Profile

John Campbell, born in the island of Jamaica, is a powerful right-handed opening batsman and a utility off-break bowler. Campbell played for the Windies under-19 teams in the 2010 and the 2012 World Cups before plying his trade in the domestic circuit. A naturally built and aggressive opener, he grew up watching Chris Gayle bat, and emulates him in his aggressive style of play - a mirror image of sorts.

Campbell was also part of the victorious Jamaica Under-19 team in the regional championships. The Jamaican is a strong hitter of the cricket ball and has been on the fringes in terms of selection for the national team. John had a poor Under-19 World Cup in 2010 and didn't do much of notice in the 2012 edition either. He did, however, sore a hundred in the last play-off game to sign off in style.

He was handed a first-class debut for Jamaica in early 2014. His numbers have been far from flattering but the selectors have continued to invest in him, handing him a Test cap in the home series against England in early 2019, where he looked shaky to begin with but certainly came up with decent numbers for a debut series. In the ODI series that followed, Campbell got the chance to open with his idol, Chris Gayle, and may open with him in the 2019 World Cup if he can sustain his performances in white-ball cricket.
