Pakistan Super League: Peshawar Zalmi will be represented by Kamran Akmal, according to him. In the Pakistan Super League’s upcoming seventh season. The seasoned campaigner has cleared up all of the franchise’s misunderstandings. He is now prepared to work for them. In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Zalmi stated unequivocally that he would leave Peshawar. If he wanted a better bargain, he could. The board’s choice to marginalize senior members like him in the draft had irritated him. At this point in his career, Zalmi stated that he does not intend to return to the national team. However, he stated that in domestic events such as the PSL, he still has a lot to give.
“It’s about the more money, I could have left Zalmi long ago. But they are like a family and I never imagined leaving them. It’s the process that basically was surprising and how the board disregards the senior cricketers. It’s hurtful as it’s a domestic tournament and I am not done yet,” Kamran Akmal said.
Pakistan Super League: “That was my passion for the game that kept me going, not my performance. I’m not looking at the international level because I know I don’t deserve it, but at the PSL level, I believe I deserve a lot. My pride and joy is Zalmi, and I will be playing for them,” Akmal added.
Lastly, Kamran Akmal was picked in the silver category in the recently concluded PSL Player Draft 2022. Akmal was not pleased with his demotion from the gold category. Thus, decided to give up his spot. While speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Zalmi’s head coach Mohammad Akram confirmed. They had saved a right-to-match card for Akmal. He even revealed that it was their strategy to pick him from the silver category.
Pakistan Super League: “Because draft defines who you pick at what level, we chose him in the silver category as part of our approach. We had the right-to-match card with us, which we stored for him in case he was picked by another side. As a result, having a method to protect your player ensures that he is not financially damaged,” Kamran Akmal said.
