West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy said his team really needs to perform their best to beat India in ICC Cricket World Cup at the WACA on Friday.
India and West Indies will face each other on Indian festive season. Indian media asked if he would celebrate with colors if West Indies won, Sammy beamed and said, “India should celebrate Holi but we will like to celebrate victory.”
These two teams had faced each other on the same fest in 2011 and India won the game. Darren Sammy also admitted that there’s been lack of uniformity as far as West Indies’ bowling is concerned.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the West Indies training session in Perth, Sammy said, “I think it’s about being inconsistent. We haven’t created enough pressure on the opponents when we bowl. In the games when we get it right, we compete with best in the world. We have to maintain proper line and length and bowl the yorkers at the death. We have to come up with a plan to minimize the damage that can be done at the back-end of the innings.”
Sammy said that we have plans in place for Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan but the execution part will also be essential.
