Marlon Samuels: The First Six Hitter of the World Cup Cricket 2007

West Indian batsman Marlon Samuels hit the first over boundary or six of the World Cup Cricket 2007. It was first ball of the 28th over of the West Indies innings. The bowler was Iftikhar Anjum. It was a half pitched ball and very close to the off stump but not too much bouncy. The batsman Marlon Samuels got too much room to make such an excellent straight shot. Brian Lara was at the crease at that moment.

However, both Samuels and Lara have backed to the pavilion. Now West Indies is 181 for 6. Having lost three early wickets both Marlon Samuels and Brian Lara could hold the match up in favor of West Indies. Now the host team is really struggling.
