Bridgetown, Barbados: New Barbados captain Kirk Edwards has described his beleaguered West Indies skipper Darren Sammy as a "fighting cricketer who gives his all".
Edwards, one of the West Indies batting successes on the recent Test tours to Bangladesh and India where the side had mixed fortunes, said Sammy needed as much support as possible.
"Sammy is a fighter. He is a cricketer that everybody has a lot of negatives to say. He is always under pressure but I kind of admire the guy for the fact that he still goes out there and gives his all," Edwards told reporter here at the annual Barbados Cricket Association Christmas luncheon Thursday.
