KARACHI: Peshawar Zalmi have appointed veteran all-rounder Daren Sammy as their head coach for the season eight of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The 38-year-old will bring a wealth of experience to the Zalmi dugout bearing in mind the fact that he won the T20 World Cup trophy twice with the West Indies national team.
“I’m happy to be a part of Peshawar Zalmi once again. They are like my family and I’m eagerly looking forward to PSL 8,” Sammy was quoted as saying in a press release by the media department of Zalmi.
Sammy, who has been integral part of the Zalmi franchise since the first season, was not available in PSL 7 due to prior commitments.
It must be noted that Sammy led Zalmi to its maiden title in 2017 after his side defeated Quetta Gladiators in the final.
Sammy considers winning the trophy for Peshawar as one of the “best memories of his career”.
The St Lucia-born has featured in 320 T20 matches over the course of his career, which includes 3918 runs at a strike-rate of 138.39. He has also bagged 160 wickets in those matches.
