Brenton Anthony Parchment is a cricketer from the West Indies who is a right handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler.
In 2001 Parchment was the captain of the West Indies Under-19 team that won the series against England. In the three matches Parchment scored fifties in all the three matches and hence there were a lot of expectations from him. However he was a slow developer and could not build up on the initial success.

In 2003-04 he was a professional cricketer for Middlesbrough Cricket club which won the cup during Parchment’s first season. In 2005 he was a professional for the Farnworth Cricket Club. He assisted this club to win both the league and the cup in the Bolton league.
His first first-class century was scored in 2004-05. In 2006-07 he improved tremendously and with score of 111 and 168 finished the season with an average of 60.33. Considering this performance he was selected for the tour of Zimbabwe and further made his Test debut against South Africa at Durban. He is now associated with the Blackrod Cricket Club in the Bolston association. Here on his debut itself he made a huge score of 184 not out which is the highest score for the club.
