“Knows the circumstances well”: Darren Sammy names West Indian cricketer who can harass India




Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy backed the Kieron Pollard-led side to do well in the ODI and T20I series against India in February. West Indies will tour India for three ODIs and as many T20Is. The tour kicks off with the three-match ODI series. All three ODIs will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, while the T20Is will take place at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The first ODI starts on February 6.

Sammy, the lone captain to win two T20 World Cup trophies, said the West Indies should “nurture their chances” against the strong Indian side. The former all-rounder said Pollard’s years of experience playing in India will help the squad.

“I think Pollard will definitely appreciate his chances (against India). He’s been playing in India for so long, he knows the conditions well,” Sammy told PTI news agency.

“During the (ongoing) England series, we discovered some new talents. I think the West Indies could go there (India) and do well,” he added.

India struggled in their last ODI series in South Africa when the KL Rahul-led side was routed 0-3 by the Proteas. They had lost 1-2 in the previous Test Series.

Asked if it would be an advantage for the West Indies given India’s struggles in their last series, Sammy said: “India has always been strong at home, they are a force to be reckoned with because of some really good one-day players. “

India is going through a transition phase and the West Indies series will be the first series under full-time captain Rohit Sharma, who has recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him off the South African tour.

Also West Indies have fallen back on some of their tried and true players for the India series. Fast bowler Kemar Roach has been recalled to the ODI squad and Sammy believes the pacer will be the key to making breakthroughs with the new ball.

Roach, 33, last played an ODI match for the West Indies against India at the Queen’s Park Oval in August 2019.

“We need bowlers who can take wickets in both the ODI and T20 series. Kemar is a good bowler. We all know his records in test cricket. He gets wickets with the new ball.”

“When you play against quality guys, especially in India, you need guys to get breakthroughs with the new ball. If not, you could be chasing over 300 players, especially on good Indian wickets.


“So I was able to understand the selection process behind it,” said Sammy, who greeted the decision of the Desmon Haynes-led selection committee.
