Darren Sammy said ( about Nicholas Pooran ) : “Most of the guys have not been playing for a while. To come here on difficult tracks, to adjust as quickly as possible has proven difficult but you can’t not question the way we have managed to play spin. That’s a thing that has affected us at the top and at the highest level as well. A lot of dot ball percentage has been registered as well in this tournament. I would say again, guys have been on a lay-off. You look at guys who have been scoring runs, like a Nicholas Pooran, it’s guys who have been accustomed of playing on the spin wickets like in Trinidad and Guyana. With that said, we have got to dig deeper and come up with a way to play” External link

I am probably the only player who is playing with the black lives matter logo on the back of my shirt in the CPL so it's important for me," "Whatever is happening in the world and especially in America for black people who have been oppressed for so many years, it is important for me as an athlete, as a leader to show my solidarity and stand against such social and systemic oppression on people of colour," External link

Being at home confined, not being able to practice and train, and now to be able to showcase our talent for a cause is an exciting prospect. What I see from us coming here is that (there's) young men just eager to showcase their talent. Yes, there are no superstars but the way we have gelled together off the field it could play a big part. I am confident that we could do much better than in previous seasons," "The bio-secure bubble is our safe haven and adhering to the safety protocols means showing respect to your teammates and opponents. It is important to have cricket but in the safest way possible. The fact that cricket is being played it is a plus. The authorities are taking safety measures to ensure that we all play in a safe environment," External link

Obviously guys are putting up their hands wit performances. We always play to win cricket matches but obviously being in the joint top of table is a bonus and it is a good position to be for a change,” External link

That’s a thing that has affected us at the top and at the highest level as well. A lot of dot ball percentage has been registered as well in this tournament. I would say again, guys have been on a lay-off.

What I see from us coming here is that (there's) young men just eager to showcase their talent. Yes, there are no superstars but the way we have gelled together off the field it could play a big part. I am confident that we could do much better than in previous seasons," "The bio-secure bubble is our safe haven and adhering to the safety protocols means showing respect to your teammates and opponents.
