SAMUELS 'FEELS GOOD' AFTER BEING CLEARED TO RESUME BOWLING
Thursday 29th September 2011

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been given the go-ahead to bowl again in international cricket. The 30-year-old, who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm off-spin, recently underwent tests on his bowling action in Perth, Australia. He passed the tests and the International Cricket Council (ICC) has granted permission resume bowling.

Samuels in presently in Dubai with the West Indies team on a one-week camp as they prepare for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. He was naturally very pleased with the good news.
 
“It feels really good to know that I can bowl again in international cricket. I have been waiting for this moment for a while now. I am mainly a batsman in the team but it feels good to know that I can again contribute to the team in another area – with the ball. I am the kind of player who likes to be always involved in the game so this is great news for me and for the team,” he said.
 
Samuels, who made his debut for West Indies in Australia 11 years ago, has so far taken seven wickets in 32 Test matches and 57 wickets in 117 One-Day Internationals, at an economy rate of 4.8 runs per over. He thanked former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams and West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson for their help and advice.
 
“I really want to thank Jimmy Adams for working with me in the nets and helping me through this process. After I came back into the West Indies set-up Ottis Gibson continued the work from where Jimmy left off and helped me to get the positive result I was aiming for,” Samuels said.
 
“I have been spending a lot of time doing a lot of bowling in the nets so that I could get my body accustomed to the work, so that anytime the captain calls on me, in any of the three formats of the game, I will be ready.”
