Bio

The towering Sulieman Benn might be built like a fast bowler, but the bowling allrounder has impressed with his left-arm orthodox since breaking into the one-day international team in April 2008.

A useful batsman, Benn was a fairly regular member of the West Indies line-up between 2008 and 2011, including six appearances during the last ICC Cricket World Cup.

In three standout performances at that tournament he collected 4-18 against Bangladesh, 4-53 against Ireland and 3-28 against Netherlands.

He returned to the ODI team in October 2014, picking up two wickets in three matches.

Benn has had his ups and downs in the Test arena, but produced good performances through the second half of 2014 after being recalled to the team following a four-year absence.

He has taken 87 wickets from 27 Tests and 39 from 47 ODIs.
