Windies focussed on winning, says Sammy

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Darren Sammy’s steady medium-fast bowling put West Indies in control of the first Digicel Test against Australia, giving them a chance of forcing an outright victory.

Sammy was brilliant with the new ball in the opening session on the third day on Easter Monday holiday. His superb control on the off stump got rid of Ed Cowan (14) as he edged to ‘keeper Carlton Baugh, and then struck again with a similar delivery, as Dave Warner (42) was snapped up by Darren Bravo at second slip.
