Darren Sammy in Pakistan Super League
Peshawar Zalmi has been one of the most fan-followed franchises of the PSL since its start. Sammy replaced Shahid Afridi as captain in the 2017 season and went on to win the PSL in a historic final played at Ghaddafi stadium, Lahore. The Pakistan Cricket Board have been trying their best to bring PSL brand back home at Pakistan and they have partly succeeded courtesy players like Darren Sammy who has never hesitated in visiting the country and interacting with the fans.
Sammy on reaching Pakistan said that he loves the group of players that Zalmi have and the bowling lineup has always been the turning point for them. He further said:
‘’He has loved every season with Peshawar Zalmi and he is happy that the PSL is growing into one of the best leagues in the world.’’
Sammy arrived this morning at the Islamabad International Airport where he was welcomed by the franchise owner Javed Afridi who shares a friendly relationship with the St.Lucian born star cricketer. A video was shared by Peshawar Zalmi Facebook page showing the arrival of Sammy and welcomed by Javed Afridi. Have a look:
Sammy has always been given the right recognition & respect at the franchise that he deserves by the Zalmi owners and Management and he has always responded with the generosity which is evident in his visit to Peshawar for the kit and anthem launch this year.
Peshawar Zalmi shared a video showing the glimpses of the event stage and telling everyone about how big this event is going to be which is open to everyone.
We are all looking forward to 7:00 PM for the event and to view the star among his home fans at Peshawar. Sammy himself looked very excited to be going to Peshawar and interact with everyone.
Hopefully, the skipper can win another season for his side this year. Best of luck to Zalmis!
