Peshawar Zalmi appoints former Pakistan World Cup winning captain Imran Khan as the mentor for the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan will now be lending his cricketing skills and experience and he is returning to the game after at least a score year.
Imran Khan, who is the top most politician of the country of the ongoing decade, is the captain which had won Pakistan the only World Cup in 1992 held in Australia-New Zealand.
Shahid Afridi has been picked up by Peshawar Zalmi as its icon player against $75,000 and has taken him from Islamabad United, which had chosen him at the first place in their icon player category.
Other national players included in the Peshawar Zalmi are Umar Gul, Imran Khan Jr, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Muhammad Hafeez, Bangladeshi opening batsman Tamim Iqbal and West Indian all-rounder Darren Sammy.
The owner of the franchise on the occasion of bidding said that he is happy at the combination of his team and remains hopeful for the performance in the tournament.
“We are pleased with our selections for Peshawar Zalmi,” said Javed Afridi.
“The team is a blend of some fantastic T20 players and Zalmis. The Zalmis are the young unsung heroes of KPK who have been included in the squad like Taj Wali, Israrullah and Imran Khan Junior.
