Samuels copped the West Indies cricketer and One Day International Cricketer of the Year awards while Taylor was named women’s cricketer and ODI Cricketer of the Year.

Chris Gayle was the only other Jamaican to cop an award on the night; he was named T20 Cricketer of the Year.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Darren Bravo copped the test player of the year award. In addition to the individual awards, members of the West Indies Under-19 team, West Indies women’s team and West Indies men’s team received special commemorative rings.

The Under-19s won the ICC Youth World Cup while the men and women won the ICC World T20 titles earlier this year.
