Kingston: West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels announced his retirement from professional cricket on Wednesday.

As per a report by ESPNCricinfo, in June this year, the 39-year-old informed the Cricket West Indies (CWI) about his retirement. He last played for his country in December 2018 against Bangladesh.

Samuels came into limelight after he won the match of 2012 World T20 finals in Colombo.

During the 2016 World T20 final in Kolkata, Samuels became the only one to be named as the player of the match in two ICC finals after hitting an unbeaten 85 off 66 balls to get a four-wicket win against England.

Samuels, who began his international career in the year 2000, represented various T20 franchises all over the world, which also includes Delhi Daredevils, Pune Warriors, Melbourne Renegades, and Peshawar Zalmi.

The Jamaican cricketer had to serve a two-year ban for corruption. In 2008, he was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after he was found guilty for ‘receiving money’ and bringing the ‘game of cricket into disrepute.’

Almost six years before this, Samuel was almost sent home for defying a team curfew in India. He was further banned from bowling for a year after his action was found illegal in 2015.

At the international level, Samuels had played 71 Tests, 207 ODIs, and 67 T20s. He has scored 11,134 international runs including 17 centuries overall formats. He also has 152 international wickets to his name.
