West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels should be appointed captain of the One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 matches for the West Indies. Samuels is a remarkable player who has repeatedly demonstrated his heroics. Appointing Samuels captain of these two categories of the game will do the West Indies very well. This will give captain Darren Sammy the opportunity of concentrating on Test matches.
