Kingston:International discard Marlon Samuels reminded the West Indies selectors that he is back to his very best when he pulled off a scintillating all-round performance to spur Melbourne to a strong position over St. Catherine CC on the opening day of their seventh round Supreme Ventures Super Cup match at Melbourne Oval here.
The promising all-rounder, out in the wilderness for quite some time now, snared a rich haul of 8-34 from 22 overs as St. Catherine were dismissed for a measly 104.
Samuels then returned to club a solid half-century (54) to lift Melbourne from a precarious 34 for 5 to a healthy 220, thus gaining a first innings lead of 116.
