Samuels steers Windies to T20 sweep

Jun 6, 2017 - 3:22 AM A virtuoso display from Marlon Samuels fired West Indies to a seven-wicket win and gave them a Twenty20 series sweep over Afghanistan.

Samuels hit an unbeaten 89 off 66 balls - his career-best in a T20 international - to help the hosts chase down their target of 147 with four balls remaining in Basseterre.

The right-hander plundered three sixes and nine fours to earn his side a 3-0 series win, with Jason Mohammed finishing on 23 not out.

The tourists set a competitive target, thanks mainly to opener Noor Ali Zadran and Mohammed Nabi who hit 35 and 38 respectively.

Zadran was particularly explosive at the top of the innings, hitting five fours and two sixes.

But Kesrick Williams dismissed both men in his figures of 3-34 as Afghanistan posted 6-146.

They lost Chadwick Walton to just the second ball of the innings, but that brought Samuels to the crease and once he got going there was only ever going to be one outcome.
