A right-hand middle-order batsman and part-time off-spinner, Travis Dowlin was thrust into the Test squad rather unexpectedly when the senior West Indies players went on strike over a contracts dispute before the St Vincent Test against Bangladesh in 2009. He had the numbers to back his inclusion, finishing as the second-highest run-getter for Guyana with 580 runs in the regional competition that season.
Debuting in 1996-97, he played for West Indies A and was named in the provisional squad for the 2007 World Cup. He was also a part of the Stanford Superstars squad in 2008.
Dowlin made his Test debut on 09 July 2009 against Bangladesh in the West Indies, along with six other members of an understrength West Indies team. The side was captained by Floyd Reifer, who had played the last of his four Tests ten years earlier. Despite the trying circumstances, Dowlin was impressive in the series, falling five short of a deserving century in Grenada. He did, however, score an unbeaten century in the one-day series against the same opponents.
Dowlin was also member of another understrength West Indies squad that traveled to South Africa to compete in the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy. He played all three matches as the West Indies exited the competition at the group stage.
When the regular players returned, Dowlin was retained in the West Indian squad for the tour to Australia, where he played, with fair success, in the first and third Tests in Brisbane and Perth.
