Samuels hit eight fours and four sixes in his 92-ball knock that propelled the Hurricanes to 287 for 5, which in the end was more than enough to secure the victory.

Powell was the first to go, stumped by wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton off the bowling of Chris Gayle for 44. Powell’s dismissal brought Samuels to the crease and together with Hodge took the score to 134 when Hodge was out caught and bowled to Nikita Miller for 61. His knock consumed 87 deliveries and included nine fours.

Samuels, who was particularly savage on Andre Russell, who was playing his first match after a one-year ban for a whereabouts rule violation, again featured in another half-century stand with Devon Thomas, whose contributed 27 to the 54-run stand.
