KARACHI – Pakistan cricket star Shahid Afridi has moved from Peshawar Zalmi to Karachi Kings as a player was finalised on Tuesday.
Afridi, who helped his team to victory in PSL’s second edition, will now play for Karachi Kings. He had already joined Karachi Kings as President soon after the league’s second edition ended earlier this year.
According to the deal finalised between the two franchises, Peshawar Zalmi will swap its picks in the gold and silver categories with Karachi Kings.
Kings have the third pick in both the categories while Zalmi have fifth since PSL draft rules are such that the team which came last gets the first pick in all categories and Zalmi had returned as the winners last year.
“Shahid is a world-class player and the entire Peshawar Zalmi family thanks him for his contributions to our team,” Javed Afridi, the owner of Peshawar Zalmi said. “He is like a brother and we wish him the very best of luck in this new journey.”
