ICC World Twenty20: West Indian skipper Darren Sammy warns India ahead of 2nd semi-final

New Delhi: In his own sweet style, West Indies T20I skipper warned Mahendra Singh Dhoni & Co ahead of their semi-final match of the ICC World Twenty20.

First, he accepted that India are favourites going into the match and then backed his side to win the crucial match against against all odds.

"I think it is 80-20 to India, so it feels like David vs Goliath contest but people tend to forget David won the fight, so it's something similar to that.

"We haven't played the perfect game yet. We are stressing on rotation of strike. It is clear that we are a big boundary -hitting team. We look at the dot-ball percentage, probably it is 40-50 per cent for us, and we could improve on that. So far, we have bowled really well in the tournament and on a few occasions, one batsman has taken responsibility," Sammy was quoted as saying by PTI.

The all-rounder gave respect to Indian premier batsman, Virat Kohli, but at the same time placed Chris Gayle above all.

"...Have you ever heard of Chris Gayle?" he asked, adding "There's no taking away from Virat, he's a very good player, but like I've said in my press conferences, we tend to focus on what we could do in our dressing room.”
