The 32-year-old posted an emotional video on his Facebook page where he said his six-year spell in charge had ended. Sammy also said he had been dropped from the squad.

"I got a call yesterday, it was probably 30 seconds, from the chairman of selectors telling me that they’ve reviewed the captaincy of the Twenty20 team and I won’t be captain anymore and that my performances have not merited selection in the squad,” Sammy said in the video.
