On Saturday, the veteran all-rounder of Pakistan, Shahid Afridi was revealed as the icon player for Qalandars in the upcoming T10 league.
Shahid Afridi has always been a massive player in the franchise cricket. He is still on top of his game, delivering the goods more often than not across the globe. Recently, he displayed high-quality cricketing skills in Lanka Premier League for Galle Gladiators who qualified for the finals.
“The biggest news today that I would like share with you is that for the next season, Shahid Afridi will be our icon player,” said Atif Rana.
Afridi also expressed gratitude in joining the franchise for the next edition of the 10-over competition.
“I am really honoured to become a part of the Lahore Qalandars franchise,” said Afridi. “League cricket is not just about playing one month of high-quality cricket. I believe the core purpose of the competition is to nurture the young talent. In that regard, I think there is no franchise better than Lahore Qalandars because they’ve done a lot of work off the field in bringing forward the young talent.”
The fourth edition of the Abu Dhabi T20 league will start next year from January 28.
