Peshawar Zalmi Vs KKR Match turns out to be fake call

Indian Premier League franchise Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday rejected reports that the Bollywood superstar offered to hold a three-match series with Pakistan Super League champions Peshawar Zalmi.

“KKR won’t be playing any unauthorised games/leagues as some false reports are claiming. No such communication happened from our end,” the franchise said on Twitter.

The refutation came hours after Zalmi CEO Javed Afridi claimed SRK, who is the co-owner of KKR, called him to congratulate over his team’s victory and suggested a three-match series at a neutral venue.

While confirming SRK’s offer, Afridi revealed both team owners will talk to their respective governments regarding the series. “Shah Rukh has asked me to talk to the Pakistani government and he will talk to the Indian government himself,” he said.

However, denying the reports, KKR CEO Venky Mysore told India Today that SRK was not even aware that any such league was happening in Pakistan or Dubai.
