Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman Imran Khan will not be mentoring Peshawar Zalmi. According to PTI’s media cell, the World Cup winning captain will not take part in the inaugural edition of the PSL in any capacity.
“We issued a statement the very next day that the PTI chairman will not be mentoring Peshawar Zalmi, or for that matter any other team in the PSL,”
Earlier, Javaid Afridi the team owner has signalled that Imran Khan will probably be mentoring Peshawar Zalmi on the behest of Shahid Afridi, however this has been laid to rest now as PTI has clearly stated that the party chairman will not be part of any time in upcoming Pakistan Super League.
In related news there has been some shuffle in the line up of Peshawar Zalmi, which has dropped Chris Jordan while signing in the Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait. The Shahid Afridi led team will also have the services of Pakistan pacers Umar Gul and Imran Khan Jr, West Indian big hitting all-rounder Darren Sammy, left-arm fast bowlers Wahab Riaz and Junaid Khan, former T20I captain Muhammad Hafeez and explosive Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal.
