Sammy to play for the Titans

Posted on November 24, 2014 by Ken

Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy will be playing for the Unlimited Titans in this year’s RamSlam T20 Challenge, it was announced at the competition launch last night.

All-rounder Sammy has played 38 Tests and 115 ODIs for the West Indies

and Titans captain Henry Davids said his explosiveness and experience would be invaluable.

“He’s a very experienced player and explosive with the bat, so that’s the sort of player you want in T20,” Davids told The Citizen last night.

The 30-year-old Sammy is also one of the most popular figures in cricket and will also be a valuable contributor in the changeroom for the Titans.

“I played with him in the Caribbean Premier League for the St Lucia Zouks and he’s a very calm character, with a great attitude and personality, a wonderful team man,” Davids said.

Sammy will be a highly effective replacement for the injured Albie Morkel,  Davids added.

Other confirmed overseas visitors for the T20 Challenge are Dwayne Bravo (Dolphins), Kieran Pollard (Cobras), Andre Russell (Knights) and Craig Kieswetter (Warriors).

The T20 Challenge will kick off on November 2 with a triple-header at the Wanderers.

Throughout the competition, there will be a share of a million rand on offer for any spectators who take a clean one-handed catch off a six.

  • Thought of the Day

    1 Corinthians 3:3 - "For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?"

    One of my favourite U2 songs is a collaboration with Johnny Cash called The Wanderer, and it features the line "they say they want the kingdom, but they don't want God in it".
    Many people say they believe in God, but they don't experience his loving presence. They may be active in Christian work, but only if they have their way. If they cannot be leaders, they refuse to be involved.
    Because they refuse to allow God to fill their lives with his love, they remain weak and powerless.
    Spiritual maturity means developing a greater love for others.

    "When the love of Christ saturates you, immature attitudes such as pettiness, jealousy and strife are dissolved.
    "It is only when you have an intimate relationship with the Lord that you receive sufficient grace to rise above this immaturity and enjoy the solid food that the Holy Spirit gives you." - Solly Ozrovech, A Shelter From The Storm
