Sammy backed to come good

Darren SammyGlamorgan coach Toby Radford is confident that Darren Sammy will find his form in the Natwest T20 Blast during the remainder of his time with the club (Glamorgan 12/1 Tournament Outright).

The West Indies star penned a short-term deal with the Welsh outfit to play in a number of 20-over games during this season’s revamped competition.

He began well by hitting the winning runs off the final ball against Sussex but has made little impact in the subsequent two matches.

The 30-year-old made only three from eight deliveries as Glamorgan beat Somerset by seven runs before being hammered for 53 runs from his four overs against Gloucestershire in a rain-ruined no-result at Bristol.

It appears as though the all-rounder has struggled to adapt to English conditions, having recently starred in the Indian Premier League, but he will get another chance on Friday as Kent arrive in Cardiff for the latest round of T20 matches (Glamorgan & Kent 10/11 Match Prices).

And Radford is adamant that the St Lucia-born ace will show his true colours in the coming games and start to dispatch the ball to all parts.

“Darren is a world-class player and has done it for the West Indies when leading them to a T20 World Cup and performed all around the world,” he said.

“I have no doubt in a couple of these matches he is going to lose a couple of balls for us.”

Glamorgan have made a decent start to this summer’s competition and currently sit in third place in the South Group standings, with seven points from five games played.

But the Spitfires are just one point and one place behind and it looks set to be another thrilling encounter in the Welsh capital on Friday evening.
