Glamorgan: Surrey game is 'massive' says Darren Sammy

Glamorgan and West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy

West Indies and Glamorgan all-rounder Darren Sammy says the Welsh county's T20 Blast clash against Surrey in Cardiff on Friday is huge.

Glamorgan are currently third in their group, two points above a fifth placed Surrey.

The visitors feature former England batsman Kevin Pietersen and West Indian star Sammy is looking forward to the clash.

"I'm very excited," said Sammy, "It's a massive game for us."

"So far the team is playing well so we look to continue in that vein."

Glamorgan tied their last match in the competition against Kent in dramatic style after taking a wicket on the final ball.

They've only lost one of their six matches and Glamorgan coach Toby Radford said that Sammy has yet to hit top form since signing, something the West Indies star agrees with.

"That would be a fair comment," said Sammy.

"Coming from India I'm getting used to the conditions, but the good thing is that I come into the side where the guys are playing really well.

"We have performances coming from everywhere which is a good sign for any team."

The 30-year-old says Pietersen will not be getting any special attention from the Glamorgan team.

"Yes we are playing against Kevin [Pietersen] but we are also playing against 10 other players which we have to plan properly for.

"We have to continue to do what we've been doing for the past few games.

"Which is look to execute them properly and pick up the victories we need to get up to the next stage."
