Sammy - We will keep believing

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – West Indies captain Darren Sammy says Wednesday’s three-wicket loss to Australia in the opening Test here will not damage his side’s growing self confidence and has urged his troops not to despair, despite the hugely disappointing result.

Windies focussed on winning, says Sammy
