Sammy pulls out of BPL

Bridgetown, Barbados, CMC -- Darren Sammy said commitments to Windward Islands and West Indies have forced him to opt out of the Bangladesh Twenty20 Premier League next month. The allrounder had his options picked up for US $55,000 in the BPL auction on Thursday by the Sylhet Royals.

He said, however, that he informed the franchise yesterday that he would have to turn down their offer due to clashing schedules with regional and West Indies matches.
