Darren Sammy, one of Saint Lucia’s most prolific international sport stars, will join the Windies Ambassador Programme to lend his support to the Windies Women for the upcoming ICC Women’s World T20.
Sammy, captain of the winning Windies Teams for the 2012 and 2016 World Twenty20 Championships has confirmed his participation and will make appearances as part of the campaign to promote the tournament.
Sammy said “It is an honour and a huge pleasure to join the team for the ICC Women’s World T20. This is going to be a great event for our region and for our women, who have for generations helped to build our communities here in St. Lucia and across the West Indies. In doing so, they have made an outstanding contribution to our cricket.”
The Darren Sammy Stadium in Saint Lucia is one of the three locations to be used during the event and Sammy is scheduled to be on location to meet and greet fans and players on match days.
The ICC Women’s World T20, the first stand-alone event of its kind is scheduled for November 9 – 24 and will also be at the Providence Ground, Guyana and the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua.
