Samuel Badree is one of the quintessential examples of a T20 specialist. A crafty leg spinner who thrives predominantly on his accuracy rather than the amount of the turn he produces, and he has the ability to open the bowling for his side.
The advent of T20 cricket in 2006 changed Badree’s career. He shot to fame in the local editions of the Caribbean T20, and eventually went on to make his T20I debut for West Indies when New Zealand toured the USA in Jun 2012. Badree has played in the final of both the 2012 & 2016 WT20 victories. He went on to become the number one ranked bowler in the ICC T20I ranking in Mar 2014 during the WT20 in Bangladesh, and since then hasn’t dropped out of the Top 5.
