Windies must remain ‘hungry’, urges Sammy

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Captain Darren Sammy has cautioned against complacency as West Indies prepare to face Bangladesh in a Test and One-Day Series they are expected to win easily.

West Indies were scheduled to leave here Saturday for Dhaka where they contest two Tests and five One-Dayers against the lowly ranked Bangladeshis, between November 8 and December 10. They also play a one-off Twenty20 International.

Bangladesh prop up the nine-nation Test rankings where West Indies lie seventh and are also ninth of 13 teams in the one-day tables, with the Windies against seventh.

“We’ve just got to stay hungry. We can’t keep thinking because we won the T20 World Cup that we’ve turned the corner. We’ve still got to put in the hard work and all the stuff coach (Ottis) Gibson has been trying to implement since he came on board,” Sammy told reporters here.

“We’ve got to keep working hard. Bangladesh in Bangladesh is always a difficult place for us or for any team. We expect to beat them so we’ve got to keep the momentum and do the things we’ve doing for the last six months.”

Last year on the subcontinent, West Indies beat Bangladesh 1-0 in a two-Test series and also took the three-match One-Day Series 2-1.
