Daren Sammy added to CWI’s Board of Directors list

Former West Indies skipper Daren Sammy has been appointed as one of the three independent non-member directors of Cricket West Indies (CWI).

Sammy will soon join Trinidadian Attorney Debra Coryat-Patton and Jamaican Surgeon and University Administrator Dr. Akshai Mansingh, who were re-commissioned to the post for serving a second term.

Each of them will hold the position for the next two years.

The two time T20I World Cup-winning captain expressed his gratitude after getting the opportunity to serve his country off the field.

“It is an honour to be appointed as a CWI Director; this is another great opportunity for me to give my best to West Indies cricket in a new way, off the field,” Sammy said in an official press release on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old further added that he was looking forward to starting his tenure in the new position and thanked the CWI for giving him a chance.

“All my local, regional and international experiences have prepared me to make a significant ongoing impact in West Indies cricket. I am excited and thankful for the chance to serve and look forward to giving back to the sport and region that I love so much,” Sammy divulged.

Talking about Sammy’s new assignment, CWI president Ricky Skerritt enunciated that he was exalted to welcome the former all-rounder who would help shape new ideas.

“I am delighted to welcome Daren Sammy as an independent, non-member Director whose role will be to ensure that all the right questions are being asked while contributing to the shaping of new ideas and solutions,” Skerritt stated.

The 65-year-old enunciated that Sammy’s experience as a cricketer would contribute much in adding a modern-day perspective to the Board’s discussions.

“Darren’s fairly recent experience as a two-time World Cup-winning captain will bring with him a much-needed modern-day cricketer’s perspective which should add valuable insights to Board discussions and decision-making,” he concluded.

Sammy is the first international cricketer from St. Lucia, and a stadium has also been named after him. He currently serves as the head coach of Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Peshawar Zalmi and a consultant for St. Lucia Zouks in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Meanwhile, the Windies would be playing five T20Is against South Africa after a 0-2 loss in Tests followed by hosting a series against Australia.

Twitter Reactions: Kane Williamson-led New Zealand clinches the maiden ICC World Test Championship

New Zealand defeated India in the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) final to win the coveted trophy. The pair of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor guided their side to chase down the target of 139 runs with eight wickets in hand.

While Williamson reached his half-century (52 no), Taylor remained unbeaten on 47 runs. For India, only Ravichandran Ashwin managed to pick the wickets. Ashwin dismissed both the openers Tom Latham (9) and Devon Conway (19) to finish the WTC 2019-21 cycle as the highest wicket-taker.

Earlier, on the final day, New Zealand bowlers displayed wonderful bowling to bundle out India in their second innings for 170 runs. The likes of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara couldn’t contribute enough with the bat and failed to cross the score of 20 runs. While Kohli made 13, Pujara and Rahane were dismissed at 15.

The Kiwi bowling attack led by Tim Southee dominated the proceedings. Southee bagged a four-wicket haul for 48 runs in 19 overs, including 4 maidens. Similarly, Trent Boult claimed three scalps. All-rounder Kyle Jamieson, who picked up a fifer in the first innings, dismissed two Indian batters, and Neil Wagner earned the remaining one scalp.

Rishabh Pant was the highest run-scorer for India in their second innings. The wicketkeeper-batsman made 41 runs off 88 deliveries, including four boundaries.
