But he made it compacted with a strange run out. In the meantime he also make pressure to his team and make himself embarrassing. At the 42nd over of West Indies innings Samuels were batting as 4 runs. Pushing after Nathan Lyon’s 3rd ball of the over to backward point region Samuels make a run. But after same steps he stopped himself. And then again run! On the middle of the 22 yard he fall after losing balance. On the meantime non striker Craig Braffet reach on his end. But before Samuels get his balance Jose Hazelwood and Wicket Keeper Pitter Neville broke his stamp. And what a bad luck for Samuels, the rain come down after his out. If he wouldn’t out on that ball, he can back on dressing room as not out.
