Marlon Samuels Eager To Join Pakistan Army, Says He Is Pakistani At Heart

Marlon Samuels was part of the Peshawar Zalmi squad that won the 2017 Pakistan Super League title in Lahore on March 5.

West Indies cricketer Marlon Samuels has expressed his desire to join the Pakistan Army and saluted its Army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, for the security and top class arrangements provided for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final that was held at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on March 5. The 36-year-old, who played for eventual winners Peshawar Zalmi and scored 19 in the summit clash, also vowed to support Pakistan cricket.

“Thank you to the Army for the way they dealt with the things, security was top class and couldn’t ask for a better security and system. I have spent a lot of time with Pakistanis in Jamaica, they are all my friends and I am a Pakistani in my heart. So it didn’t take much time for me to decide to come to Pakistan,” said Samuels, who has 71 Tests for the Caribbean team.

While addressing the Pakistani Army chief directly, Samuels further said, “I am a soldier and I salute you General. I wouldn’t mind coming to Pakistan if I get a metallic badge on my shoulder. I am just waiting for the badge on my shoulder. I would want to be a part of the Pakistan Army.”

He also promised to support cricket in Pakistan.

“Cricket should definitely come back to Pakistan and I will continue to promote this till I die. From the bottom of the heart, I say to you Pakistan I am with you,” said the right-hander, who played 187 One-Day Internationals for the West Indies.
