Afridi announces first ever Peshawar Zalmi Club World Cup

Cricket fans have some more club cricket coming their way. Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Peshawar Zalmi will soon be organising the first ever Club World Cup in the country’s history.

Pakistan all-rounder and Peshawar Zalmi player Shahid Afridi announced the news on Twitter, saying that the championship would provide an international platform to players from around the world to showcase their talent.

10 teams from 10 countries will compete for the Club World Cup title.

Peshawar Zalmi CEO Javed Afridi earlier this month tweeted about the tournament and said that the championship would be held in the UAE.

Peshawar Zalmi was among the most popular franchises in the inaugural PSL edition held in the UAE in February 2016. However, Zalmi – led by Afridi – lost the two qualifiers to Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United which ended their run in the league.

The franchise has a new captain, West Indies’ Daren Sammy, who will lead the team in PSL 2017.
