Watch: Imran Khan lands a SHOCKER, calls Darren Sammy 'third class'

Imran Khan has lashed out at foreign players who agreed to come for the PSL Finale at Lahore. His prime target was the West Indian captain Darren Sammy

From Zulfiqar Haider to Mohammad Aamir, Pakistani cricketers are no stranger to controversies. The latest offender is the most famous Pakistani cricketer, Imran Khan. Pakistan’s former World Cup winning captain Imran Khan, who is also a politician now, has lashed out at foreign players who agreed to come for the Pakistan Super League Finale at Lahore. His prime target was the West Indian captain Darren Sammy.

He overstepped the line and called Sammy ‘third class’. This is disgusting considering that it comes from a global cricket icon. It is also strange because he should be happy that cricket finally returned to Pakistan after a hiatus of eight years. Tracing back the years to 2009, Pakistan was banned from hosting international cricket after terrorists attacked the Sri Lankan team bus while they were travelling to the Gadaffi stadium.

He soon took a U-turn, when he thanked the crowd for their participation.

He also stated that Sammy was the captain but he is not a good player. He also spoke about Kevin Pietersen and Chris Gayle saying that if they had come, the tournament finale had been big.

Imran Khan said, “Had Chris Gayle come, had Kevin Pietersen come, I would have said they were big international stars.” Chris Gayle did not turn up because his team Karachi Kings did not reach the finals and Kevin Pietersen denied over security concerns.
