The West Indies cricketers took the field on day one of the second Test against India at the Eden Gardens here Monday wearing black armbands in memory of the victims of an accident in St. Lucia.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy, during his match-eve media meet Sunday, expressed his condolences to the families of the 17 people killed when a bus fell off a cliff into the ocean Thursday in his country, the eastern Caribbean island of St Lucia.
Sammy said it was the most tragic accident in the history of the island.
"My heart goes out to the (Duggard) community and families in this tragic time," said Sammy, who is a member of the same community.
The bus driver was a friend of Sammy's father.
