Sammy celebrates victory in T20

Published on March 12, 2014 – Caribbean News Now

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — West Indies captain Darren Sammy hit a blazing 30 not out off just nine balls to pilot the world champions team to a five-wicket win over England in the second T20 International on Tuesday March 11, 2014.

Sammy’s power-hitting came as the Windies asking rate climbed to over 10 runs per over in the final stages. They reached 155-5 off 18.5 overs in reply to England’s 152-7 off 20 overs at Kensington Oval

The Man of the Match award went to left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie, who had career-best figures of 4-0-21-4 – with a combination of slower ball and cutters.

The victory gave the West Indies an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

    Not wishing to forecast next game…hope ENGLAND can
    fight harder for a victory….as a consolation only for its 2 best in 3.
    WI are champions already.
    Enjoyable to watch even on my tablet small screen.

    No Castro, West Indies will beat them again. Remember England is playing the world Champion and they have massive hitters which England do not have at least I think so. The last game was a good one and I am looking forward to a more exciting finish tomorrow Thursday – down to the wire. This is how I like to watch at these matches.

    Come on …give dem limeys a chance…deh name accustum to de climate…

    Hey me feel sorry for dem…they are the underdogs…

    Man you nah Hitler and it nah a war….only a battle.
    Give dem a handicap then…ha ha
    We all know WI will win so it is a bit boring…
    Maybe they should play 4 games and like football you can have draw
    and replay…..just idea to create more interest…more viewers !
    Will still look at it tomorrow anyway…
    Salud

    Well said, although I do not think the English are underdogs. I would like to see a very close finish either way. This is how I enjoy twenty/20 matches.
