Sammy to miss remainder of ODI series


Darren Sammy_1[]West Indies T20 and Test captain Darren Sammy will not be eligible for selection in the current one day series after being sidelined with injury.

Sammy, who did not play in the third ODI due to a hamstring injury, will not play in the 4th nor 5th games.

West Indies ODI Captain Dwayne Bravo confirmed the move yesterday at a press conference.

Nonetheless, Bravo said that despite their inexperience, there was a hunger he wanted to bring out in this nelson fixture to silence critics.

After Corey Anderson pummeled West Indies’ bowling attack with a record ODI 131 off 47 balls, the One Day International skipper said his side had returned to the drawing board with an aim to create new plays.

He said that they have also developed plans for Jesse Ryder, who smashed a whirlwind 104 from 51 balls, and equaled the 6th fastest ODI century.

He added that he felt Anderson’s cavalier knock was due to the fact that it was a shortened match.

The captain contended that while this chilly weather placed them out their comfort zone, he needed more from his charges.

He also dispelled rumors that Chris Gayle or Kieron Pollard could return for the T20 fixtures later this month.
