“The team backs him (Sammy) 100 percent. He’s very down to earth, very approachable, keep the dressing room calm. There is no malice in our time. So whether Sammy is the captain or Chris is the captain, we all get along very well, respect each other and always have a smile on our face.”

He said that Sammy is playing the role that Kieron Pollard has been playing in the tournament.

“We missed someone like Kieron Pollard, who over the years has been that ‘Go-To’ person coming into the later stage of the game. So in Pollard’s absence, the coach mentioned that someone had to step up.

“Sammy has been working hard on his batting, he plays with a level of confidence which the team gives him. Most of the time, he comes in to bat when we have our backs against the wall and he delivers.

“He’s one of the most dangerous batters in this format, very strong guy and he’s our captain and leading from the front,” Bravo said.
