KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi on Sunday applauded the foreign players for coming to Pakistan to feature in the final phase of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The 39-year-old is representing Multan Sultans in the fourth edition of HBL PSL and is likely to be in action against Lahore Qalandars on Monday (today).He said that the foreign players featuring in the league will always be credited for helping the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in the revival of international cricket in the country.

“When international cricket will be fully revived in Pakistan, these foreign players will be credited for playing their part,” Afridi said. “We salute them for touring Pakistan and appreciate their contribution.”

Afridi hoped that more and more international cricket will come to Pakistan.“These PSL matches and the few series we have hosted since 2015, have proved that Pakistan is a safe country, the people here are peace-loving and they want to watch cricket on their grounds,” he said.

“I hope more teams will come to Pakistan and our isolation will soon be over.”The all-rounder termed arrangements for the matches at National Stadium as “outstanding”.Afridi also praised security personnel for their excellent arrangements.“The security arrangements are outstanding and I salute all those involved in providing high-profile security,” said Afridi.
