Samuels ton helps WI pull one back

Marlon Samuels hit a fighting hundred to help the West Indies stage a comeback in their one-day internationals series against Bangladesh with a five-wicket win in the third match. West Indies trail the five match series 2-1.

The 31-year-old Jamaican notched a 149-ball 126 to steer the West Indies to a 228-run target with three overs to spare after Sunil Narine (4/37) bowled the home team for 227 in 49.1 overs. Samuels fell in the 47th over with only six required for a win, hitting 17 boundaries and two sixes to help the tourists to an important win. Samuels added an invaluable 111 runs for the second wicket with Kieran Powell (47). Abdur Razzak and Mortaza took two wickets apiece. Earlier, Mohd Mahmudullah (52), Mushfiqur Rahim (38) and Anamul Haque (33) were the main run-getters for Bangladesh.
