CRICKET: Sammy signs new two-year deal with Digicel

West Indies Test and Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy, has signed a new two year deal with regional telecommunications provider Digicel.



Part of the new contract, covering 2013-2015, includes the continued use of the top St Lucian cricketer in promotional and marketing activities.



Digicel will also provide monetary assistance to Sammy and will supply him with a number of gifts including the latest handsets and call credit.



Sammy made history by becoming the first St Lucian to be selected on the West Indies team.



He was later selected to captain the team at a critical period and his leadership is widely believed to have contributed to a resurgence of West Indies cricket.



Earlier this month Digicel announced that it was extending its sponsorship of the West Indies cricket team for another three years until September 2016.
