PSL: Daren Sammy Returns To Peshawar Zalmi As Head Coach

Posted by

Peshawar Zalmi has reappointed Daren Sammy as their head coach, replacing James Foster, who was in charge of the side during PSL 2022.

The 34-year-old all-rounder has been associated with Zalmi since PSL’s inception in 2016. He started as vice-captain and took over the leadership following Shahid Afridi’s resignation in 2017.

In 2020 the franchise made a mid-season shuffle by replacing him with Wahab Riaz as full-time captain. Sammy then served as head coach for two campaigns, which included another defeat in the final to 2021 champions Multan Sultans.

Last year Sammy coached St Lucia Kings in the Caribbean Premier League. They too reached the Eliminator before being defeated by eventual champions Jamaica Tallawahs.

Zalmi won the title in 2017 and finished runners-up in 2018, 2019, and 2021. In 2022, they lost to Islamabad United in the Eliminator.

The eighth edition of the PSL will start on February 9, and the final will take place on March 19, the PCB confirmed last month.
