The recent Sammy England controversy was an unfortunate one. Although it was controversial, it was a small move. While Allardyce was on a PS3 million a year deal with the FA, the sloppy pub talk and transfer speculation was not the cause of the controversy.

Darren Sammy has made a point of highlighting the Black Lives Matter movement. It was no coincidence that the West Indies won a Test match against England. This is a significant achievement in international cricket. The West Indies were playing under challenging circumstances, as they were the only team with a black captain. This added to their motivation. Sammy, a black captain has a powerful voice.
