NOTTINGHAM – Marlon Samuels stroked a high-class, unbeaten century while captain Darren Sammy was on the verge of another in a career-best innings, as the West Indies flirted with disaster before staging a brilliant recovery, to make a strong finish to the opening day of the second Test against England here yesterday.
The right-handed Samuels carved out a superb 107 and Sammy chimed in with a mature, unbeaten 88 to propel West Indies to 304 for six on a sun-kissed day at Trent Bridge.
Such enterprise was but a fleeting thought when West Indies collapsed in a heap at 136 for six, 35 minutes before tea after they had earlier won the toss and chose to bat in excellent conditions.
However, not for the first time this series, West Indies salvaged what seemed a terminal situation as Samuels and Sammy put on a record unbroken 168 for the seventh wicket as the Caribbean side dominated the final session (CMC/EZS)
