The Carribean allrounder Rakheem Rashawn Shane Cornwall is all set to become the heaviest cricketer of all times in International cricket. The lad has been picked up by West Indian Cricket Board and will make his Test debut against India on 22nd August in Antigua. He weighs 140 kgs (308.64 pounds) which makes him the fattest of all cricketers. The selectors prioritized him over "Universal Boss" The Chris Gayle, who was willing to play his last Test series at home. Well, the end of an era to start another.

The 26 years old boy made his First-Class debut against Jamaica on 4 December'2014 at Kingston Oval. In his 55 matches, he scored 2224 runs averaging 24.43 including one hundred to his name. He has managed to pick up 260 first-class wickets averaging 23.90. His best in an innings is 8/108 and in a match is 12/205. His stats proved him to be a bowling allrounder who generally bats at number eight. 

The one-day series is not a promising one for Windies as they lost the second ODI by 59 runs. The first ODI result in a draw due to unconditional weather. The lads are ready to take on India in the 3rd ODI and rest of their tour matches.
