Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Punjab Kings batsman Sarfaraz Khan has set the internet on fire with a video where he can be seen imitating former West Indies skipper Darren Sammy leaving his teammate Chris Gayle in splits. Meanwhile, it is always Gayle who takes the role of making people laugh with his antics but on this occasion, it was the other way around.
Punjab players were on the field for a training session when Sarfaraz decided to entertain his teammates. While the other PBKS players were sitting on their chairs, Sarfaraz Khan hilariously copied Sammy’s batting style and did it with perfection. Chris Gayle, who has seen Darren Sammy from close quarters over the years, started laughing and was also heard saying: “Yeah that’s Sammy, that’s Sammy”, while few others were clapping.
Sarfaraz Khan imitates Darren Sammy
Punjab Kings shared the video of Sarfaraz Khan’s imitation of Sammy on microblogging site Twitter and also tagged the latter in the tweet. However, Sammy is yet to respond to the tweet. Incidentally, Sarfaraz and Darren Sammy have shared the dressing room back in 2015 and 2016 when both of them plied their trade for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
