West Indies T20 cricket captain Darren Sammy on Tuesday expressed his delight at the decision of the St. Lucia government to re-name the Beausejour Cricket ground, after him following the exploits of the regional team in the just concluded T20 World Cup in India.

Sammy, along with fellow St. Lucian, Johnson Charles, returned a hero’s welcome at the Hewanorra International Airport, where they were greeted by Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony and other St. Lucians.

“Big time reception, home coming,” Charles said in a video posted on Facebook, while Sammy said Prime Minister Anthony had announced that the island’s premier cricketing ground will now be known as the “Darren Sammy National Cricket stadium.”

The stadium which has a 15,000 seating capacity was completed in 2002 and had hosted domestic matches for the Windward Islands cricket team.
