The T20 specialist confirmed his availability to the league management on Sunday after getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The league, which will start from December 19 to January 21, had Afridi as a fourth Icon player following Windies’ Andre Russel, England skipper Eoin Morgan and South Africa’s David Miller. Each of these cricketing greats will represent one of the five franchise teams set to take part in the league.
In his decades-long cricketing career, Afridi has always been deemed as a superstar among the cricketing fans and fraternity. He has starred in over a dozen T20 leagues around the globe, always leaving an impact on the game. Including PSL, Afridi is currently involved in over half a dozen shortest format leagues around the world, refusing to let his growing age be a problem.
