Pacemen lead West Indies fightback at Trent Bridge

AFP, NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND

Saturday proved a memorable day, too, for West Indies captain Sammy as he completed a maiden Test century after being 88 not out overnight.

The all-rounder’s place in the side has been repeatedly called into question, most recently by West Indies great Michael Holding.

“I’m playing against the No. 1 team in the world and everybody wants to perform against the best,” Sammy said. “To do that [score a century] in this Test match with the bat, it feels good for somebody like me who has been under pressure from day one.”
