Sammy sacked over Stars’ losing streak*

DARREN SAMMY has been sacked as captain of St Lucia Stars, paying the price for the franchise’s woeful start to the Caribbean Premier League.
Stars have lost their first six matches of the campaign to be bottom of the six-team table, with virtually no chance of making the playoffs.
Sammy, who has led the St Lucia franchise from its inception, has been replaced by Australian all-rounder Shane Watson.
“After six successive defeats in the 2017 season, the time is right to make a switch in leadership and incorporate some fresh thinking as the team completes this season and builds for 2018,” a franchise statement said Thursday.
“The Stars management would like to take this opportunity to thank Darren Sammy for his contribution as captain this season and throughout the last four editions of Hero CPL.”
