Sammy promises to entertain

January 29, 2013 14:03:15 UK

Darren Sammy hopes West Indies can produce a winning formula that is appealing on the eye as they seek to worsen Australia's recent limited-overs run.

West Indies play five one-day matches and a one-off Twenty20 on the back of the Aussies' clawing a draw in 50-over contests and losing both 20-over matches to Sri Lanka in the past fortnight.
"We bring the flair: the celebrations and stroke-play," said Windies captain Sammy, whose team held Australia in both formats in the Caribbean last year. "Hopefully we can entertain the crowd and be successful doing that.

"We have been playing our domestic T20, it is a different format but we are match-ready."

Hopefully we can entertain the crowd and be successful doing that.

Although they lost their only warm-up match, against a Prime Minister's XI in Canberra, the Windies will be strengthened by the inclusion of Chris Gayle and Kemar Roach for the opening game of the series in Perth on Friday.

That pair featured in the recent Big Bash League and have reported back their observations on the new-look Australia team.

"We have been watching and we have our analyst who picks things up too," Sammy added. "Last series we played them in the Caribbean the five match series ended up 2-2 and in the Twenty20 it was one apiece.

"So there is a sense of unfinished business for us. I expect it to be a hotly-contested series. The most important thing for us is the confidence the team has got from the World Twenty20 - now we feel we are not just here to compete but to go out and win games."

West Indies are 2.50 to win the first one-day international on Friday while Australia can be backed at 1.53 to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
