Kadeem Alleyne is a very exciting young prospect from Barbados in the Caribbean. A powerfully built and athletic young man, Kadeem is a hard-hitting, Right-handed Top Order Batsman and Right-arm Medium/Fast Seamer. Kadeem currently plays for Gladiola CC in the Barbados Elite Cricket Competition and was always a promising junior, representing Barbados U19 amongst various other youth teams on the Island.
With a huge arc from his 6ft 4in frame, Kadeem is one of the cleanest strikers of a cricket ball we’ve ever seen. His clever seam bowling has also proved very useful through the age groups but for the most part, he had been surprisingly overlooked for any higher honours in Barbados.
In summer 2021, things changed. An opportunity to play league cricket in England arose, with Kadeem joining Diss CC in the Norfolk Premier Division. His impact was felt around the county very quickly, striking an incredible 114* off just 51 balls against eventual league joint-champions, Fakenham CC. He would go on to play a variety of similar knocks throughout the summer, with his most impressive an explosive 30-ball 68 against Club Cricket Conference which left the crowd in utter shock and he received a standing ovation on his departure.
In the background was an offer to join the St Lucia Kings for the 2021 Caribbean Premier League, with a former coach joining the franchise as an assistant, they quickly picked him as a rookie for the 2021 tournament. He made his debut against the Jamaica Tallawahs in Sept, bagging 3-53.
Now on a journey in to the world of Franchise cricket, Kadeem seeks constant improvement and will be seeking to play cricket in as many different countries as he can to continue to broaden his horizons and grow as a cricketer.
