Samuels, Smith in run fest
BENONI – In-form opener Devon Smith and middle order batsman Marlon Samuels plundered the bowling as West Indies piled up 508 in their first innings against a South African Invitational XI on the second day of their three-day tour match at Willowmoore Park yesterday.
Samuels, 103 overnight, powered his way to 203 before retiring out while Smith who resumed the second day on 82, carved out 174 before also retiring out as the West Indies stamped their authority on the match after dismissing the home side for 125 on the opening day.
None of the bowlers were able to trouble either Samuels or Smith who picked up from where they left off and again dominated the day’s play by sharing a solid third wicket stand that produced 360; adding 172 to their century stand posted on the opening day. (CMC)
