Samuels leads to victory
FATULLAH – Marlon Samuels warmed up for greater battles over the next month with a boundary-studded, undefeated 102 and steady bowling to catapult West Indies to a 75-run victory over the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI yesterday.
All but 18 of Samuels’ runs were in boundaries, as West Indies posted 195 for three from their allocation of 20 overs in a Twenty20 tour match at the Osmani Stadium.
Batting at three, Samuels struck 15 fours and four sixes from just 56 balls, putting on 102 for the third wicket with compatriot Andre Russell, who smote three fours and three sixes in 58 from 35 balls.
Samuels corked a memorable match with an impressive spell bowling his off spin darts. He was the pick of the West Indies bowlers with two for 18 from four overs, as the BCB XI were restricted to 120 for six from their 20 overs. (CMC)
