#3 Marlon Samuels
1611 runs in 67 T20Is with ten 50+ scores at the strike rate of 116.23 – these are the numbers of Marlon Samuels in his decade-long T20I career. Even though the numbers are not very impressive, Samuels’s contribution to the national team is beyond these numbers.
Samuels is the ‘man for the big occasion’. His Man of the Match performances in the 2012 and 2016 ICC T20 World Cup finals are examples of his greatness.
Currently, Samuels is out of the West Indies T20I side. He faltered in the recently concluded ODI series against India.
#4 Denesh Ramdin (Wicket Keeper)
Denesh Ramdin is arguably the best keeper among the players from the Caribbean Islands. In a team full of big-hitting entertainers, the viewers often miss his presence in the team. In 65 T20Is, he has scored 554 runs from 44 innings (in 461 deliveries) with the strike rate of 120.17. With the gloves, he has taken 36 catches and affected 20 stumpings.
Though he was sidelined from the ODI team with the emergence of Shai Hope, he remains an integral part in the T20I side. He will feature in the upcoming T20I series against India.Published 04 Nov 2018, 19:20 IST
