Many used to call him ‘Kalu’ while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Not only Sammy, but his teammate Thisara Perera from Sri Lanka was also called by this name.

After learning the meaning of this word after so many days, Sammy wrote on Instagram, ‘Oh! Does this mean that thisara and I were called “Kalu” for the Sunrisers in the IPL? I thought it meant strong horses. I was very angry whenever I found out that this meant something else.’
