PREVIEW: WI seek solid start in USA

FORT LAUNDERDALE, Florida, CMC – Following their recent tough tour of England, West Indies will seek to brighten their summer when they face New Zealand in the first Digicel Twenty20 International of a two-match series starting on Saturday.

They were dogged throughout the tour by unfriendly wet, frosty early spring weather but will exchange this for sunny Caribbean-like temperatures for the weekend’s doubleheader at Broward County Park Stadium at Lauderhill.

Windies say "hello" to Florida

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – In what’s being hailed as the first sanctioned cricket matches in the United States, teams from the West Indies and New Zealand will face off in south Florida this weekend.

“It’s always good to be part of history,” said Darren Sammy, captain of the West Indies team. “What will be better for us is if we can win these two games here and create our own history.”

Narine still full of confidence

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, CMC – Off-spinner Sunil Narine says his confidence has not been dented following a disappointing tour of England earlier this month.

The Indian Premier League star entered the four-match limited overs series with a huge reputation but made little impact as West Indies failed to win a single match, in a miserable outing.

“It’s a matter of confidence and I’m feeling quite confident as we get ready for the weekend,” said the 24-year-old.

West Indies at home in Florida

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Richie Richardson said he believes cricket in the United States could be in for “something special” this weekend, when West Indies face New Zealand in the two Digicel Twenty20 Internationals here.

Permaul bowls and bats Windies to win

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, CMC – A precious, unbroken 35-run ninth wicket stand between captain Veerasammy Permaul and tail-ender Nikita Miller pulled West Indies A out of a hole and fired them to a tense two-wicket win over India A in the first Digicel one-dayer on Wednesday.

Chasing 191 for victory at the National Stadium, West Indies were languishing at 158 for eight before Permaul and Miller combined to steer the hosts to 193 without further loss, with three balls remaining in the innings.
