Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi announced that two cricketers from Turkey would participate in the fourth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Mr. Afridi praised on Thursday the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, “who aims to develop good relations with Turkey.”
“I welcome the vision of Imran Khan, who wants to build good relations with Turkey. This year, we’re bringing in 2 Turkish cricketers who will be part of the Peshawar Zalmi team for @ thePSLt20, “he said.
The Zalmi Foundation organized a cricket camp in Ankara.
“Ankara Kriket Sport Külübü Derneği ran a cricket camp with the Zalm Foundation, which invited emerging cricketers from across the country, and Peshawar Zalmi wants to promote cricket in Turkey by developing a strategy with the Ankara Sports Club Association,” said he.
This is not the first time that Zalmi has given players the opportunity to play the Crick-Minnows. In the last league Zalmi had selected two Chinese players.
In response to Afridi’s tweet, Turkish ambassador to Islamabad Mustafa Yurdakul said interest in cricket had risen in Turkey.
“The interest in #Cricket is growing slowly in Turkey, but in concrete terms, thanks to our fruitful cooperation with Javed Afridi and Peshawar Zalmi,” tweeted the ambassador.
