20.6

Broad to Samuels, OUT, Samuels - who I was about to say looked in good nick - top-edges a brisk bouncer straight to deep midwicket! He got in a tangle against a short ball a couple of overs back but it lobbed short ... this time the miscue sailed high and not-so-handsome to the fielder on the rope

West Indies 79/4   MN Samuels 13 (21b 2x4)
