PESHAWAR – Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi is hopeful that West Indian player and Peshawar Zalmi captain Darren Sammy may convert to Islam soon.

Javed while talking to newsmen in Khyber house on Sunday categorically expressed that Dareen Sammy was studying Islam and it was his biggest achievement.

‘Let’s all pray Sammy converts to Islam’ said Javed Afridi.

Darren Sammy captained Peshawar Zalmi in second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) and led his team to become champions as well.

Darren Sammy enjoys a very good reputation among the masses, and also enjoys a good relationship with Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi and former Pakistani skipper Shahid Afridi.

Darren Sammy received much applause from Pakistani cricket fans when he showed his willingness to arrive in Lahore for the final of the second edition of the PSL despite security threats.

As many as nine foreign cricketers showed their skills in the high-octane clash that entertained Lahoris on March 5 but Darren Sammy was the one who won the most hearts owing to his friendly persona and humbleness.

From taking selfies with stadium crew to releasing videos in Pashtu, Sammy remained in the limelight and cricket fans in Pakistan paid respect to the legendary star for showing up for the thriller despite security concerns.
