 11.16. The following season (2017/18) he faired marginally better, hitting 168 runs at 21. However, this summer (2018/19) he has clearly adjusted to professional cricket, hitting successive half-centuries against Guyana (57) and Trinidad and Tobago (58) to average 38 in his two first-class outings to date (December 2018).

Now he has established himself at the top of the Windward Islands top order, which features the likes of International stars Devon Smith, Andre Fletcher, Johnson Charles, Shane Shillingford, Narsingh Deonarine and Kirk Edwards, he is looking to impress for the rest of the season, before seeking a UK return in 2019.

He has previously enjoyed three stints in the Birmingham League for Halesowen (2014-15) and Stourbridge (2016) hitting 1,988 runs at 38.23 with 6 centuries alongside 65 wickets at 22.94 with his off-spin. Gabriel is a player that comes highly recommend as a player for the future who, after a few seasons away from UK league cricket, is a batting all-rounder with the potential to dominate in 2019.
