England frustrated by Sammy and Samuels
Marlon Samuels scored a superb century as he and Darren Sammy dug the West Indies out on trouble on day one of the second Test.
Having won the toss Sammy wasted little time in opting to bat in glorious conditions at Trent Bridge as the tourists went in search of the win that would level the three Test series with England.
However, two wickets apiece from Stuart Broad and James Anderson reduced the Windies to 63-4 and left them staring down the barrel.
With England well on top Shivnarine Chanderpaul entered proceedings and frustrated England, making 46 off 86 delivers before he was dismissed lbw to Graeme Swann.
Denesh Ramdin was quick to follow Chanderpaul back to the pavilion after being bowled by Tim Bresnan and once again the West Indies looked in danger of collapsing at 136-6.
But Samuels and Sammy were to frustrate England during the evening session as they batted superbly in near-perfect conditions to give the Windies some hope.
Samuels took 219 balls to reach his century and ended the first day unbeaten on 107, his highest Test score, with skipper Sammy alongside him on 88 as the tourists ended the first day 304-6.
