Aqib Javed big statement about Pakistan Super League (PSL)
Head Coach of Lahore Qalandars, Javed Afridi, stated that if PSL (Pakistan Super League) does not start, Pakistani cricket will decline. He is confident in nurturing his players and turning them into superstars. The PSL provides a platform for the cricketers to showcase their abilities.
Jawid, after concluding his team’s journey and discussing their assignment and upcoming edition, stated that prior to the onset of PSL Season, the players draft in the draft market offers better money for the available players, and during the initial season, there is generally a shortage of resources in Lahore Qalandars due to the player draft.
He stated that when he was assigned to the franchise in the second edition, he was faced with the challenge of constructing a crew, due to the fact that there were already numerous talented players in the opposing team. This was when he initiated the players development program. Despite encountering sufficient criticism during the first three years, he felt a sense of pride in enhancing the skills of his players.
When we appointed Sehail Akhtar as our captain in PSL, he took the team to the final. They said that 2022’s title was the best for us. Shahin led the final in Lahore as the captain. We succeeded in forming our core group in PSL, we were only slightly affected by the loss of one captain, and Shahin has established himself as a capable captain.
They said that in each franchise, the fundamental players are those who started their careers with that team and still play for them. When we talk about the Quetta Gladiators, we see that pride is on our side, with Shahin joining the team as the Emerging category player and now we are the captains. Haris Rauf was added through the Player Development Program, now he is one of the top bowlers in the Farmate team.
They said that we aim to give opportunities to our rising players and turn them into superstars.
When you entrust a youthful cricketer, he can grasp the cognizance of his genuine potential. It has been said that if there is no PSL, Pakistani cricket will face the peril of extinction, capital ventures are invested in the most talented cricketers in the franchise, which causes fierce competition in the league. The credit of Shaheen Afridi, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hassan Ali, Babar Azam, and Shadab Khan’s rise and progression belongs to PSL.
It has been said that when Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings clash, the stadium is filled to capacity, there is no additional hoopla, but cricketers take it as an opportunity to perform and showcase their strategy. It has been stated that Babar Azam was transferred to the Peshawar Zalmi, and enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the scintillating cricket between the captain of Zalmi and Shahid Afridi in the upcoming season.
