Pakistani cricket icon and 1992 World Cup winning captain Imran Khan has signed up with an important role in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Khan will be involved with the Peshawar side and will be the mentor of the team led by flamboyant all rounder Shahid Afridi. Afridi confirmed Khan’s role with the Peshawar Zalmi side a few hours ago.
“Mr Imran Khan has signed on as a mentor to the team. We are extremely pleased with the association of Peshawar Zalmi with him,” Afridi said. “Who has not heard of the great Mr Khan, he is perhaps the greatest cricketer to have come out of not only Pakistan, but is one of the greatest of all time worldwide.” “Zalmi stands for the ‘youth’ of our land, and who better to have to look up to as a mentor than the real life super cricket hero Mr Imran Khan himself,?” said a charged up Afridi.
Boom Boom Afridi was quick to add that despite Khan’s political association, there would be no political activity involved from Khan’s side in the team. “Imran Khan much before he was one of the leading politicians in the country was a cricketer that has served this nation to the best of his immense capabilities,” he said.
“There is no political association here,” Afridi added. “Those who think of it that way will do a disservice to both Mr Imran Khan’s great cricketing legacy and insight, as well as the vision and intention behind this move by the Peshawar Zalmi.”
Divulging details about Khan’s exact role, Afridi said, “He is of course a very busy personality.” “But where ever he will be able to provide insight to the team as well as a vision for the Zalmis we will take it on board.” “His fearless, competitive and visionary approach is what we really want to benefit from,” said Afridi, “As a mentor he will act as an overall guide to cricketing affairs and can really help the younger boys in our team develop into the stars of tomorrow.”
