“The Almighty wants them to win a World Cup and leave on a high”
West Indies captain Darren Sammy has announced that he believes God wants Sri Lanka to win the World Twenty20 after they beat his side in a rain-affected semi-final.
Sammy added that winning the final would be a perfect way for Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene to end their Twenty20 careers.
“Today, there were two gentlemen (Sangakkara and Jayawardene) who gave a lot not only to Sri Lankan cricket but to cricket as a whole,” he said. “May be the Almighty wants them to win a World Cup and leave on a high. Probably, God wants them to win a World Cup and that’s why He put his hand in this so that they get another match.”
Sammy also vowed to bounce back harder and stronger during the 2016 World Twenty20.
“We will obviously come back stronger in 2016 and have another shot at the Cup,” he said. “Sri Lanka have played better cricket and have deservingly reached the final.”
