Kemar Andre Jamal Roach (born 30 June 1988 in Saint Lucy, Barbados) is a Bajan cricketer. He played in the 2006 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka and has represented the West Indies in Test and One Day International cricket. Roach made his Test debut in 2009 against Bangladesh when the West Indies team was weakened due to a player strike, and impressed with his bowling so that he was given an opportunity to play when the team returned to its full strength. A 5-foot-8-inch (1.73 m) fast bowler, Roach is capable of express speeds and has reached 150 kilometres per hour (93 mph) on a number of occasions, and was the 7th fastest active bowler as of 3 January 2015. In 2012 he became the first West Indies bowler to take 10 wickets in a Test since 2005.
