DHAKA – Marlon Samuels’ brilliance allowed West Indies to sign off their Bangladesh tour on a high note with an 18-run win in yesterday’s Twenty20 International but not before suffering a scare from hosts still gushing from their 50-overs series triumph.
West Indies piled up 197 for four from their 20 overs but needed an astonishing unbeaten 85 off a mere 43 balls from Samuels to reach a challenging total, after opting to take first knock at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.
Samuels smashed three fours and nine incredible sixes to decimate the Bangladesh attack late in the innings as West Indies gathered 75 runs from the last five overs.
He struck four sixes and a four in the final over from seamer Rubel Hossain which cost 29 runs.
