Top 5 Marlon Samuels moments
4) India-West Indies ODI Series, 2002
7th ODI – 108 (Not Out) off 75 balls
The 2002 India- West Indies ODI series was a high scoring affair with most of the batsmen on either side plundering runs on flat batting wickets prepared by the Indian curators. The series was level at three games a piece and the final ODI at Vijayawada proved to be the perfect climax to play for the coveted trophy. Marlon Samuels though highly rated but relatively new to the international fold scored a scintillating century to clinch the series for the Windies.
Samuels scored a belligerent 108 off just 75 balls to set the Indians an imposing target of 315. The mammoth total proved to be a herculean task for the Indians to chase down and they eventually were bowled out for 180. His breathtaking century left an impregnable mark of his batting credentials on the international stage.Published 02 Sep 2016, 10:23 IST
