|DOB||20 December 1983|
The first international cricketer from St Lucia, the crowning moment for Sammy came in October 2010 when he became the first cricketer from his native Island to be named West Indies captain. That the West Indies went onto win their first world title since the 1979 World Cup, defeating hosts Sri Lanka in their own backyard in the 2012 World Twenty20 final, is testimony of his leadership qualities. His impact on the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Playoffs qualification in IPL 2013 was telling. Not only did he win games, but he also won over fans with his own brand of swagger and showmanship. SRH gave him up ahead of the 2015 season and RCB were quick to snap him up at the Player Auction.
