CareerEdit

Thomas is one of 3 wicket-keepers to have taken wickets in a One Day International. He achieved this feat bowling against Bangladesh cricket team in the 2nd ODI of the 3 match ODI series at Windsor Park (Dominica). He picked up the wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah, but could not prevent West Indies from losing the game.[3]

The other two wicket-keepers are India's Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Zimbabwe's Tatenda Taibu. [4]

He was the leading run-scorer for the Leeward Islands in the 2018–19 Regional Super50 tournament, with 238 runs in eight matches.[5] He was then the 2nd highest run-scorer for the team[6] in the 2018-19 Regional Four Day Competition, and 4th highest scorer in the competition as a whole.[7]
