One day closer to the start of the main draw for the ICC World Twenty20 Championship, West Indies Captain Darren Sammy says he’s stressing focus to his team — especially the younger players.
“The message is cricket. Once you step out on the cricket field you shouldn’t be worried about contracts and other stuff,” Sammy said during a press conference leading up to the tournament’s main draw. “You focus on your performance, the team’s performance and what you could do to help your team and make your country proud.
