Ali Tareen highlights the reasons for Sultans selecting Usman Qadir

Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Multan Sultans have gone for a completely new-look squad for the fifth edition of the glitzy tournament. Having always been condemned to second-last place in the six-team table since their entry into the competition in PSL 3, Sultans have opted for the services of local leg-spinner Usman Qadir this time around.

Usman, son of the legendary leggie Abdul Qadir, was recently picked for Pakistan’s T20I series in Australia but failed to get a chance to don the national jersey in the three games. While outlining the motivations behind Usman’s selection by the franchise, Sultans’ co-owner Ali Tareen took to Twitter to highlight the importance of incorporating a local leg-spinner in the mix.

Tareen also mentioned Usman’s much-hyped T20 skills since he has featured in Australia’s Big Bash League and usually plays in the shortest format. Tareen took a sarcastic line for his third reason with regards to selecting the 26-year-old in the PSL draft by joking about a photograph depicting Usman whispering in his ear.
