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.
