Brandon King Bio

Brandon Alexander King is a talented cricket player hailing from the West Indies. Known for his dynamic power-hitting abilities, King has made a name for himself in both domestic and international cricket.

Born on September 11, 1994, in Jamaica, King began his cricketing journey in his home country. His skills as a middle-order batter caught the attention of selectors, leading to his selection to represent Jamaica in first-class cricket in the 2014-15 season. However, it was during the 2018-19 season that King truly shone, amassing an impressive 630 runs in just seven games.

His remarkable performances at the domestic level earned King a spot in the West Indies A side. He also made his debut in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) in 2017, playing for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Although he initially flew under the radar, his move to the Guyana Amazon Warriors in 2019 proved to be a pivotal moment in his career.

Under the guidance of coach Johan Botha, King’s potential was recognized, and he was promoted to the top order. This decision proved fruitful, as King blasted 496 runs in 12 games in the CPL that year. His impressive strike rate of 149, including an unbeaten 132 against Barbados Tridents, solidified his position as one of the tournament’s most explosive batsmen. At the time, his unbeaten 132 was also the highest individual score in the history of the CPL.

With his exceptional performances in domestic cricket, it was only a matter of time before King earned a call-up to the national team. He made his international debut in limited-overs cricket against Afghanistan and continued to showcase his skillset against India, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand. Although his performances were steady, he was dropped from the national side in late 2020.

However, King’s determination and talent could not be denied for long. He earned a recall to the West Indies squad a year later. In the T20I series against Pakistan and England, King showed his ability to adapt and excel in the white-ball format, scoring half-centuries in both series. In the ODI series against the Netherlands, he notched an unbeaten 58 and a magnificent 91, playing a crucial role in his team’s victory.

As of his most recent statistics, King has made significant contributions to the West Indies’ cricketing repertoire. With a burgeoning career ahead of him, King’s power-hitting prowess and ability to perform under pressure make him a force to be reckoned with in the world of cricket. The cricketing world waits in anticipation to witness his further growth and success on the global stage.
