DUBAI: Karachi Kings all-rounder Ravi Bopara has announced that if his team reaches final tonight then he will travel to Lahore to play the final.
Bopara is representing Karachi Kings in the tournament and was the second highest scorer in PSL 2016 after Lahore Qalandar’s Umar Akmal.
The news comes after Peshawar Zalmi overseas players Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Dawid Malan, Samit Patel and Chris Jordan have already agreed to come to Pakistan if their team qualifies for the final.
Earlier, all major overseas players of Quetta Gladiators, namely Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, Rilee Rossouw and Tymal Mills, withdrew from the final following the Gladiators’ victory against Peshawar Zalmi in the first playoff, leaving many wondering whether the team would have any foreign player at all for the grand finale.
However, Quetta Gladiators and the other two remaining teams, Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi, have nominated 16 overseas players from the earlier list of 54 players for the PSL final.
