Islamabad, April 23: After Pakistan Super League (PSL) Governing Council Chairman Najam Sethi’s plan of including Kashmir as the sixth team in PSL’s second edition, Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi has gone one step further by expressing that players from “Indian Occupied Kashmir” should be given chance as well.
It should be mentioned here that the PSL’s first edition had five teams – Islamabad United, Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi, Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings – and they were told that for two years no other team would be included.
However, there has been change of heart by PSL officials who now want to bring in another outfit to improve second edition.
Afridi has been campaigning on twitter regarding the idea of bringing Kashmir’s team.
“If PSL Mgt start a vote of confidence for another 6th Team in PSL.I’ll strongly recommend “Kashmir Team”soft msg to the world’s sports arena,” Afridi tweeted.
In another tweet he stated: “Simply we can open the Gates for the New Talent from Indian Occupied Kashmir where the spirit of One Kashmir Flag raises through continents. I also feel that the initiative shouldn’t b restricted 2 AJK,we shud find ways of incorporating cricketers frm Indian occupied Kashmiris too.”
