Marlon Samuels scorched 98 and the West Indies  produced three partnerships of 73 runs or more as they caught Australia’s total of 265 to win Monday’s (13 June) matchup in the Tri-Nations Series, in St. Kitts.

Australia’s Steven Smith and Usman Khawaja partnered for 170 in Australia’s innings but the rest of the order was kept in check.

Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles’ opening partnership of 74 runs got things going for the Caribbean side, which won by four wickets.

Dwayne Bravo and Samuels’ third-wicket partnership of 82 kept things going and Samuels and Denesh Ramdin then produced a fifth-wicket partnership of 73.

“It’s very important for us to win as a team,” Samuels said afterward. “We’re gelling together as a team and we’re building a team and it’s gonna be a very strong team to beat in the future. So hopefully guys can keep their focus and continue to come out and play some good cricket.”

Australia leads the points table with nine, one clear of West Indies with one game in hand. South Africa has five points.

The Windies return to the field Wednesday (15 June) versus the Proteas.
