After winning the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) with Peshawar Zalmi earlier this month, West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels is so impressed with India's arch-rivals that he now wishes to join their Army.

The 36-year-old was lauding the Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa for security and top-class arrangements during the PSL final in Lahore when he shocked everyone by expressing his desire to join the brigade.

"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 urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to bring international cricket back to Pakistan after the PSL final was successfully and peacefully hosted at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

"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.
