Daren Sammy has acquired a legendary status in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and is credited with playing a key role in reviving international cricket in Pakistan. After leading Peshawar Zalmi for a lengthy period of time, Sammy stepped down as the captain of the side last week and has been appointed the coach of the PSL franchise.
He recently gave an interview to a major private news channel in Pakistan where he got candid about many aspects of his life. When asked about his cricketing idols in Pakistan, Sammy answered that he was always fascinated by former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq.
Elaborating on his pick for his favourite Pakistani player, Sammy claimed he tries to mimic Razzaq’s batting style and his aggression on the crease. The 36-year-old said he often met people surprised by this choice but he has always been a fan of the explosive player.
