MIRPUR: West Indies captain Darren Sammy wasn’t amused when he heard that Suresh Raina has dubbed his batsmen as “six hitters” and dared the Indian bowlers to stop them from hitting the maximums when they clash in the World T20 here today.
“We don’t care much about what Raina thinks. If he thinks we are only six hitters, then stop us from hitting sixes,” Sammy replied when asked about his batsmen inability to rotate strike against spinners.
As usual, the affable West Indies skipper seemed to be in good mood as he answered the questions with a bit of fun and a lot of seriousness.
What’s there on Chris Gayle’s mind, asked a scribe. “I am not Jesus Christ! I don’t know what’s going on in his mind,” he laughed and replied.
Then he got serious. “But I know he (Gayle) is really pumped up to play here. Whenever he is playing for the West Indies, he is very pumped up. And today’s game everyone will be pumped up.”
