He did not play any form of cricket since 2014.
In a side that so often chopped and changed he became one of their most experienced bowlers. His knowledge of putting the ball in the right place and his high work rate are qualities that have been highly sought after in the current West Indian team. He often shares the new ball with youngsters like his childhood friend Fidel Edwards.
Since 1999 he has been in and out of the team due to both form and injury. His main injury complaint has been stress fractures. At the end of the West Indies' tour of England in 2000 many had written him off as he again broke down.
A determined man, he came back strongly and was part of the West Indies' World Cup campaign in 2003. He was recalled to the Test team where they hosted the Sri Lankans. After five wickets in the first Test, his career defining innings would come in the second. He led the charge to a seven wicket victory with 7 for 57.
His matured approach and accuracy with the ball was shown during India's tour of the West Indies in 2006. Collymore would finish with an economy rate of 2.33, a class above the more erratic younger bowlers. Corey used to bowl around the 90 mph mark but due to a back injury he had to remodel his bowling action to what it is.
