Brotherhood in Windies camp
Mohali, India – The West Indies team has formed a strong brotherhood as they continue their campaign at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.
Speaking to the media on Thursday, skipper Darren Sammy outlined that all members of the team were supporting each other and working extremely well together as they prepare to face Ireland in their fourth Group B match at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium on Friday.
It will be the first day match for the Windies. First ball is 9.30 am (12 midnight Eastern Caribbean Time/11 pm Thursday Jamaica Time).
“The one good thing about West Indies as a team is that we have a lot of camaraderie. We always fight for each other. Now we are a long, long away from home so we are each other’s family,” said Sammy.
“The last few days there have been ups and downs but we have stuck together as a team. We have been managing it quite well. Everyone is fully focussed on what is required and we know the reason why we are here.”
Sammy added: “The situation which occurred in Bangladesh is now behind us. It was quite an unfortunate thing to happen but we are over that and the guys are geared up to face Ireland tomorrow.”
