Darren Sammy, the West Indies captain, was happy to see his inexperienced side settle for a 0-0 draw against Sri Lanka despite bad weather hampering the three-Test series.

“When we left, we said we will settle for a draw or a win. Despite the weather, which has been totally out of our control, the one Test match where we had five days of cricket (at Galle) we basically dominated,” Sammy said.

“We all like to see cricket being played. When we left, everyone said 15 days of good competitive Test cricket. But that was not to be due to the weather. It can be frustrating. Sometimes you are on and off. You prepare yourself mentally then you know you have to be focused again. But as professionals, you do a job whenever you are called up…”

“The way we went out and played one of the top three sides it was good coming down to Sri Lanka and doing well. When I left home, we knew it was going to be a tough series. But the players have made my job very easy…”

“The cricket we played there were a lot of positives but there is still a lot of room for improvements. I am learning to do my job efficiently and I would like to see personal improvements.”

“Sri Lanka is coming after a series win in Australia for the first time. It’s another opportunity for us to show what we are capable of doing.”
