Afridi wants Pakistan to host PSL

Karachi, Sept.18 : Shahid Afridi has said the Pakistan Super League (PSL) should be held within their own territory, saying that it will be good if they could play cricket within the nation.

ESPNcricinfo quoted Twenty20 skipper Afridi as saying, “As we were talking about the revival of cricket in Pakistan after the Zimbabwe tour to Pakistan, we started to hope that cricket would continue to be played here. Our cricket should be played within our own territory. It looks good if our grounds get revived, filled with crowds and our own players get the maximum benefit out of it.”

The 35-year-old further said that he was not worried if foreign players come or not, insisting that the most important thing at a particular time is revival of cricket in Pakistan.

“I am not worried if foreign players come or not, but what is important is the revival of cricket in Pakistan and (that) our youngsters get opportunity to play in front of big crowds,” Afridi said

The PSL is slated to be held next year in Doha, Qatar in February while Pakistan will also play two T20s and three ODIs against Zimbabwe from September 27. (ANI)
