West Indies cricket captain Darren Sammy has described wily off-spinner Sunil Narine of Trinidad & Tobago as the best bowler in the Caribbean at the moment. Sammy was speaking after narine destroyed the Windward Islands with a match haul of 10 wickets for 127 runs, to set up T&T for their fourth round Regional Four-Day match last month.
