IND vs WI: “Remember Who Wins the International Tournaments” – Daren Sammy’s Cheeky Dig at Team India. National Tournaments: Daren Sammy’s Cheeky Dig at Team India

West Indies head coach Daren Sammy, while praising the Indian system for consistently producing talented youngsters, also criticized Team India for its failures in ICC competitions in recent years.

Team India has not won the T20 World Cup since 2007 while their last victory in the 50-over World Cup came in 2011. Their last ICC trophy came in 2013 when they won the Champions Trophy. All three wins were achieved by MS Dhoni as captain. Since then, India has consistently underperformed in ICC competitions. During the same period, the West Indies have won two T20 World Cups, both under the leadership of Daren Sammy.

The former West Indies captain spoke about India’s failure to win global competitions in recent years while also talking about some young players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill. Daren Sammy praised Jaiswal, who made his Test and T20I debut in the ongoing tour of the West Indies. Jaiswal scored an impressive century on his Test debut but was only out by 1 on his T20I debut earlier this week.

“When you see the players they have been able to produce, Hardik Pandya, (Yashasvi) Jaiswal, all the guys they have produced over the years, but you also have to think about who wins the international tournaments.” Daren Sammy told journalist Vimal Kumar.

“As I said, Jaiswal, Shubman Gill and Sanju Samson, who didn’t play, played. Hardik Pandya, who is young but experienced in the team. Again, it speaks to the system they have that keeps producing these young people.

“Jaiswal has 1,800 runs in first-class cricket in nine games, nine hundreds, and then he comes to Dominica in his debut game and it looks like he belongs at international level.” That comes from the standard of first-class -Cricket in India, enabling youngsters to be ready for international cricket upon arrival.” he added.

Daren Sammy looks at series victory:

Meanwhile, Daren Sammy has the opportunity to lead West Indies to a famous series win over Team India. The West Indies have not beaten India in a series of two or more matches in any format since 2016. They currently lead the ongoing five-match T20I series 2-1 and need to win one of the remaining games to win the series.

It will be a huge confidence boost for the West Indies team ahead of next year’s T20 World Cup. West Indies will co-host the major event with the United States of America. The fourth T20I is scheduled to be played on August 12.
