Profile

Samuel Badree may be listed as a legspinner, but he hardly turns the ball. His accuracy though is near impeccable - so much that West Indies have used him to open the bowling in 28 out of 28 T20Is, right up to winning a world championship in India in 2016. He came out of that tournament ranked the No. 1 bowler in the format. Not too many physical education teachers can top that resume, so Badree's position at Barrackpore East Secondary School in Trinidad should be safe. Badree made his first-class debut in 2001-02 and his List A debut the next season. But by the time he was a two-time world champion in T20s - over a decade into his career - he had played only 12 first-class and 33 List A matches. His skills in the shortest format, however, were highly rated. He played his first T20 match in 2006 and racked up his 100th game eight years later. And it's helped him travel too. Badree has been a part of three different IPL teams, won the inaugural Pakistan Super League title with Islamabad United, claimed a career-best 5 for 22 in the Big Bash League in 2015-16, mentored young Australian spinners before that stint, and represented his home team Trinidad & Tobago in the Caribbean Premier League
