The West Indies Cricket Board has named Darren Sammy as Captain of the West Indies Team for the Jamaica Cricket Association Festival, with Denesh Ramdin as Vice Captain. Travis Dowlin has been named captain for the West Indies A Team against Zimbabwe in Grenada.
Sammy said, “Being appointed to captain the West Indies team here in Jamaica is an honour for me. I will take it very seriously and look to do my best in this capacity. I see it as another chapter in my development as a player.
“Whenever I go onto the cricket field I always try to make a positive contribution. I believe I have the ability to do a good job at the helm and I know I will get the full support of everyone in the team as well as the management and support staff.“This is an opportunity to prepare properly for the ICC World T20 Tournament. It is great to have Ramnaresh Sarwan and Jerome Taylor back after a break, and I know all the members of the team will be ready to contribute as we look forward to the big tournament at the end of the month.”
Meanwhile, Travis Dowlin noted, “It is always good to be asked to represent the West Indies and I’m really looking forward to the job of leading the team against Zimbabwe. The team includes some young players who are eager to get the opportunity to represent the West Indies.“It will be something new for most of the players, who have just played at the regional level. The international exposure will be great and we are all looking forward to the coming weeks.
“I will have a major role to play in upcoming matches. This series will be a great opportunity for all of us to showcase what we have to offer. It will provide us with great exposure, as we are playing against an international team.”
