Darren Sammy eyes India scalp at World Cup

West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy admits that his side must bring their "A-game" if they are to become the first side to beat India at the World Cup on Friday.

West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy has admitted that his side will need their "A-game" to halt India's unbeaten start to the Cricket World Cup.

India have won all three of their outings in Australia and New Zealand so far and have been tipped by some as favourites to clinch the title.

West Indies provide the next opponents at The WACA on Friday and, as one of three teams on four points in Pool B, Sammy is keen to topple the group leaders in order to strengthen their own hopes of progressing to the quarter-finals.

"India are obviously playing really well at the moment, on top of the group," Sammy is quoted as saying by PA.

"We enjoy playing against them and have a good rapport with them. But it's a crucial match for us, so we have to bring out our A-game in another World Cup match."

It was confirmed earlier today that Sammy would join up with the Nottinghamshire Outlaws during this summer's T20 Blast.
