Ashley Nurse

A tall and accurate offspin bowler who has been through something of a resurgence in recent years and was a key member of the team during qualifying


Born: December 22, 1988

Role: Right-hand bat, right-arm offspin

Off-spinner Ashley Nurse is an experienced campaigner by now having represented West Indies more than 50 times across all limited-overs cricket.

Nurse was first called up to the T20I squad to face Pakistan in one-off game in St Lucia aged 22. Nurse’s summons came off the back of two five-wicket hauls in just 11 T20 matches for Barbados but fitness issues caused him to be dropped after only two series.

After around three years out of the side, Nurse was recalled for a T20I series against South Africa but was still unable to establish himself as a regular with the likes of Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree and Sulieman Benn ahead of him in the pecking order.

An eventual ODI debut came against Sri Lanka in 2016 where Nurse took three wickets to help his side to a relatively comfortable win but another spell out of the side followed.

An injury to Badree handed Nurse a T20I return against England in 2017 and since then Nurse has finally managed to establish a regular place in the side, earning a white-ball contract from West Indies in 2018.
