6.3

Southee to Samuels, no run, digs this in, gets good bounce, neck high, left alone outside off

6.4

Southee to Samuels, no run, sharp and short, at 137ks, Samuels doesn't want to play at it, and drops his wrists. The ball nips back in to surprise him and hit his forearm

West Indies 20/2   MN Samuels 1* (4b)
7.1

Boult to Samuels, no run, Nearly another wicket. Swinging in again, and lobbed back down the ground, just wide of Boult. Williamson from mid-on tries to catch the non-striker backing up, and N McCullum coming in to take the throw dives into the stumps

7.2

Boult to Samuels, no run, full and swinging in, Samuels a little early into the shot again. And it lobs into the leg side again

7.3

7.4

Boult to Samuels, no run, swinging in a little but from too far outside off to make him play

7.5

Boult to Samuels, no run, short of a length, on off, then seams away, almost like a cutter. Beaten

7.6

Boult to Samuels, no run, the leg-side trap nearly works. Full, swinging in, middle and leg, Samuels has the instinctive flick at it. In the air she goes, just over the short midwicket, and just short of the regulation man. Another maiden over

West Indies 20/3   MN Samuels 1* (10b)

Bracewell to Samuels, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone

14.4

NL McCullum to Samuels, SIX, Lovely shot. Samuels just takes half a stride down the wicket to turn this into a half-volley, and lofts him over long-on. Samuels is looking really good here

26.5

NL McCullum to Samuels, 1 wide, short and turning down again

26.5

26.6

NL McCullum to Samuels, OUT, N Mac strikes back. Samuels can't review this. Not that that would have made too much of a difference. Short of a length, pitches middle and leg, skids through, stays slightly low, and turns back in a little to trap him plumb. A good hand from Samuels, but the look on his face said he had done only half the job so far

MN Samuels lbw b NL McCullum 46 (93m 64b 6x4 1x6) SR: 71.87

West Indies 105/5   MN Samuels 46 (64b 6x4 1x6)
