Peshawar Zalmi rope in Sikandar Raza amid exodus of foreign players

Peshawar Zalmi rope in Sikandar Raza amid exodus of foreign players

Sikandar Raza has joined Peshawar Zalmi's squad ahead of their semi-final clash against Multan Sultans on Tuesday.

The Zimbabwean all-rounder has been picked in the silver category to boost the Zalmi line-up, which has been jolted by the departure of five of its overseas players due to the coronavirus threat.

Sikandar, 33, has a wealth of experience in the shortest format, having played 102 T20 games and was part of Karachi Kings' outfit in last year's PSL. He recently struck two half-centuries across the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh.

Sikandar's inclusion in the Zalmi squad alongside Daren Sammy gives the team management the option of fielding two overseas cricketers in their playing XI in the semi-final.

Elsewhere, Lahore Qalandars have picked Abid Ali and Agha Salman in the silver category to make way for the outgoing trio of Chris Lynn, David Wiese and Seekkuge Prasanna.

Abid, who has represented Pakistan in three Tests and four ODIs, is yet to make his PSL debut while Salman has played for Qalandars previously and also featured in the inaugural Global T20 Canada tournament.

The replacements have been approved by the Event Technical Committee which comprises PCB CEO Wasim Khan, Bazid Khan, Marina Iqbal, Sameer Khosa and Dr. Sohail Saleem.
