Samuels stars


Share post:

DHAKA – Stylish right-hander Marlon Samuels stroked his fifth One-Day International (ODI) century as West Indies beat Bangladesh by four wickets yesterday to halt a two-game losing skid, and haul themselves back into the five-match series.
Entering the third ODI at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium with an embarrassing series loss hanging over their heads, West Indies limited the Tigers to 227 all out off 49.1 overs before marching to their target off 47 overs.
Samuels, short of runs in the ODI series, returned to his best when it mattered most, carving a superb 126 from 149 balls with 17 fours and two sixes.
He batted patiently while also exploiting some wayward bowling by the seamers although he had a close call on 95 and was dropped at slip.  (CMC)
