On Saturday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) broke the news that the renowned West Indies and Peshawar Zalmi player, Darren Sammy will be awarded with Nishan-e-Pakistan – the highest civilian award of the country. Considering all the efforts made by him towards promotion of cricket in Pakistan, this news came as no surprise!

Sammy will be the first ever cricketer to be honored with this award. As shared by the PCB on Twitter, the award will be presented by our President, Dr. Arif Alvi on March 23.

Following this declaration, Peshawar Zalmi’s owner Javed Afridi shared with Geo News, “when Sammy was supporting Pakistan cricket, he did not do this to obtain citizenship, but this award is in recognition of his services”. He further added, “”this will encourage everyone to support Pakistan cricket.”

Meanwhile, Darren Sammy also expressed his sentiments by stating that his support extended purely from his love for Pakistan, but not to seek any personal gains. He said,

“My love for Pakistan is natural, and my contribution for this country is pure. I don’t need a passport to show my love for this country.  I didn’t do it for myself. It is for my affection with the people and for the love I get from here”.
