In common with most of his team-mates, Rahim's T20 international record is less-than ordinary, but don't let the raw numbers fool you. Forget the 21-year-old's wicketkeeping, which remains a work in progress, it is his batting that is sure to catch the eye in the Caribbean. His high backlift allows for thrilling strokeplay on both sides of the wicket and, although his best T20 international score is just 14, his cause has not been helped by being shifted up and down the order. Rahim - who already has a Test hundred to his name and is excellent against spin - is likely to put those numbers right before too long.
