LAHORE: Pakistan Super League (PSL) Governing Council Chairman Najam Sethi has said that it is his dream to introduce Kashmir’s team as the sixth outfit in second edition of PSL which will be played in February next year in UAE.
“My dream is to launch 6th Kashmir team in PSL this year. Hope our five franchisee partners will support me in this initiative,” Sethi tweeted.
The inaugural edition had five teams Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi, Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings.
Islamabad United went onto become first champions of PSL after beating Quetta Gladiators in the final.
“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,” Javid Afridi tweeted.
The Pakistan Super League was a huge success not just financially but also in terms of promoting a soft image of Pakistan in front of the entire world. A team from Kashmir would be the ideal addition to PSL as the a lot of talent exist in that area but they lack an ideal forum to express themselves and nurture their skills.
It may be noted that many cricket fans from Pakistan have raised their voice in support of a team from Kashmir to be included in PSL and this news will be a breath of fresh air for the cricket thirsty nation.
