Daren Sammy is calling out the racism he experienced while playing in Indian Premier League (IPL). Sammy took to Instagram to express his outrage upon realising the term ‘kallu’ was not a praise like he had assumed. “I just learnt what Kallu meant when I played for Sunrisers in IPL. They called me and Perera by that name. I thought it meant Strong Stallion.”
West Indian cricketer and Peshawar Zalmi stalwart Darren Sammy has been appointed the new head coach of the club. While Wahab Riaz, the right arm pacer will now be leading the squad. The swashbuckling all-rounder has been playing for the “Yellow Storm” since the very first edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Peshawar Zalmi skipper Darren Sammy has offered to pay taxes in Pakistan as he is going to be awarded honourary citizenship on March 23. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Sammy would be exempted from paying taxes as he met the Zalmi player at the PM House. PM Khan also lauded Sammy and Peshawar Zalmi’s role for reviving international cricket in Pakistan and congratulated him on becoming a citizen during the meeting.
Peshawar Zalmi Chairman, Javed Afridi, has requested President, Arif Alvi, to grant Darren Sammy honorary citizenship of Pakistan. Javed did this in a formal request to the President, giving him the reason that Sammy was not only the first player to step ahead in bringing PSL to Pakistan, but he also loves the country from the core of his heart.
