The pair of Marlon Samuels and Kieran Powell consolidated their partnership to take West Indies to 137 for one after 29 overs in the third One-Day International against India at Kanpur. Samuels and Powell completed their respective ODI half-centuries.

After the dismissal of Charles, Powell and Samuels batted sensibly not attacking the pacers who looked threatening. But once the pitch eased up, they went for the strokes and collected runs from boundaries.

Powell has made the opportunity count with consecutive half-centuries. He replaced injured Chris Gayle in the playing XI. The par score here is around 240 and West Indies are well on their way.
