Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal is hopeful the next edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be played in Pakistan.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) managed to host the final of the second edition of PSL in Lahore despite many international stars opting not to play. The board was keen to showcase the country is safe to play cricket in.
Speaking to media, Saeed Ajmal also bashed the players who were involved in spot-fixing scandal during the PSL, as he was critical of them for damaging Pakistan’s name in world cricket.
“They should be hand rigid punishments in case they are found guilty, because these players had not only disappointed their fans, friends and families but also damaged the name of the country,” Ajmal said.
The veteran spinner also revealed the PCB and the ICC anti-corruption unit are taking necessary measures to curb illegal activities in the sport.
“Such training classes prove very helpful in guiding young cricketers.
“I hope the next edition of the PSL will completely be staged in Pakistan. I am super fit and awaiting for chance to perform for my country. If I am given chance, I will surely deliver and help my team getting desired results,” Ajmal concluded.
Despite the incredible success of PSL final in Lahore, it still remains to be seen whether they can manage to lure any top side to play in the terrorized country that has not seen any cricketing action over the past decade.
