JAMAICANS Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels starred yesterday as the West Indies beat New Zealand by 55 runs at Sabina Park to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match One Day International cricket series.
Gayle (left) continued his triumphant return to the regional side by logging his 20th One-Day International century to break legendary Brian Lara’s record tally of 19 for the most centuries by a West Indian in One Day cricket.
Gayle smashed a typically stroke-filled 125, laced with eight fours and nine sixes off 107 balls, while Samuels fashioned an unbeaten 101, adorned with seven fours and a six off 103 balls as the Windies piled up 315 for five and then dismissed New Zealand for 260.Please read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition.
