There is no shortage of global teams interested in picking St. Lucia’s Daren Sammy on their squad. The former West Indies captain, has been picked up by the Rajshahi Rockers to play in this year’s Bangladesh Premier League. The two time world cup champion who was recently dropped by the West Indies selectors, told St. Lucia Sports Online that he was “always confident that he would be called to play in this competition.”
St. Lucia Sports online can now confirm that not only will Sammy be playing for the Rockers, but he will captain the team. This comes as no surprise to St. Lucians and the rest of the world, as Sammy’s leadership has been further highlighted by the torrid performance by West Indies in T20s in his absence.
As a new team in the BPL, Rajshahi has confirmed that they want the most successful T20 captain in the games’s history to lead them through their first season. Some of the regional administrators in the sport, have already began to argue that Sammy should be returned as Captain of the West Indies team.
