Shane Omari Dowrich (born 30 October 1991) is a West Indian first-class cricketer.[1] In May 2015 he was named in the 14-man Test squad to face Australia.[2] He made an impressive start on his Test debut against Australia at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica.[3] After conceded a lead of 170 in the first innings, West Indies were struggled at 3/37. He and Marlon Samuels added 144 runs for the fourth wicket before a collapse led West Indies to 216 all out and handed victory to Australia.

In the two-year span in first-class cricket from 2015 to 2017), he averaged 50.18 against his overall figure of 37.46. He struck three centuries and seven fifties in that period, including a career-best unbeaten 131. He has been the Test wicket-keeper for the West Indies since 2016.

Early career

A Combermere School student who came through the YMPC Cricket Club,[4] Dowrich represented the West Indies at the 2010 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup,[5] making his first-class debut for Barbados at the age of 18 on his return,[6] and was awarded the Lord Gavron Award for promising young cricketers in Barbados alongside Roston Chase at the end of the year.[7] As part of this award, Dowrich spent the 2012 English season playing for Sefton Park[8] in the Liverpool and District Cricket Competition, scoring two centuries as he totaled 733 league runs at an average of 52.35 [9] despite returning to the Caribbean mid-season to play for West Indies A.
