St Lucia Stars Captain Daren Sammy has been sacked!
The news came late Thursday when the management of the St Lucia Stars announced the appointment of Shane Watson as team captain for the remainder of the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
The statement sought to explain the decision, noting that 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.
The Stars management stressed that Sammy remains an important part of the St Lucia Stars squad and his performances with both bat and ball will be vital for the rest of the 2017 tournament and in the future.
Meanwhile, Marlon Samuels has been appointed Vice Captain of the St Lucia Stars.
