Saint Lucia Stars captain Darren Sammy confirmed via his Instagram account on August 17 that he has been sacked.
The Saint Lucia Stars failed to shine during the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) tournament consecutively losing their opening six (6) matches which included five home games at the recently renamed Darren Sammy Cricket Ground.
Unconfirmed reports suggest Shane Watson will take over for the remaining Stars CPL matches.
Sammy, a former West Indies Twenty20 captain, scored the fastest half century of the 2017 CPL tournament and has scored the second most runs for the Stars.
Darren Sammy averaged 24 runs in the Stars first 6 matches and has taken 1 wicket in 6.5 overs with a bowling economy of 11.70 runs per over.
