Karachi Kings have brought in the English player Owais Shah for the rest of the Pakistan Super League as players leave for their respective countries for their international duties. Shah will look to help out the Karachi side in their bid to qualify for the playoffs of the inaugural season of PSL.
While talking to Khaleej Times, Owais said PSL is a great initiative by the PCB and they will reap its rewards in the future as the young lot of players will definitely learn a lot staying and playing alongside these greats of the game such as the likes of Viv Richards, Shane Watson, Kevin Pietersen and many more. He stressed the importance of the league and stated that this league will unearth new greats for Pakistan.
“Starting Pakistan Super League is a great initiative by Pakistan Cricket Board and it is well received everywhere.”
“Since the tournament has big names like Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle, Shane Watson and Shakibal Hasan, they would inspire young Pakistani cricketers.
“Their presence will be great inspiration for the youngsters. The cricket-mad country can unearth new Imran Khans, Javed Miandads, Wasim Akrams, Waqar Younises and last but not the least Shahid Afridis.
He added that the tournament will promote the soft image of Pakistan and he is hopeful that in the future the league will take place in Pakistan which will be a real boost for the country.
“It is the best platform to groom players and attract them to healthy activities. The PSL may help to solve the terror-related problems in Pakistan.”
There will be nothing like that if Pakistan solves security issues and stage a tournament like this at home side. It will be a real boost to the game in the country.”
