Lahore (Web Desk): Former Pakistan captain, Shahid Afridi, has officially joined Karachi Kings for the third season of Pakistan Super League.
The news of his transfer was confirmed by PSL’s official social media page.
Previously affiliated with Peshawar Zalmi, who were victorious in the PSL 2017, Afridi’s move to Karachi is nothing short of a surprise to everyone considering the good relations between the owner of the Zalmis and Shahid Afridi. However, this move was expected since April but the official announcement has only just taken place.
Peshawar will get Karachi’s Gold & Silver Picks, in return, during the first phase of the player draft. Both teams might also swap more players later on.
The draft will be held in mid-October for all the categories except Emerging Players’ category, which will be held in January 2018, the sources revealed.
Boom Boom Afridi brings a wealth of experience and a never-say-die attitude and that is exactly what Karachi need, according to its owner, Salman Iqbal.
Salman added that he is absolutely delighted with the signing.
