Colombo: Oct 6, 2012

 

West Indies captain Darren Sammy announced on the eve of the ICC World Twenty20 final that they are ready to spoil the Sri Lankan party by winning the coveted title on Sunday.

 

“Definitely, we will be looking to spoil that party. That’s what we’re looking to do. We left home on a mission and like I have said before, it is just one more hurdle to jump,” a smiling Sammy told a packed media conference on Saturday.

 

“We want to have our own party. We Caribbean people know how to party. We enjoy parties in depth,” he added.

 

The Sri Lankan team knows the conditions well but his team’s focus will be on what they can do, said Sammy.

 

“Obviously, they are playing at home, they know their conditions well. I just hope we get a very good cricket wicket, where batsmen could enjoy playing their strokes and the bowlers have something for them as well.

 

“I’m hoping we’re going to get a good T20 wicket. But whatever we get, we just go out there and execute. We are going to focus on them but we are going to put more emphasis on us, what we could do.”

 

On Sunday, they will also have to play against a vociferous 35,000 strong crowd at the Premadasa Stadium, and he is not overawed by the occasion.

 

“We expect that. If we were at home and in the final, it would be the same thing. The crowds will be behind Sri Lanka but the belief in the dressing room is that we’ve done what we had to do to get to the final.

 

“Once we get there, probably we have to bring out our A-plus game as we needed our A-game to beat Australia and we have to play a touch better to beat Sri Lanka. We believe we can do that.” (PTI)
