Babar Azam will represent Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 8th edition

Pakistan Cricket team captain Babar Azam will represent Peshawar Zalmi in the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) next year.

On Friday night Peshawar Zalmi Chairman Javed Afridi welcomed Babar in a tweet in Pashto. He wrote, “Welcome to the Zalmi family.”

Babar was part of Karachi Kings in the previous editions of PSL. The Chairman of Karachi Kings Salman Iqbal has also recently confirmed that Babar will not be part of his franchise in the next edition of PSL.  Salman has wished Babar all the best requesting him to not play cover drive against Karachi, in humour.

It should be noted that earlier Babar Azam was associated with Karachi Kings which he had also captained in the last season but unfortunately his team performed very badly in the tournament and hardly won a single match.

Babar Azam is the highest run-scorer in PSL. He has scored 2413 runs in 66 innings of 68 matches at an average of 42.33. His strike rate has been 121.13. He has been not out nine times.

In PSL he has scored 23 half-centuries and his highest score is 90. Babar has also faced the threat of zero six times. He has hit 259 fours and 37 sixes in PSL.
