Darren Sammy is a name which Pakistanis and the history of cricket can never forget.
Not only did Sammy come to Pakistan when many other foreign cricketers refused, his love for the country has let us respect him even further.
Sammy’s Twitter is filled with tweets expressing his love for Pakistan, his fans, his team, and fellow mates, but this particular tweet in Pashto has captivated the hearts of hundreds! Sammy tweeted:
“Pakhairoona Zalmi’s. Sanga ai Taso. Umeed laram che taso ba tol rogh Jor ai. Sanga chal de psl 3 bara ke mu sa khyal de.(Tell me what u think of spl draft)”
Pakhairoona Zalmi’s. Sanga ai Taso. Umeed laram che taso ba tol rogh Jor ai. Sanga chal de psl 3 bara ke mu sa khyal de.(Tell me what u think of spl draft)
