Power-batting West Indies superstar Chris Gayle, Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga, Bangledesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal, and England bowler Chris Jordan are just a few big names who will feature in the 24 Pakistan Super League matches that run from February 4 until the championship final on February 23.
“This first-of-its-kind arrangement with HBL PSL is set to bring the best of Pakistan cricket to millions of fans in Pakistan and around the world via YouTube”, said Tania Aidrus, Country Manager, South Asia Emerging Markets at Google. Even though the PSL is a domestic tournament, Hafeez, who is now serving a 12-month bowling ban, can not apply for a reassessment of his action until his suspension ends. We are sticking with that. Though Hafeez continued to bowl regularly in domestic cricket after his ban, the PSL has chose to stick with the ICC’s ruling. The younger players who have been included in the team are extremely excited as this is the opportunity for them to prove their mettle on Pakistan’s biggest platform.
The Pakistan batsman and occasional spinner was suspended from bowling for a year by the International Cricket Council (ICC) last July due to an illegal action. “The rules were already cleared before the final pick and it was mutually agreed”. He had earlier been reported for a suspect action after the Abu Dhabi Test against New Zealand in November 2014.
He was finally signed by Peshawar Zalmi for $ 70,000. “I picked him as a batsman”, Zalmi’s head coach Mohammad Akram said.
