Owner of Pakistan Super League’s franchise Karachi Kings Salman Iqbal has said that six out of their seven foreign players were ready to come and play in Pakistan in the PSL.
“Six of our seven [foreign] players are ready to come and play in Pakistan,” Salman Iqbal told while answering a question during the Karachi Kings’ official merchandise and anthem launching ceremony.
“Eoin Morgan, who has commitments to other leagues, [is the sole exception]. He will be coming late and will be leaving early,” he added.
He is hoping that everything remains fine in Pakistan and people get to see the international stars in action in the PSL. “This is a good news for all of us that players have agreed to come here and we hope everything remains fine,” he said.
The founder and CEO of ARY Digital Network also told that all the franchises of the league had convinced the majority of their foreign players to come and play in Pakistan.
“Overall, 98pc of the players have agreed to come to Lahore and Karachi. Some are left and hopefully they will also agree soon,” he further stated.
