Sammy – Windies not daunted by India
PERTH, Australia – Allrounder Darren Sammy says West Indies is not daunted by the prospects of facing unbeaten India when the two teams clash in the ICC Cricket World Cup Group B fixture on Friday.
West Indies remain in contention for a place in the quarter-finals having won two matches and lost two and with two more matches to play in the preliminary round.
Jason Holders’ men are in fourth place in the pool behind India who has won all their matches played followed by South Africa and Ireland.
“We go out on the cricket field looking to win matches. It would be good to get a win against India,” said Sammy.
“The Indian team is good but we are not going to focus solely on them. We are going to focus on what we could do…once we do what we could do we are going to defeat teams”.
India and the West Indies, two teams versed with each others’ strengths and weaknesses, take on each other at the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) Ground in Perth.
The last time these two teams battled it out in a World Cup match was in 2011, when India emerged victorious.
