Darren Sammy wants to return to international cricket
Former captain Darren Sammy, who has won the World Twenty20 twice for the West Indies, has been out of the squad since India won the World Twenty20 in 2016. Although not in the team, Sammy has not yet announced his retirement. That is why Darren Sammy wants to return to international cricket.
The former captain has not played for the national team since winning the T20 World Cup in 2016. Although he did not play for the national team, he is playing for the World XI in 2018 as well as playing various franchise-based T20 tournaments. He regularly plays in the Caribbean Premier League and PSL.
All sports have been closed since mid-March due to Corona. So the cricketers have spent the last five months sitting at home. Sammy is thinking about his career in his spare time. He has come to the conclusion that the selectors want to return to international cricket in the T20 format. He thinks that the doors of the national team have not been closed for him yet.
“I’ve thought about a lot in the last few months. Those who were trapped in the lockdown did injustice to themselves if they did not think about themselves. “I want to do well in the Caribbean Premier League and bring good results to my team St. Lucia.”
He added, ‘My thoughts this year are to do well in the CPL. If we can do better, then maybe some more things will peek out. I’m not retired yet. And the doors of the national team were not closed. If I can make it to the play-offs for St. Lucia and if my performance is good, then the selectors will definitely think of me. ‘
He has played 36 Tests, 127 ODIs and 8 T20I matches for the Caribbean. He has scored 1323 runs in 36 Tests, 181 runs in 127 ODIs and 57 runs in 6 T20s. He also took 64, 71 and 44 wickets in Tests, ODIs and T20s.
