Sammy Should Be treated better…
Since the announcement of his sacking, Daren Sammy has taken up his usual humble posture, throwing his support behind the new captain revealed to St. Lucia by St. Lucia Sports Online as Bajan all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite. Hundreds of St. Lucians have expressed their disdain for the suspected reason behind Sammy’s ousting, or behind the manner in which such a loyal servant of the regional game was discarded.
For many, the best course of action may be to boycott the up-coming international test match between the West Indies and India scheduled to be played in St. Lucia next week. However, how much impact would this have considering how accustomed we’ve become to seeing empty seats at test matches in the region.
The best course of action may be to have the antonym occur, albeit at the entrance of the newly named Daren Sammy Cricket Grounds, or along the circumference of the world-renowned stadium. If we as St. Lucians do decide to go in the stadium, it should be to reveal to the world that we are a people who stand against unfairness. Perhaps St. Lucians can finally unite behind a cause that is apolitical and bring along their placards and at the very least send a message to the rest of the world that we stand behind our nations hero!!
