MUMBAI, India (CMC) — West Indies allrounder Darren Sammy says the absence of talismanic opener Chris Gayle should not jolt the confidence of the Caribbean side as they prepare to battle India in a five-match One-Day International (ODI) series.

Gayle, who has been struggling with a lower-back injury and had missed the final Test against Bangladesh last month, will miss the limited-overs leg of the India tour as well.

The first ODI takes place in Kochi on Wednesday.

BASSETERRE, St Kitts — An excellent opening partnership between Lendl Simmons and Martin Guptill set up a thumping victory for the Guyana Amazon Warriors as they booked their place in the Limacol Caribbean Premier League final with ease at Warner Park yesterday.

Both openers reached half- centuries as defending champions, the Jamaica Tallawahs, were eliminated from the tournament. Both knocks were near chanceless efforts as they became the first side to win a CPL match by 10 wickets.
