Early and domestic career

From Saint Mary Parish, Campbell played for the West Indies under-19s at the 2012 Under-19 World Cup in Australia.[1] Against England in the fifth-place playoff, he scored 105 from 133 balls, his team's only century at the tournament.[2] Campbell made his senior debut for Jamaica at the 2012–13 Caribbean Twenty20.[3] His first-class and List A debuts came the following season, and he has been a regular in the team since then.[4][5] Against the Leeward Islands in the 2013–14 Regional Four Day Competition, Campbell scored his maiden first-class century, 110 runs from 180 balls.[6] His maiden first-class five-wicket haul came during the 2015–16 season of the same competition, when he took 7/73 against Trinidad and Tobago.[7]

International career

In January 2019, he was named in the West Indies' Test squad for their series against England.[8] He made his Test debut for the West Indies against England on 23 January 2019.[9] In February 2019, he was added to the West Indies' One Day International (ODI) squad, also for the series against England.[10] He made his ODI debut for the West Indies against England on 20 February 2019.[11] The following month, he was also named in the West Indies' Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their series against England.[12] He made his T20I debut for the West Indies against England on 10 March 2019.[13]

In the opening match of the 2019 Ireland Tri-Nation Series, against Ireland, Campbell scored his first century in ODIs.[14] Campbell and Shai Hope went on to make 365 runs for the opening wicket. It was the highest opening partnership in ODIs,[15] and it was also the first time that both openers had scored 150 runs each in an ODI match.[16]

In May 2019, Cricket West Indies (CWI) named him as one of ten reserve players in the West Indies' squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.[17][18] In June 2020, Campbell was named in the West Indies' Test squad, for their series against England.[19] The Test series was originally scheduled to start in May 2020, but was moved back to July 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[20]
