SAMMY HAPPY WITH PREPARATIONS FOR SRI LANKA TOUR
Wednesday 3rd November 2010

West Indies Captain Darren Sammy has lauded his team-mates for their professional approach and commitment during the ongoing camp at the 3Ws Oval of the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies.

Speaking on Tuesday after a full work-out, Sammy said he was pleased with the way the players have all stepped up during the camp as they prepare for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka. The camp also includes members of the West Indies A Team, preparing for the upcoming seven-match series against Pakistan A Team in the Caribbean.

“The players have been working hard and doing all that has been asked of them. We had two full sessions on Sunday and Monday and another intense session today. Everyone is enjoying what they are doing and we are eagerly looking forward to the tour. As I said before, this tour of Sri Lanka will not be an easy one, so we must make sure we are fully prepared when we leave the Caribbean later this week,” the 26-year-old said.

“The tour is going to be a major challenge, there is no doubt about that, and that is why it has been so pleasing to see everyone buckling down and doing the hard work here in the camp. We are all aware of the task ahead. We have bonded well as a team and everyone is on the same page going forward.”

Sammy added: “We have been working hard and we are enjoying it. It is good that everyone is enjoying what they are doing and taking responsibility for their individual game. We have been seeing smiling faces and we are all pulling together in the same direction.”
