Darren Sammy, the West Indian all-rounder, played in T20 cricket for Glamorgan during 2014.
The tall and languid cricketer played some quixotic innings during his stay in Wales, including the game with Hampshire at Sophia Gardens which saw the Welsh county lose more by six inches than six runs as Darren nearly produced a match-winning innings. 75 runs were needed from 38 balls as he made his way to the middle to join Chris Cooke, with the pair proceeding to blast 56 off just 19 balls in a pulsating sixth wicket stand that for a while looked like changing the complexion of the game.
Darren drilled South African seamer Kyle Abbott straight for a pair of sixes into the stands at the Cathedral Road End but, in the next over, he lofted Chris Wood towards the long-off boundary where Jimmy Adams ran around and, at full stretch high above his head, completed the catch inches away from the ropes.
Besides playing in many T20 franchises all over the world, the St. Lucian has also played in 38 Test Matches, 126 One-Day Internationals and 66 International T20 games for the West Indies.
