Peshawar Zalmi skipper Darren Sammy has offered to pay taxes in Pakistan. He is going to be awarded honourary citizenship on March 23.

Sammy's offer to Prime Minister Imran Khan got a laugh out of the premier, who said he would be exempted from paying taxes.

Sammy met PM Khan at the PM House alongside franchise owner Javed Afridi, bowling coach Mohammad Akram and batting coach Hashim Amla.

During the meeting, PM Khan lauded Sammy and Peshawar Zalmi's role for reviving international cricket in Pakistan.

"Now you've become a Pakistani, I congratulate you on becoming a citizen," the premier was quoted as saying.

The prime minister said the ongoing Pakistan Super League taking place entirely in Pakistan for the first time is projecting a positive image.

“These stadiums are fully occupied due to efforts of Javed Afridi and Darren Sammy,” he said.
