The office of Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and opposition leader Allen Chastanet have hailed Daren Sammy on his appointment as Head Coach of the West Indies cricket team.

“You did Saint Lucia proud as a player and captain who guided Windies Cricket to two T20I championships. Saint Lucia stands proudly behind Daren Sammy in his new role as Head Coach of the West Indies men’s squad,” the OPM statement said.

“This is a well-deserved achievement for a cricketer who has brought so much pride and success to the West Indies team over the years,” Chastanet wrote on Facebook.

According to the former Saint Lucia Prime Minister, Daren Sammy’s love for West Indies Cricket is undeniable.

“As a two-time T20 World Cup winning captain, Sammy’s leadership skills and experience will be invaluable to the team. I wish him all the best as he takes on this new role, and I look forward to seeing the West Indies team thrive under his guidance,” Chastanet said.

On Friday, Cricket West Indies (CWI) announced Sammy’s appointment as Head Coach for the white ball One Day International (ODI) and T20 International (T20I) Teams.

The 39-year-old cricketer acknowledged that the role would be challenging.

  1. St.Lucia Should have been on the top in Sports .Certain Ministers way back who never believed in Sports never gave a Damm about Sports men and Women in St.Lucia .St Lucians have to give thanks and praises to Sir Julian Hunte and Hon.Earnest Hilaire for Standing behind Darren Sammy .There’s a so called Cricketer who Voted against Sir.Julian Hunte .The West Indies Cricket Board will never support that St.Lucian so called Cricketer.

  2. Does everything have to take on a partisan slant. If you want to talk politics and praise politicians for their forward thinking, although there was no continuity as remains the case today, you should start with Romanus Lansiquot. Note I said there has been no continuity and may I add too much lip-service and not enough action. Congratulations to Sammy on this glorious achievement.

  3. @idi amin i remember when we won the last T20 and sammy gave a speech and mentioned how MR hunte helped him alot unlike some person on the board and after Sammy gave that speech the basically fired him as captain of the west indies. Who was that guy again?
