DUBAI: Darren Sammy who visited Pakistan earlier this year for the PSL final with Peshawar Zalmi told media in Dubai that he’s glad to be part of a process to bring cricket back to Pakistan.
“Pakistan is trying to bring cricket back safely and we are happy to be part of that,” said Sammy who twice-led West Indies to victory in the World T20 title in 2012 and 2016.
The 33-year-old West Indian cricketer said that it is good to be visiting Pakistan again and he would have been disappointed if he was not picked for the team to tour Pakistan.
Sammy, who also led Peshawar Zalmi to victory in the PSL title this year in Lahore, said that the three matches between Pakistan and World XI team are ‘bigger than just a cricket series.’
“It is exciting. It is bigger than just cricket matches...it is bigger and will play a part in bringing cricket back in Pakistan,” Sammy said.
The St. Lucia player also said that he has shared his experience of visiting Pakistan with fellow players who are part of the World XI squad.
