Pakistan Super League trophy unveiled in Karachi
KARACHI: The trophy for the Pakistan Super League was unveiled at Karachi’s National Stadium today.
Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Peshawar Zalmi’s Darren Sammy were present at the trophy unveiling ceremony as their teams will face off for the homegrown championship.
Addressing a press conference after the ceremony, Gladiators skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed expressed likings over the prime minister’s decision to hold PSL-five entirely in Pakistan.
“The level of cricket that we have seen in Pakistan was not seen in Dubai and Sharjah,” he said.
Anticipating about reaching the final, the Gladiators captain pledged to take the field with full strength on Sunday. He also lauded the response received by the Karachi crowd. “The Karachi crowd supported every team,” Sarfaraz said.
“Shane Watson alone is capable of winning matches,” he said about his team, adding “If the top order performs well then we can easily win the match.”
Zalmi captain Sammy said he would enjoy PSL regardless of where it is held. “It does not matter if the league is in Pakistan or in United Arab Emirates, I always enjoying playing PSL,” Sammy said. “I enjoy the passion of the fans in Pakistan.”
He added that the performance of the team matters more than individual performance to him.
The final of the fourth edition of the PSL will take place on Sunday between three-time finalists Quetta Gladiators and PSL 2017 winners Peshawar Zalmi at Karachi’s National Stadium.
