Karachi Kings President Shahid Khan Afridi made the announcement during a press conference in Karachi’s Pearl Continental Hotel. Speaking to media alongside Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal, team director Rashid Latif, Afridi, who recently joined the team, maintained that he wants to enjoy his game so he thinks Imad should lead the team.
Speaking on the pres meet, Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal said:
“But we must thank God and people of Karachi for supporting us in this task. PSL has revolutionised our cricket in many ways and today a number of our top cricketing stars either got fame because of PSL or were discovered during the league.”
Salman Iqbal, who is also the CEO and President of ARY Digital Network, announced “Street Kings Foundation”, an entity which will work with Shahid Afridi Foundation for identifying and nurturing the new talent.
