    Profile

    Identified from an early age as the next West Indies superstar, the elegant Jamaican right-hander has not always lived up to expectations but now seems set to make amends in what can be termed as his second coming. Capable of brilliant batting and quickly compared to the past greats, Samuels’ made his Test debut against Australia at age 19 and a maiden century two years later against India in Kolkata, did little to tone down the rhetoric. A lean patch subsequently saw him endure a spell in the wilderness but in true Samuels fashion, he quickly returned to the spotlight with his second Test century against South Africa in Durban, Along the way, he added two fine One-Day International centuries and proved an asset with his stiff off-spin, to reiterate his versatility. Controversy removed him from the international scene for two years but he returned last year, smarter, wiser and hungry for runs. Over the last year, the 31-year-old has brought a maturity to the West Indies middle order, and is now considered as one of the team’s senior batsmen. He has stroked five half-centuries in Tests since his return and his average of 30 is likely to improve as he continues his resurgence.
