Keemo Paul did not have a proper pitch to practice on, he did not even have a proper track to run and keep himself fit, but he had the passion to turn his dream into a reality. Such has been the story of Keemo Paul, a guy hailing from the small town of Saxacalli in Guyana.

Age 24
Wife Not Known
Jersey Number 17
Height 6 ft 1 in

One of the most promising young faces of West Indies cricket. True talent always finds a way to its destiny and Keemo Paul, in every sense of the word, exemplifies it. Of course, his family and friends supported him in every stage, but it was his talent that helped him transform into a 20-year-old pacer who might well become an icon for the country. That is a long shot though, but for now he is all set to play in world’s biggest league. Keemo Paul will look to dazzle the world yet again with his all-round skills as he eyes an IPL Debut with Delhi Capitals in IPL 2019.
