Here is big news that Shahid Khan Afridi who is Peshawar Zalmi captain of last season has decided to give his captaincy of Darren Sammy for PSL season 2. This is really surprising news for all the Shahid Khan Afridi supporters because they also want Afridi lead Peshawar Zalmi as a captain like last year. Shahid Afridi has announced this news on PSL2 Drafting event which was held on 19th October 2016 in Dubai. The reason behind for giving captaincy of Darren Sammy is that Afridi need more concentrate on his performance and it is really tough for him to perform with captaincy so Afridi has decided to step down from Captaincy and he has given to West-indies Big Star Darren Sammy. He also said on drafting event he has known how to give respect of Cricket Legends.
Ramiz Raja did interview of Peshawar Zalmi owner MR Javed Afridi and asked reason about this captaincy shuffling. MR Javed Afridi said Peshawar Zalmi management has tried really hard to convince of Afridi don’t step down from Captaincy but Afridi need to give more focus on his performance for PSL season 2 so due to this reason he has given his captaincy of Darren Sammy. This is also really positive approach of Afridi because as we all know Darren Sammy is one of best T20 Captain of the World and West-indies has won two T20 World cups under the captaincy of him. Sammy has experienced for leading in many big stars. Sammy is only player who was led of West-indies team in seniors big cricket stars. Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Kevin Pollard all these big stars have played under captaincy of him and performed really well in many occasions. He is remarkable International captain for T20 format and Zalmi is looking really tough under the captaincy of him.
Sammy is the finest choice of Peshawar Zalmi for Captaincy after Afridi. Zalmis will surely perform better from last season under captaincy of him. Shahid Afridi is president of Peshawar Zalmi and he has given full strength of Sammy for performing excellent in PSL 2017. Sammy always plays with passion and he had performed really well in overall PSL season 1. Peshawar Zalmi is looking strong squad for PSL 2 and this team has many players who have done captaincy for his Country like Eoin Morgan, Mohammad Hafeez and Mohammad Shahzad. Zalmiseems like favorite for PSL season 2 but in the end only which team will win who can control on nerves and play positive cricket in throughout league.
