Sammy: Windies ready to entertain


Darren Sammy said West Indies are ready to put on another show against South Africa on Friday as they go in search of a victory which would put them through to the World Twenty20 semi-finals.

Chris Gayle's scintillating century inspired the Windies to a win over England in their first game of the tournament and they followed that up by seeing off Sri Lanka.

A third win against South Africa in Nagpur will guarantee their place in the last four with a game to spare and strike a blow to the Proteas' hopes of qualifying from Group 1.

Windies captain Sammy expects his side to entertain once again as they target a second World T20 title.

The all-rounder said: "I've said it many times, once we do what we do well, we are a force to reckon with. We are very destructive. We've doing just the basic things well.

"Someone at the top of the order has carried their bat throughout. We've also being bowling well.

"On a pitch in Mumbai where the average score on that day was probably 200, we restricted the team [England] to 180. In Bangalore too we bowled really well.

"We've being doing the basics right and in T20 for us it is about entertaining and keeping it simple.

"We have really gelled well as a team. We are aiming to do well against South Africa."
