Share post:

WEST INDIES suffered a major blow when they lost the key wicket of Marlon Samuels on the stroke of lunch on the second day of the first cricket Test against Zimbabwe at Kensington Oval on Wednesday.
Samuels was caught behind by wicket-keeper Regis Chakabwa off occasional medium pacer Hamilton Masakadza for 51 to leave the West Indies on 144 for five, 67 runs behind Zimbabwe’s first innings total of 211.
The experienced Shivnarine Chanderpaul is not out on 25 at the interval.
Earlier, the Windies, resuming from 18 for two, also lost the wickets of their overnight pair, Darren Bravo and Chris Gayle.
Bravo was out for 11, edging a catch to Chakabwa off fast bowler Kyle Jarvis while Gayle became the first Test wicket for rookie pacer Tendai Chatara when he was caught at second slip by Zimbabwe’s captain Brendan Taylor for 40.
Jarvis has so far taken three for 27 in 11 overs while Chakabwa has one for 40 and Masakadza, one for 14. (EZS)
