Sammy slams CWI over decline
LONDON – Two-time Twenty20 World Cup-winning captain Darren Sammy has blasted Cricket West Indies (CWI) for the continued decline of the international side, and has painted a bleak future for the team once the Dave Cameron-led administration remains in charge.
In a sharp critique of the state of West Indies cricket, the all-rounder told the Tuffers And Vaughan Show that he could not envision an immediate turnaround for West Indies, especially since none of the leading players were ever likely to represent the region again because of CWI’s policies.
“I am very scared [for the future of West Indies cricket]. For a team that has dominated cricket for 17 years during the period in the 1980s and the early 1990s, to be in that position right now,” Sammy said.
“I am scared that we might be relegated to the [league of the] Irelands and Scotlands, playing against these guys which is very, very sad – if something doesn’t change. And, at the moment, the guy has just been re-elected for another term. I can’t see it happening. It’s very sad for us.” (CMC)
