West Indies seamer Kemar Roach, who claimed 10 wickets in the ongoing Test against Australia, dedicated his performance to legendary fast bowler Malcolm Marshall, who would have been 54 on Wednesday. Marshall succumbed to colon cancer in 1999.

Roach said: “Today would have been Malcolm Marshall’s 54th birthday, it’s a special day. I looked up to him as a bowler. I’ve watched a lot of clips of him and he was just such a great, great bowler.

He was the best in the world at the time. I can’t really explain it, it’s a good feeling to know that I got some wickets on his birthday and it makes me feel warm.”
