Saint Lucia’s Daren Sammy Fulfills Wish Of Young Cancer Patient

Skipper of Peshawar Zalmi, Saint Lucian Daren Sammy, fulfilled a wish of a young cancer patient in Pakistan by meeting the youngster, local news reports say.

Hamza had expressed a wish to see the cricket star and uploaded a video  on social media indicating that meeting Sammy was his dream.

Peshawar Zalmi management saw the video and invited the youngster over to meet his hero, according to CricketWorld.

Hamza presented a portrait he had drawn of Sammy to his hero.

In a video recording of the meeting, Sammy observed that people have different roles in life.

” For me, if I can inspire one child I am doing my job. Hamza here is a champion,” he declared.

Referring to Hamza’s drawing of him, Sammy said with a chuckle: “He has given me broad shoulders so I could hit sixes in the next match!”

The Business Recorder reported that the  young cancer survivor also met with other Zalmi superstars including Wahab Riaz, Kamran Akmal and Chris Jordan.

According to the publication, Sammy, the West Indies T20 World Cup winning captain, enjoys a huge fan following in Pakistan, thanks to his ‘gutsy show on the field and enthusiasm off the field.’

  1. Great vibes, Sammy is well respected all over the world;He has fans and hugh followers, however,CWI, keeps on disrespectful to him .He has made an impact on so many lives, continue to do what you’re best at.

  2. Although he is no longer on the West Indies team, Daren Sammy is doing very well. I personally think that we want him back as captain of the West Indies T20 side because as far as I can see the current T20 side is pure rubbish.

  3. One of my all time. favourite cricketers,Daren Sammy is in my book a good and decent person_look!His smile is embracing,he is of Good people_Would have like to see him cpt.WindiesT20 team,but pettiness rue the day in some folks head.Blessings upon Daren & Family;hope we haven,t seen the last of him in WINDIES cricket.

  4. Daren Sammy is an affable, effervescent, genuinely decent person. This gentleman is always willing to give of himself to uplift the spirit and lives of others. He is truly a phenomenal human being. May he be blessed with good health and longevity.
