40.2

Samuels to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, oh Tamim, what have you done?! He has the bowlers at his mercy when he chooses to throw it all away with a needless slog. Samuels flights this on middle stump, Tamim - who has been so selective so far - can't restrain himself from slog-sweeping. It wasn't straight enough for the shot, and he got a top edge. It swirled up and settled in the hands of midwicket when it came down. As inexplicable as someone choosing to commit suicide immediately after realising he had a billion dollar inheritance.
