Sammy sending message for Windies to avoid distraction

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. That’s the message here. Ideally we’d like everything to be smooth sailing but that’s not the case for us. So we’re just going to do what we can.”

Here’s the Windies’ group schedule:

16 March
West Indies vs. England

21 March

West Indies vs. Sri Lanka

27 March
West Indies vs. South Africa

30 March
West Indies vs. TBD
