Sammy blasts Nicholas for 'no brains' jab

Former Hampshire cricketer and columnist Mark Nicholas recently wrote about the West Indies: “Short of brains but have IPL history in their ranks.” Never the one to hide his emotions, the West Indies skipper Darren Sammy lashed out at the remark. “How could you describe people with no brains? Even animals have brains. That comment really set us off. You have seen me talking about it. It’s really emotional (coming as it did from) somebody who I respect, and have a good rapport with, to describe our team, which two years ago was defending world champion, as guys with no brains, that’s out of order. God don’t love the ugly, and we are very wonderful and beautifully made, that’s why we play exciting cricket,” Sammy said.
