This win is for the people of West Indies - Darren Sammy

West Indies created history as the Calypso Kings became the first team to win the ICC World T20 twice. England were on the receiving end of the late onslaught from Carlos Braithwaite, as his four sixes in the final over off Ben Stokes sealed off the game for the West Indies.

Post the game, skipper Darren Sammy was simply ecstatic as he spoke his heart out. Sammy thanked the fans and the people of West Indies for their support. The West Indies skipper also slammed the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for their callous attitude towards the players.

“Firstly, I want to thank the almighty. Andre Fletcher kept praying,” Sammy said. “I was serious hitting from Brathwaite. I said before that we have 15 match winners in the side. To see him play like that and win the world cup was amazing. We started our journey. We were wondering if we would be part of this tournament. A lot of things were happening. We were disrespected by our board,” said Sammy.

“To come out and play this sort of cricket in front of passionate fans was amazing. The trouble our manager got into to get us into this uniform was just beyond words. This win is for the people in the Caribbean. Everybody is the West Indies are champions,” Sammy added.

Sammy has indeed sent a very strong message about the shambolic state of cricket in the Caribbean. But with triumphs in the U19 World Cup, the Women’s T20 World Cup and now the World T20, cricket indeed is the winner in the West Indies.
