Kingston: Stroke-maker Marlon Samuels said on Saturday that his first international century in the Caribbean had been made even more special by the presence of fellow Jamaican Chris Gayle.
The right-handed Samuels stroked an exquisite, unbeaten 101 and shared 129 for the third wicket with Gayle who got 125, as the West Indies beat New Zealand by 55 runs in the second One-Day International at Sabina Park. ( Read match report here)
"I played exactly the way I wanted to today. Chris set the stage with his awesome power at the top of the innings and then I was able to come in and add the finishing touches," Samuels said.
