‘I wait for February whole year to play PSL’ says Darren Sammy


One of the heartthrobs of Pakistani cricket fans and skipper of Peshawar Zalmi Darren Sammy waits for the whole year to participate in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as the craze, enthusiasm, and more importantly quality cricket make this league one of the compelling leagues around the world.

“I wait for February whole year just to play the PSL,” said Sammy while talking to the media ahead of their final match against Quetta Gladiators on Sunday (March 10) at National Stadium Karachi.

Sammy is excited to go out in front of an energetic crowd of Karachi for the last time in this year’s PSL and win the coveted title. “It’s been amazing playing before such an enthusiastic crowd. We are just one step away from lifting the trophy and I hope it’s our day tomorrow,” said Sammy who rated his side strong to bring yet another PSL title to their name.

The double T20 World Cup winning captain West Indies also praised Quetta Gladiators for putting up a solid show throughout the whole season. “They [Gladiators] have been doing good in PSL and I hope an exciting final contest awaits the PSL audience,” he said.

Sammy, when asked about his Pakistani name ‘Darren Sammy Khan’, he replied that he got many names before but his mom gave him a name that is ‘Darren Sammy’.

“I have to get my mom’s permission for any other name,” Sammy said.
