Just a couple of months back rumors of two cricketers from the Chinese cricket team joining PSL franchise Peshawar Zalmi started circling the web and media in Pakistan.
Today this has turned into a reality and Peshawar Zalmi has officially announced cricketers Jian Li and Yufie Zhang will be playing with the Zalmi in season 3 of PSL.
In a formal meeting, chairman of Peshawar Zalmi, Javed Afridi said that the Pakistan and China collaboration is more than just in the industry, technology, and scientific research. This exchange of culture through sports will further strengthen the bond the two countries have.
The Peshawar Zalmi coaching team will now travel to China and will officially kick the collaboration by not only signing up the two cricketers but also provide coaching programs in the country to groom young talent from China.
The third edition of PSL is set to return this February and it will be a bigger and better event than before. The league has already added a brand new franchise ‘Multan Sultans’ which will increase the excitement of the tournament and add more competition.
