Former West Indies cricket captain Clive Lloyd says Darren Sammy should not have been relieved of his duties as skipper of the One Day International (ODI) side.


Sammy, who has been retained as captain of the Twenty20 and test teams, was removed as leader of the ODI squad and replaced with Dwayne Bravo who captained the side in the just ended ICC Champions Trophy.

Lloyd, who led West Indies during an era when they were world beaters, says the St Lucian all-rounder deserves to be retained as captain since he has performed well in the role.

However, Lloyd has expressed confidence in West Indies ability to win the tri-nation series starting today but says the bowlers need to show more consistency.

The West Indies, led by Bravo, start their campaign against Sri Lanka at Sabina Park before taking on India at the same venue on Sunday.

Lloyd says the tri-nation tournament will be good preparation for the Windies ahead of the ICC World Cup next year.
