Usually, it’s Chris Gayle who makes others laugh with his hilarious antics on the field as well as off the field. No matter what the situation is, Gayle just finds a way to leave others in splits. But recently, it was his Punjab Kings (PBKS) teammate Sarfaraz Khan who left him in splits with his imitation of former West Indies captain Daren Sammy.
The PBKS 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 hilariously copied Sammy’s batting style and did it with perfection. Gayle started laughing and was also heard saying: “Yeah that’s Sammy, that’s Sammy”, while few others were clapping.
Sarfaraz has spent a good amount of time with Sammy in the past. The right-handed batsman had shared the dressing room with the T20 World Cup-winning skipper in IPL 2015 and 2016 when both of them plied their trade for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Later, Sammy also played for PBKS (then Kings XI Punjab) in 2017.
PBKS shared the video of Sarfaraz’s imitation of Sammy on Twitter and also tagged the latter in the tweet. Sammy is yet to respond to the tweet. The former West Indies all-rounder is known for his sporting nature and would definitely love to respond to the tweet if he notices it.
Here is the tweet shared by PBKS:

PBKS eye maiden IPL title:
PBKS will be taking the field this year with an eye on their maiden IPL title. The Punjab-based franchise are one of the only three teams who are playing in the tournament since the inaugural season in 2008 but are yet to win it. The closest they came to winning the title was in 2014 when they made it to the first-ever final. They, however, lost the title-decider against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Since then, they have not managed to progress ahead of the league stage. In IPL 2020, the KL Rahul-led side finished sixth. After changing their name, PBKS will be hoping that their fortunes change this year. They will open their campaign on April 12 against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium.
