PSL Franchises Are Competing to Get Imran Khan’s Endorsement

Widely regarded as one of the best cricket captains who led Pakistan, Imran Khan seems to be the center of attention in cricket even after his retirement. It seems that all of Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises are extremely eager to make Imran Khan become a part of their team.

In the past few days, the retired cricketer-politician has been presented with team jerseys by the owners of PSL Franchises.

Who Gets Imran Khan

While there is no apparent word on which team Khan supports in the PSL, it is evident that Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi want his support.

Recently, the 1992 World Cup winning captain was presented with two PSL team jerseys.

Javed Afridi, the owner of Peshawar Zalmi, gifted Imran Khan his team’s shirt, while a Karachi Kings shirt was also gifted to the retired cricketer by Salman Iqbal of Karachi Kings.

Here are the pictures of Khan receiving both shirts:

Saj Sadiq, a renowned sports journalist, also highlighted the efforts made by PSL franchise owners by tweeting:

Lahore Qalanders, a rather under-performing side so-far, also joined the battle by presenting Imran Khan with a signed bat. Qalanders’ CEO presented Imran Khan with a signed bat himself:

Peshawar Zalmi CEO showed some great spirit by announcing that Haier and Ruba Pakistan will donate home appliances to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital in Peshawar.

About Imran Khan

Imran Khan played his last cricket match for Pakistan back in 1992. He took the relatively weaker Pakistani team of 92 and turned them into world beaters at the World Cup.

Pakistan won their only ODI World Cup under Imran’s captaincy in 1992. Imran Khan, over his 21-year long career, represented Pakistan in 88 test and 175 ODI matches.

Support from the legendary cricketing icon for PSL teams will surely prove handy in increasing the fan-base of the respective franchise. That’s probably why everyone is trying to get the legend’s blessings in the run-up to the next PSL.
