Lack of partnerships cost West Indies – Sammy

Darren Sammy has said his team’s failure to build on a 132-run fourth-wicket stand between Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo with another substantial partnership was what cost West Indies the fifth game and the ODI series. Bangladesh succeeded where West Indies failed, Sammy said, and that was the difference between the teams.

“We had a good partnership but we crumbled again,” Sammy said. “We didn’t capitalise on the Bravo-Pollard partnership. We then got early wickets but the difference in the game was the Mominul [Haque]-Nasir [Hossain] partnership. It came after the captain [Mushfiqur Rahim] and Mahmudullah had a big partnership.

“We also didn’t take our catches today. I dropped a crucial catch before that partnership developed. I’m a guy who believes everything happens for a reason, and I think they deserved to win the series.” Read more
