KINGSTON---West Indies batsman Marlon
Samuels has expressed reasonable satisfac-
tion with his returns after scoring a half-
century for the West Indies during a tour
warm-up one-day match against India A
at Brabourne Stadium Friday.
Samuels, playing in his first game since
making a return to the West Indies team after
being dropped from Tests in June, made a top
score of 56 off 59 balls in the West Indians'
below-par score of 148 off 38.1 overs.
India A', in their reply, coasted to 149 for
one off 25.3 overs.
"I missed out on a big one today after fight-
ing off the early pressure but, nevertheless,
I have to be satisfied with what I got," said
"I am definitely looking forward to us win-
ning the second warm-up game against India
A', and if I get the opportunity to bat again,
I am definitely looking to get a bigger one
Samuels, who hit nine fours during his
innings in the first warm-up, which saw India
A' boasting three front-line spinners, also
expressed combating slower bowlers would
be key to the regional side doing well on the
India A' used leg-spinners Amit Mishra
and Karn Vinod Sharma, and off-spinner
Parvez Rasool with Mishra, who has played
134 Tests and 57 one-dayers for India, finishing
with three for 26 off his 10 overs.
"I have been to India quite a few times,
and pitches down here spin quite a lot," he
"I guess I am accustomed to it, and it is
just for me to use my experience and try to
come off the strike as much as possible, and
not to let the spinners bowl too many balls
In places like in India, if a spinner continues
to bowl too much balls to you, you can soak
up a lot of balls."
The second warm-up is slated to get under
way today. The first one-day international
against India will be played on Wednesday.
