Peshawar Zalmi donate 10 percent of win bonus to Imran Khan’s hospital

Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi on Wednesday announced to donate 10 percent of win bonus to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital Peshawar.

Rests of the matches of PSL were played in the United Arab Emirates.

The hospital was founded by Pakistan’s former cricket hero Imran Khan who came under harsh criticism for his controversial remarks against the foreign players who played the final in Lahore representing Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators.

A couple of days after the final, 1992 World Cup wining captain appeared to belittle Darren Sammy and other foreign players in his meeting with journalists.

Darren Sammy was the captain of Peshawar Zalmi who led West Indies to two T20 World Cup victories.

Imran Khan had also opposed the idea of holing the final of the tournament in Lahore citing security concerns in the wake of deadly suicide attack in the provincial capital that killed over a dozen people.
