Sammy confident

Captain Darren Sammy has reiterated that the West Indies are not a one-man team, and that it will take a team effort to successfully defend their title in the World Twenty20.

Speaking after arriving here on Sunday, Sammy noted that despite the presence of big-hitting opener Chris Gayle, the team would need contributions from every member to do well in the March 16-April 6 tournament, reports CMC.

“Chris to me is the most destructive T20 batsman in the world,” Sammy said.

“It’s a great asset for us having him in the side but like in Sri Lanka when we won the title, it took a total team effort. The key players, different guys chipped in in different games.

“It’s no different this time. We’ve got to play as a team, we’ve got to gel well together and hopefully performances will come from the key players.” Gayle is the most sought after T20 batsman in World cricket and has plied his trade in the cash-rich IP.
