Codville Rogers

Profiles

Codville-RogersThe Kittitian-born Codville Rogers, a tall and lankily built left-handed batsman who is a natural stroke maker, possesses the sort of timing and finesse comparable to top-flight players especially when playing with a vertical blade.

While he remains particularly confident when executing cross-batted shots, it has often brought about his demise in some particularly unwieldy ways. He is most comfortable to fast bowling and his upright stance and free flowing arms allow him to pierce the offside field with utter grace. Against slower leather-flingers he is sometimes found wanting through a lack of positive footwork.

 Ironically, this manner of play, which befits a batsman with the least care in the world, has allowed him to produce substantial performances against high quality opponents. In a game against the England test team on their 2009 tour of the West Indies, his two half-centuries for the St. Kitts-Nevis Invitational XI left many spectators, a few journalists and perhaps some of the English players wondering why he is unable to play in an under performing Leeward islands team in the regional first class competition.
