(Pak Destiny) Retired all-rounder Shahid Afridi is likely to join Karachi Kings.
Official sources told Pak Destiny that Afridi quit Peshawar Zalmi, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise, after a meeting with Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal who offered him a lucrative package.
Earlier, Afridi announced through twitter: “I’m announcing my end of service as president and player of Peshawar Zalmi Team due to my personal reasons.” He also conveyed his best wishes to Peshawar Zalmi, who were crowned PSL winners last month.
Zalmi’s owner Javed Afridi was unaware of the development.
The 36-year-old star quit Tests in 2010 and ODI cricket after the 2015 World Cup but still skippered the Pakistan Twenty20 team at the 2016 world championships in India.
Salman Iqbal, also owner of ARY, is reportedly desperate to have a name like Afridi after flop shows of his team in last two seasons under the leadership of Shoaib Malik and Sangakara. – Pak Destiny
