Samuels: I'm working harder, playing smarter

Dhaka, Bangladesh, CMC – Exciting stroke-maker Marlon Samuels has pointed to his new found maturity as the reason behind his form, since returning to international cricket.

On Saturday, the right-hander unfurled a high quality, unbeaten 88 to fire West Indies to an impressive eight-wicket win over Bangladesh in the second One-Day International here.

The knock was Samuels’s fourth consecutive score over 50 on the tour to date and he said his new approach to batting was paying dividends.

Samuels, Simmons power Windies to series win

Dhaka, Bangladesh, CMC – Marlon Samuels and Lendl Simmons stroked attractive half-centuries as West Indies beat Bangladesh by eight wickets in the second One-Day International here Saturday, to wrap up the three-match series with one match to play.

Chasing Bangladesh’s moderate 220 all out off 48.5 overs, West Indies were propelled to their target by Samuels’s unbeaten 88 and Simmons’s 80.

The pair posted 111 for the second wicket, after Danza Hyatt (39) and Simmons had laid the platform for the run chase with a measured 71-run opening stand.

Sammy returns as Windies bowl first

Mirpur, Bangladesh – Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat first in the second One-Day International against West Indies at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

The West Indies welcomed back captain Darren Sammy who made a full recovery after missing the opening match with upset stomach. He took the place of opener Adrian Barath, who has a sore right hamstring.

Bangladesh named an unchanged team from the starting XI which lost the opening match by 40 runs on Thursday.

Gibson: Sky is the limit for these guys

Dhaka, Bangladesh – Following the good win in the first One-Day International, West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson spoke about the side’s campaign so far.

“In terms of preparation, it was very hot here yesterday and today so we are not getting in as much practice as we would like. We have the medical team on standby to make sure the players are fit and ready for tomorrow’s second ODI. It is much more humid than what we are accustomed to so managing the heat and the players’ fitness is the focus.

Simmons delighted with maiden ton

Mirpur, Bangladesh, CMC – After promising much before with eight half-centuries, Lendl Simmons came good with his maiden international hundred to lead West Indies to a 40-run victory in the first One-day International on Thursday.

The 26-year-old opener earned the Man-of-the-Match award for his 122 that was the rock upon which West Indies built a challenging total of 298 for four from their 50 overs after they were sent in to bat.
