West Indies batsman Samuels penalised for breaching code of conduct

West Indies batsman Samuels penalised for breaching code of conduct

For once, however, the result went against them although they ran close to make it exciting after the departure of Samuels with the West Indies losing four wickets for 20 runs.

Unexpected defeat by Afghanistan last week had halted the West Indies' momentum in the Super Sixes, from which the top two teams will qualify for next year's World Cup in England and Wales.

Zimbabwe nearly got off to a flying start but Raza could not hold on to a sharp catch at point that would have seen West Indies opening batsman Evin Lewis falling to Kyle Jarvis' bowling for a duck.

Samuels, who entered the game with the Windies on 110 for two in the 22nd over, said he had been unfazed by the tense situation of the game.

Windies kept their hopes of qualifying for the 2019 World Cup alive with a four-wicket win in a closely fought contest with Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club on Monday (March 19).

West Indies have the big hitting Christopher Gayle together with Evan Lewis, Shai Hope, Marlon Samuels and Rovman Powell who should play a big role for them with the bat.

Earlier, Brendan Taylor scored a magnificent 138, the first time he reached the magical three-figure mark against the West Indies and 10th overall, which boosted the home side to 289 in 50 overs. We've only got one game to go in sense ... so if Chris gets off, it's not only great to watch but it can be risky.

"We can't take anyone lightly in this competition".

"We have to put this to bed quickly, celebrate what we have achieved today but also put into account, in our minds what Scotland have in store for us".

Though with the pace attack on song Scotland have a chance of finding those early breakthroughs, whether they have the spinners to contain effectively in the middle overs is more open to question. A win over Scotland on Wednesday would guarantee their spot, but Law also suggested that Associate nations such as Scotland are no longer the pushovers they may once have been.

Some scary moments followed an over later after Solomon Mire was forced to retire out due to blurred vision after a delivery from Kemar Roach lodged in the grill of his helmet.

And with the likes of seamers Safyaan Sharif (14 wickets) and Brad Wheal (9) having shone in the tournament, Law says West Indies will be taking nothing for granted.

However, it was in partnership with Hope that Samuels shone, adding 135 for the third wicket, to put West Indies in sight of victory.
