In this article, we will show you the cricket players who played under most captains in their cricket career!
Marlon Samuels – 17 captains:
Marlon Samuels is the record holder for playing under the most different captains in International cricket. Samuels played under a total of 17 captains although he couldn’t appear in 400 international matches after playing for 19 years. He participated in 364 international matches; all for West Indies.
The only time that he captained his nation was on their Sri Lankan tour in 2015 during an ODI. During Daren Sammy’s captaincy, Samuels played 98 matches, the most internationals he played under any captain.
In the past decade, the bulk of the star players have made themselves eligible for the T20 leagues across the globe. But, Samuels remained faithful to the Caribbean team, and represented them in all three formats until poor form caught up.
West Indies had multiple captains in the last couple of years, especially in T20Is, and Samuels played under most of them. Samuels played 10 or more matches only under eight out of the 17 captains in International cricket.
