Bio

Allrounder Darren Sammy broke into the West Indies team for the first time in July 2004, but his debut against New Zealand proved somewhat of a false start, with the match abandoned due to wet weather without a ball being bowled.

His second chance came two months later against Bangladesh, when he took 1-19.

Since then, Sammy has played more than 100 ODIs for West Indies, which seven fifties including a high score of 84 against Australia in 2012.

He has also collected more than 70 wickets with his medium-fast bowling, including 4-26 in 2010.

After playing seven matches during the 2011 Cricket World Cup, where he picked up two three-wicket hauls, Sammy returns for a second crack at the tournament in 2015.

Sammy also captained West Indies to the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 victory against Sri Lanka, their first major trophy for 8 years.

The 200cm powerhouse from the West Indies will also feature for the Hobart Hurricanes in BBL|04. 

A handy lower order batsman and medium pace bowler, Sammy has a strike rate above 130 in both domestic and international T20s paired with over 150 wickets. 

Expect big sixes and big scores from a proven performer.
