New Delhi: West Indies captain Darren Sammy on Wednesday said he was happy with the performance of his young team despite losing the first Test against India.
"It was a damn good display by our team here. We were aware how tough it is to beat India at home. We played some good cricket. Had we scored some more runs in the second innings it would have been a different ball game," said Sammy after his team went down by five-wickets at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.
Asked if his team hoped to pull off an unlikely win when Fidel Edwards removed Rahul Dravid early in the morning session, Sammy said: "We always had hope. Cricket is a game of shifting fortunes and glorious uncertainties. So getting the wicket early gave us some hope. But (VVS) Laxman and Sachin (Tendulkar) took the game away from us."
