The recent disappointing performances of the West Indies Cricket team, have not fazed head coach Daren Sammy. The Men in Maroon have had an underwhelming start to the World Cup Qualifiers, failing to get past the Netherlands and Zimbabwe over the last few games. In spite of this fact, Sammy is adamant that sometimes, it takes this level of failure to truly rebound.
“I’m a very positive thinker and I understand the journey that I have to take with this team,” Sammy said. “Sometimes you’ve got to reach rock bottom to come back” he added.
While confident in his positive approach, the St. Lucian did not belittle the seriousness of the situation. He noted that the performances showcased greater work that needed to be done by the players and administration.
“I understand the challenges ahead, and I also understand that things won’t change overnight. It’s a true reflection of where our cricket is at the moment and we have a lot of work to do.”
The Windies can still mathematically qualify for the World Cup, but they will require other results to go their way in order to do so. If the team fails to qualify, this will be the second consecutive ICC tournament, without the Caribbean side.
