Sammy still upbeat

West Indies captain Darren Sammy wants his side to raise their game at key moments during the remainder of the Pakistan series.
The Windies are currently 2-0 down in the five-match series with two defeats on the island of St Lucia and the sides now face each other twice in Barbados, with Sammy's men needing to win to keep the series alive.
The men from the Caribbean did not enjoy a successful World Cup and exited the tournament after a 10-wicket defeat to Shahid Afridi's men.
And the Asian giants have kept up their recent dominance over the Windies with an eight-wicket victory in match one followed by a seven-wicket victory in the second ODI.
Pakistan played well at the World Cup and look to be returning to some decent form but Sammy feels that his men could still have a say in proceedings if they can raise their game at vital times to prolong the series as a contest.
"There were moments when things could have gone either way, but we didn't make it happen," he said. "We have to find a way to win those tight situations. We have to win in Barbados to stay alive in the series, so we have to grab our chances."
