Holder has the final laugh!

Warner needs a wicket so he decides to bring Jason Holder back into the attack. He starts off slow, with Stokes hiting in the air for a double and Samson then smashing him for a SIX over the mid-wicket boundary. However, the experience comes in handy as Holder has the final laugh. 

He bowls an off-cutter and Samson fails to read the ball as it goes and hits the stumps. That would be the end of Samson, who did a decent job today. Departs after scoring 36 from 26 balls. RR: 86/2 (12 overs)
