Fast bowler Oshane Thomas has been a big hit for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) thus far this season, impressing cricket watchers with his extreme pace.

After six matches, the 21-year-old native of Race Course in Clarendon has taken eleven wickets, second only to captain Andre Russell with 13 from seven games. Thomas is boasting a runs-per-wicket average of 16.45 and an economy rate of 7.86 in the 2018 CPL. Powerfully built and well over six feet tall, Thomas, who attended Race Course Primary and Garvey Maceo High School, made an immediate impact on first-class debut for Jamaica against the Windward Islands at Sabina Park in November 2016. Back then, the teenaged Thomas took a wicket with his first ball in first-class cricket, sending back West Indies opener Devon Smith, caught behind. Photo shows Thomas in his delivery stride during a CPL game at Sabina Park recently.
