Sammy: Final hurdle for us, we believe in ourselves

Darren Sammy did not exude the groovy note that he did in the dance video with Dwayne Bravo, which went viral. The West Indies skipper allowed himself the luxury of the rarest of smiles, while seriously speaking about his team’s prospects ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 final.

"I still don’t think people give us a chance. We see ourselves as David and we will play like David, be smart about it, believe in ourselves and if we do these things, we are going to lift the cup."   -  AP

Darren Sammy did not exude the groovy note that he did in the dance video with Dwayne Bravo, which went viral. The West Indies skipper allowed himself the luxury of the rarest of smiles, while seriously speaking about his team’s prospects ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 final.

Excerpts:

Brawny batting

We know the power we have. Lendl Simmons, Andre Russell and Johnson Charles displayed that type of boundary hitting against India but this is another match. We will focus on England but if we do what the West Indies can do best, we will always be destructive.

Last hurrah

We are aware that it could be the last for a few key players and that brought us closer. It is a six-step process to the Cup and we have taken five steps. We took a big one against India. We are left with one step and we believe in each other. We think about ourselves lifting that cup. But we have a game to play and England is a good side.

David vs Goliath?

>I still don’t think people give us a chance. We see ourselves as David and we will play like David, be smart about it, believe in ourselves and if we do these things, we are going to lift the cup.
