Pakistan Super League 2019 is almost coming to its end, but for Pakistanis, the real action is just about to begin. The tournament will have its last leg in Karachi, Pakistan beginning from March 9th.
Part of the reason everyone is super excited about PSL 4 in Karachi is that they’ll get to see their favorite foreign players in action. Speaking of international cricket stars, some of them have already started showing their excitement for coming to the country.
Here’s what each of them had to say about their tour to Pakistan.
Darren Sammy asked Pakistanis to come out in large numbers in support of the league. He also said he was super excited to come back to Pakistan for another round of cricket.
Karachi, guess what … PSL is coming to you, I am super excited to turn up in Karachi. So, my message is turn up and come out and support. It’s going to be a big show.
Dwayne Bravo said that it was a great feeling to come back to Pakistan because it has been a while since he was here.
It’s a great feeling, I am personally looking forward to going back to Pakistan because it’s been a while that I went there. I am super excited, we have a big fan following, whether we play in Karachi or Lahore. So, the Gladiators are on their way. I hope all our Quetta fans will support the song I have sung for them and support us.

Sir Vivan Richards said that he always enjoys coming to Pakistan and this year it’s no different. He also said that he will enjoy coming to Pakistan more this year because the current PM of the country is a great friend of his.
I have always enjoyed going to Pakistan, I now enjoy it more, especially because the individual now in charge of Pakistan has been a great friend and that is Imran Khan. We have competed against each other many times. I have always enjoyed going to Pakistan. “Javed Miandad is my best mate there. I have lots and lots of fans and to have DJ with us, is great. This means a lot and to just spread the words as we are ambassadors of the game will be awesome. This (cricket) is our game and I am sure that it will be highly enjoyable. I am ever so moon, with DJ on the tour with us.
New Zealand’s Colin Munro will be touring Pakistan for the first time ever. He said that this makes it very exciting for him.
It’s going to be a pretty amazing especially playing in front of a packed crowd. Obviously, there was not much cricket there of international flavor, so just trying to get over there and put a good show. The HBL PSL has been awesome. Personally, I haven’t sort of delivered as per my standards, but as a team, we are getting on the board at the right team and hopefully will finish with a bang and make it to the play-offs at the right time.
Colin Ingram, who currently has the highest individual score of HBL PSL history said that he really wanted to play in front of the home fans.
It was one of those things we missed out last year. We played well last year but lost the Eliminator in Lahore and didn’t get to play in the home city. We know people are excited and it’s going to be a great moment. It’s going to be a great event in Karachi. My message is to enjoy and take the moment. They (Karachi fans) have been desperate for the return of cricket and there has always been challenging circumstances. We look forward and hopefully we play well.
