Darran Sammy played for Peshawar Zalmi in Pakistan Super League’s first installment this year. In an emotional Twenty20 finale, West Indies vanquished India on their home ground. In a historic event, West Indies women, West Indies men and West Indies U19 team whisked away the T20 world cup.
In a tribute to Darren Sammy’s captaincy for making West Indies victorious again in World T20 final, the country of his birth, St Lucia, announced that the island’s main cricket ground would be renamed in his honor.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy thanked his Pakistani supporters in a video message posted on Peshawar Zalmi’s official page.
“Okay, to all my Pakistani fans, I am gonna speak in your language,” he starts before reading out further gratitude in Pashto.
