Profile

An accurate and hard-working medium-fast bowler and a hard-hitting lower order batsman, Sammy has emerged as a leader of men, charged with the task of overseeing the resurgence of the West Indies side. Unassuming and soft-spoken, the Windward Islands all-rounder has been nothing but self-assured and positive in giving direction to the regional squad. Taking over the captaincy for the tour of Sri Lanka in 2010, Sammy has managed to fashion a committed tightly knit side during his time in charge and has won the plaudits of many observers. In one of his first major assignment, he led West Indies to the quarter-finals of the ICC World Cup last year and then snatched a share of honours in a drawn two-Test series with Pakistan.Incidentally, it was Sammy’s five-wicket haul in the second innings that handed West Indies victory in the first Test in Georgetown. He then led the regional side to encouraging performances against India in the Caribbean and on the subcontinent, and a series win away to Bangladesh. More recently, a re-energised West Indies snatched a share of the honours in the one-day and Twenty20 series against Australia. Along the way, Sammy has held in his own with the ball and has four five-wicket haul in Tests including a best of seven for 66 on debut in Manchester five years ago. He is no mug with the bat either as he proved with a shot-filled half-centuries that rattled the Australians recently.
