Sammy’s our Samson
Hilary Beckles, writing in The Nation, reasons why Darren Sammy is the right man to lead West Indies. He says Sammy has the aura of a dignified captain and is protecting West Indies cricket from stagnation.
He took over the reins and continued with the project of rebuilding the image of the captaincy, restoring the values of leadership, and reconnecting to the heart and mind of West Indies cricket. The madness was arrested and put away.
Sammy the Samson has not looked back. He is the mighty warrior for professionalism, ambassador for leadership, and the symbol of a West Indies strategic reaction to decline and despair; all evidence that a mind is at work in the affairs of West Indies cricket.
