Sammy: “Firstly, I want to thank the almighty. Andre Fletcher kept praying. I was serious hitting from Brathwaite. I said before that we have 15 match winners in the side. To see him play like that and win the world cup was amazing. We started our journey. We were wondering if we would be part of this tournament. A lot of things were happening. We were disrespected by our board. To come out and play this sort of cricket in front of passionate fans was amazing. The trouble our manager got into to get us into this uniform was just beyond words. This win is for the people in the Caribbean. Everybody is the West Indies are champions.”
