Johnson Charles is a muscular wicket keeper-opening batsman from West Indies. Charles is only the second cricketer from St. Lucia to represent West Indies (the first being Darren Sammy). He has so far represented the Windies in 48 ODIs and 34 T20Is, scoring 1283 and 724 runs respectively.
Charles was also a member of the West Indies squad which won the T20 World Cup twice in 2012 and 2016 respectively. Due to the heavy competition for slots in the West Indies limited-overs set-up, he has played most of his career as a backup opener.
The wicketkeeper-batsman was called up for national selection in the T20 series against England in 2011. It led to his selection in the 2012 T20 World Cup team, where he scored a match-winning 82 against England. Consistent performance in the subsequent Caribbean T20 tournament led to his selection in the ODI setup in 2012.
