Jerome Taylor on his day, was one of the deadliest fast bowlers you can ever come across. Injuries knocked his doors on a regular basis during his career, which eventually prevented him from having an even more illustrious career.

Yet, before retiring, Taylor ended up with great numbers after his name. In 46 Tests for West Indies, he picked up 130 wickets and in 85 ODIs, he picked up 126 wickets. Taylor was the first ever West Indian cricketer to pick up a hat-trick in ODI cricket. He achieved that feat against Australia.
