Rahkeem Cornwall creates a unique record on Test debut

Off-spinning all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall, who made his Test debut for West Indies on Friday in the second Test against India, has become the heaviest cricketer to play international cricket.

Cornwall, who is 6”6″ tall and weighs around 140 kg, surpassed former Australia captain Warwick Armstrong, who weighed 133-139 kg, to achieve the feat. Armstrong played 50 Tests between 1902 and 1921, leading Australia in 10 of them.

Cornwall, 26, earned his Test cap after taking 260 wickets in 55 first-class matches besides scoring 2,224 runs at 24.43.
