Shahid Afridi joins Karachi Kings for PSL 2018

Shahid Afridi joins Karachi Kings for PSL 3

Karachi Kings have been bolstered by the signing of Shahid Afridi on Tuesday for the third season of the Pakistan Super League. Afridi featured for the Peshawar Zalmi in the previous two seasons including one year as the captain before handing over the role to Darren Sammy last year.

However, he opted to move over to the Karachi Kings which now means that the Zalmis will be swapping picks with the Kings during this year’s PSL Draft.

Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi recognised Afridi’s efforts towards moulding his team and said:

Shahid is a world-class player and the entire Peshawar Zalmi family thanks him for his contributions to our team.

He is like a brother and We wish him the very best of luck in this new journey,” said Zalmi’s owner.

On the other hand, Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal was happy to welcome Afridi to the side.

Shahid Afridi is the biggest name in Pakistan cricket and we are extremely pleased to have him on board.

Afridi had earlier joined the Karachi Kings as a Player President after he announced he was quitting the Zalmis in the lead-up to the third PSL season. Rather strangely, no reasons were provided by Afridi and even the Zalmis team owners had earlier expressed surprise at his decision.

Afridi played in 10 games during the PSL 2017, and made 177 runs at 25.28 but it was his strike rate of 173.52 that helped his side out of many a precarious situations. He finished with two wickets at an economy rate of 6.75. The third PSL season will be played in 2018 while the Draft will be held in October 2017.
