World Giants crowned champions of the inaugural Legends League Cricket tournament
The Daren Sammy-led World Giants secured a comprehensive 25-run victory over Asia Lions in the final of Legends League Cricket 2022 at Oman.
After being asked to bat first in the summit clash, the World Giants registered an imposing total of 265 thanks to Corey Anderson's unbeaten knock of 94 from just 43 deliveries. Sammy also contributed with his quick-fire 38 off 17 balls.
Sammy, who is yet to retire from professional cricket, was the head coach of Peshawar Zalmi in the previous edition of the Pakistan Super League. However, he pulled out of the latest edition because of broadcasting commitments.
Former England wicketkeeper-batter James Foster has replaced Sammy as head coach for the Peshawar-based franchise in the latest edition of the T20 tournament.
As per recent reports, they are still in talks with the West Indies star for a mentorship role, given his significant contributions to the success of the team over the years.
