'Win will ease pain of tragedy'

A couple of days back, 17 people were killed in an accident when a bus fell off a cliff into the ocean. The driver of the bus was a friend of Sammy’s father, and several of the dead were from his community.

“I’d just like to express my sincere condolences to my community in Dugard and St Lucia,” the first St Lucian to play Test cricket for the West Indies told newsmen on Sunday afternoon. “This is the most tragic accident we have had in the history of the island. My heart goes out to the community and families in this tragic time.”

Sammy continued, “Being a positive person, I intend to use this as a motivation to go out there to play well. If there is one thing that could bring a smile in such times, it is to see a West Indies team win and that will be my primary focus in this Test.”
