The West Indies are yet to win a match at the ICC World Twenty20 Championship, but the real business starts tomorrow in the Super Eights stage when they will meet defending champs England at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.
The Caribbean cricketers lost their opening game to Australia on the Duckworth/Lewis method, while the second group match against Ireland was rained out with only one innings completed.
“We just believe we can go out there and win. Yes, I am aware of what happened back in the World Cup in the Caribbean when England qualified without a win and won the tournament.
“As I said before, the most important thing is our belief and we just have to do well in the Super Eights. We just need to go out there and bowl properly and execute our plans,” captain Darren Sammy said.
“We have strong belief in ourselves and in the team. The first goal was to reach the Super Eights and we have achieved that. Now we need to start off very well against England.
“This is the business end of the tournament and we mean business. We have not played a lot, we have not played a full match, so we have a lot left in us,” added Sammy.
