West Indies Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy says his blistering batting in the recently concluded World Twenty20 in Bangladesh has stemmed from clarity in thinking.
Speaking to CMC Sports in his first interview after returning from Bangladesh with the West Indies team, Sammy said that he had taken a new approach to his batting in T20s.
“Right now, when I go to the wicket I have a clear idea of how I want to play,” said the Windies skipper, while witnessing the finals of the Secondary Schools Under-19 competition at the Gros-Islet Playing Field.
“It`s something I have developed. In the absence of Kieron Pollard, my role is to finish the innings whether we are batting first or chasing runs.”
Sammy played two scintillating innings as he helped West Indies advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.
He smashed an unbeaten 34 from 13 balls against Australia to get the Caribbean side home with two balls to spare and returned against Pakistan to belt a career-best 42 not out off 20 balls, to lay the groundwork for the Windies` 84 run triumph.
