West Indies Twenty20 International captain Darren Sammy is not sweating over the kind of pitch the team will play on at the Eden Gardens in the final of the ICC World T20 against England in Kolkata on Sunday.

The pitch slated to be used for the final of the 2016 ICC World T20 is currently sporting a slightly green tinge to it but Sammy was untroubled about the playing conditions.

Sammy stated that the team will play on any kind of track and revealed that he has not had a look at the pitch prior to the practice session.

"Just want a 22-yard long wicket and six feet wide," Sammy told reporters.

“Whatever they give us, we'll play on. It's a final.

“(I) haven't had a look at the wicket, will see it today during practice.”

Meanwhile, England’s limited overs skipper Eoin Morgan is prepared to give spin bowler Liam Dawson a debut if the grass on the pitch gives way for another turning track.

“Absolutely. He (Liam Dawson) has bowled brilliantly, he was not in the squad in South Africa but he travelled around with the side since he's been here,” said Morgan.

"I think he's come on a hell of a lot.

“We'd have no issues giving him a debut if that was the right way to go.”

If England have to win the mega-event for a second time on 3rd April in Kolkata, they will have to beat West Indies for the first time in the World T20, as they have lost all the previous four encounters.
