Peshawar Zalmi won the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2017, beating Quetta Gladiators in the final by 58 runs at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore thanks to Darren Sammy’s heroics with the bat, which earned him the name of Darren Sammy Khan.
Peshawar Zalmi has among the best win/loss ratios for any PSL franchise, speaking for the quality of cricket played by its players. Some of the most consistently performing players include Kamran Akmal and Wahab Riaz, as both are leading their respective charts, batting and bowling.
One of the main reasons behind the franchise’s success is the fact that the team management has stuck to the same set of players, ensuring team bonding thereby better teamwork, on and off the field.
Darren Sammy, two times World T20 and one time PSL winner, will once again lead the side and hope to add another title to his portfolio. Peshawar Zalmi is immensely popular in Pakistan, with massive fan following, not just in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but all across the country. You can see the Zalmi yellow almost everywhere you go during PSL time of the year.
