West Indies allrounder Darren Sammy, who was a part of Pakistan Super League franchise Peshawar Zalmi this year, first as a captain, and then as a coach, sported an unique airport look in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. The tournament was suspended without the semifinals and final being played out, and Sammy was on his way home. From the airport, Sammy posted a video of himself, in which he was seen wearing a stylish shades and an air-filtering mask.
In the video, Sammy’s face was completely covered and he was unrecognisable. “Me vs #covid_19”,” the cricketer captioned the video.
Sammy, then, also tweeted his experiences on the flight, and he expressed fear about passengers coughing in the flight. “I remember sometime ago when I was flying and some passengers killed me with farts now I’m flying and hearing ppl coughing I’m like oh lord why didn’t you fart instead,” he wrote.
