Marlon Samuels Marlon Samuels

Marlon Samuels has been one of the most talented batsmen West Indies cricket has seen in the modern era of the regional game. From a very young age, the selectors of West Indies cricket saw great promise in the Jamaican batsman. He started his Test career at the age of 19, without yet representing his Jamaica in a First Class match - so good was he. There is a story that goes around that he used to skip his schoolwork on the basis that exams were irrelevant to future Test cricketers.

In the 71 Test matches he has played, he has a healthy average of 32.64 with his highest Test score 260 coming against Bangladesh in Khulna. He also has a World T20 title to his name, and he starred in the final against Sri Lanka as well, hitting a 78 runs to help the Windies to its first major title since 1979. He has played all three formats for the West Indies team and is one match away from 200 One Day Internationals.

As he gets ready to celebrate his 38th birthday in February, 2019, in the twilight of his career, Marlon would be eyeing a spot on West Indies' World Cup team, and to help bring home a trophy that has eluded the West Indies for far too long.
