Samuels ready to step-up for Windies

Colombo, Sri Lanka – Marlon Samuels believes he will have a key role to play in the West Indies team in the upcoming ICC World T20 tournament. The top-order batsman, who also bowls clever off-spin, is expected to be called upon with both bat and ball in the coming weeks as the Windies look to win the title for the first time.

“My role will be in every department – batting, bowling and fielding. I’m in good form with the bat. I did well in England and continued on against New Zealand. I have also been working hard in the nets and I feel ready,” Samuels said.

Gibson: We will learn from defeat

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, CMC – Head Coach Ottis Gibson has downplayed West Indies’ loss to Sri Lanka in their opening warm-up game ahead of the World Twenty20 Championship starting here next week.

The Caribbean side could only muster 132 for six off their 20 overs and Sri Lanka easily chased down the target courtesy of unbeaten half-centuries from Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan.

Dottin sparks but WI lose by 10

NORTHAMPTON, England, CMC – Not even the return of World Number 1 allrounder Stafanie Taylor could save West Indies Women from a 10-run defeat to England Women in the third Twenty20 International here Thursday.

The prolific 21-year-old fell cheaply as the tourists, set a moderate 104 for victory, were bowled out for 93 off 19.2 overs at Wantage Road.

With the defeat, West Indies conceded the series as they now trail 0-3 in the five-match rubber following losses at Chester-le-Street and Old Trafford over the last week.
