Truly honoured to receive Nishan-e-Pakistan: Darren Sammy
LAHORE (92 News) – Peshawar Zalmi’s Captain Darren Sammy on Sunday has said that he is truly honoured to be given Pakistan’s highest civilian award – Nishan-e-Pakistan. Darren Sammy took to Twitter and expressed his feelings towards Pakistan’s civilian award and said, “I am truly honoured to be given this civilian award,” adding, “We took a small step in the right direction in 2017 and look at us here today. All the foreign players played their part.” A day after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that Sammy — one of the first foreign superstars to agree to come and play cricket in Pakistan, would be conferred with the civilian award by President Arif Alvi on March 23 — Zalmi captain reacted to the development on Twitter.
