Beausejour Cricket Ground is now Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground
St. John's, ANTIGUA - The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said today that it congratulated West Indies Captain, Darren Sammy and opener, Johnson Charles for the honour their home country St. Lucia has bestowed on them.
The Beausejour Cricket Ground will now be the Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground and one of the stands will be named in Charles' honour. Charles is also due to receive a plot of land.
"Both are fitting tributes to the hard work and dedication of the players who just completed an exciting victory to win the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 Men's title," the WICB said in a release
Sammy was also captain of the 2012 team and makes the West Indies the only team to win this title twice.
"The honour is fitting and we salute the players," the WICB said.
The announcement was made at a "welcome reception" in St Lucia by Prime Minister, Kenny D. Anthony earlier this afternoon
