Darren Sammy clarifies stance after cryptic tweet

West Indies’ all-rounder Darren Sammy, in a tweet on Tuesday, clarified his stance after a recent cryptic tweet sparked speculation of a potential rift between the Peshawar Zalmi skipper and their team owner Javed Afridi.

The 36-year-old was surprised by the speculation while claiming that there were no issues between the team owner and himself.

“I can’t believe that the media would think that my bro Javed Afridi and I would ever have an issue. I’m actually laughing at this. Listen guys I love this man as my own brother. Are u guys serious, Peshawar Zalmi is my baby and nothing comes between us. Absolutely nothing!” Sammy tweeted.

Earlier, Peshawar Zalmi captain Darren Sammy’s cryptic tweet has sparked speculations after the Windies all-rounder missed out on his team’s match against Karachi Kings in Rawalpindi, during the ongoing Habib Bank Limited (HBL) Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five.

Pacer Wahab Riaz, who captained the side during Sammy’s absence, said, at the toss, that the all-rounder was rested for the game.

Sammy took to Twitter where he wrote: “I’ve learned that you are important until you’ve completed your role. #dealingwithhumans”

The Pakistan government had, earlier, decided to confer honorary citizenship on Sammy for his “invaluable contribution” towards the return of top-flight cricket to the country, its cricket board said.

While the international cricket community stayed away from travelling to Pakistan following the attack, Sammy has been a regular member of the Peshawar Zalmi side in the Pakistan Super League since its start in 2016.

The 36-year-old St Lucian captained the franchise to the PSL title in the second edition in 2017 and often advocated for the return of international cricket to the country.
