Darren Sammy urges West Indies to stay hungry ahead of series against Bangladesh

Darren Sammy urges West Indies to stay hungry ahead of series against Bangladesh

Dhaka: Nov 11, 2012

 

West Indies captain Darren Sammy wants his players to “stay hungry” and to build on recent successes when they meet Bangladesh on Tuesday in the first of two cricket Tests.

 

Sammy’s men are buoyed by victory in the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka last month following a 2-0 home Test win over New Zealand.

 

They are looking to continue the good work in a Bangladesh tour which also includes five one-day games and a Twenty20.

 

Sammy, who led the West Indies to a 1-0 Test victory over Bangladesh  last year, said his team must maintain the momentum.

 

“I think World Twenty20 was a great achievement for us but we have got to stay hungry. We can’t keep thinking because we won the World Twenty20 that we have turned the corner,” he said.

 

West Indies, a major force in world cricket from the 1970s to the 1990s, slumped miserably in the new century. They have, however, shown an improvement under the unassuming Sammy as captain and hard-working coach Ottis Gibson.

 

With Chris Gayle in good touch and the ever-reliable Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who has played in 144 Tests, they boost a strong batting line-up.

 

Gayle plundered 150 and 64 not out in the first Test against New Zealand in July — his first Test after a two-year exile following a falling-out with the cricket administration.
