Peshawar Zalmi emerged as the victor of the PSL season 2, which has obviously increased its fan base and popularity. However, the defending champions have undergone a major setback by losing Shahid Afridi to the Karachi Kings, hence, they will continue under the leadership of Darren Sammy.
Several other players were retained for the Peshawar Zalmi squad 2018, including Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, Bangladeshi star player Shakib al Hasan, fast bowler Wahab Riaz, and keeper Kamran Akmal, creating a powerful core for Peshawar Zalmi. The fast bowling legend Hasan Ali, England seamer Chris Jordan, all-rounder Haris Sohail, and Mohammad Asghar were also retained for the Peshawar Zalmi squad for PSL 2018.
Peshawar Zalmi managed to pick out some incredible players during the Draft, especially the legendary all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who has the ability to run through batting line-ups if he maintains his physical fitness. The Peshawar Zalmi squad 2018 will also be joined by some other players recruited during the PSL 3 Draft, including Saad Nasim, Hammad Azam, Taimoor Sultan, and Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal. The emerging players are Ibtisam Sheikh and Sameen Gul.
The PSL 2018 Peshawar Zalmi players picked out four supplementary players, Evin Lewis, hard-hitting West Indian Andre Fletcher, Mohammad Arif and Khalid Usman, who will join the team for a few games if the need arises.
Peshawar Zalmi delighted us all with their outstanding performance during the 2017 edition of the Pakistani Super League. Their terrific performance garnered them their very first PSL trophy, after scoring the first position in the league table by finishing the game with four wins and three draws. Even though the Quetta Gladiators also finished the league with an equal tally, they had a lower net run rate, which scored them the second position.
Javed Afridi, the owner of Peshawar Zalmi has also purchased rights to the Benoni T20 Global League South Africa team.
The Peshawar Zalmi have been buy configuring their team to ensure their second win in a row. They have decided to include Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hafeez and the legendary wicket keeper Kamran Akmal, who was the man of the series in the last season of PSL. The team has also extended its arms to include other Pakistani players including Mohammad Asghar, Haris Sohail and Saad Nasim among others.
The team didn’t hold back on international players either. They went on to sign Darren Sammy as the captain of the team. Some of the other players that the team thought worthy to bring on board included Chris Jordan, Jian Li and Yufie Zhang. It’s going to be interesting seeing a team perform with so many cultures and traditions. We can’t wait to see how the Zalmi take over the battlefield this time!
Of course it does mean that there are certain major changes in Peshawar Zalmi Squad 2018. For one thing, Shahid Afridi has left the team and is now reportedly playing for the Karachi Kings. This may or may not affect the Zalmi’s chances to win this season. The only way to find out is to stay tuned and watch all the live action.
