JAMAICA: What’s the key mantra to win a T20 tournament? Just draft Darren Sammy to your side.
Sammy, the bowler, had routed the English batting on his Test debut, claiming 7 for 66 in second innings. Sammy the bowler has taken a backseat now. He makes sporadic appearances at best. Yet, he wins an all-important final with the ball.
Peshawar Zalmi skipper West Indies cricketer Darren Sammy has said that it feels good to be a ‘small’ part of efforts to revive international cricket in Pakistan.
Zalmi had won Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 and the defending champions are to meet fresh franchise Multan Sultans in Dubai on February 22 for the first match of PSL 2018.
Pakistan is set to hold another installment of indigenous cricket league in the coming days, final match of which is to be played in Karachi.
The third season of the Pakistan Super League starts in the United Arab Emirates on February 22. The tournament will move to Pakistan for two play-offs on March 20-21 and the final in Karachi on March 25.
Security experts Reg Dickason and Richard Dennis witnessed a full dress rehearsal for the final in Karachi. They were also briefed by Pakistani security and government officials on the arrangements.
“Whatever we have witnessed today, it s as good as I have seen in all my years of work but I can t say a final word (on hosting the final) now and will submit my report within the next seven days,” Dickason told media.
The team s report will be integral to paving the way for the final.
