Peshawar – Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) will host Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 matches in its province as 70 grounds have been constructed in the province, Imran Khan responded to a question asked by journalists.
The PTI government in KP will welcome and make all arrangements for hosting the upcoming PSL matches in the KP province.
Chairman Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf said nearly 70 grounds and state-of-the-art stadiums in KP have so far been constructed and they will also carry out arrangements for hosting the 2018 PSL matches.
Earlier Imran Khan was heavily criticized upon his using slang language for the foreign cricketers but then he denied doing discrimination with the cricket because the words used by him were routine words in the terminologies of cricket, according to Imran Khan.
Then Chairman PSL, Najim Sethi also lashed out PTI Chairman, saying Imran has personal enmity with him as well as having political jealously with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that he would be benefited from the money earned from the game.
Recently, the Captain of Zalmi Darren Sammy has also issued a statement saying he is angry with Imran Khan over using discriminatory language and disrespecting them.
“We referred Renu Katta to a player who would both bowl and bat, but would not perform either way. These terms are not derogatory, they rather describe marginal players,” he explained.
Questioned about his opposition to hosting of PSL final in Lahore in contrast with his earlier stance on the event, the skipper said: “The situation before February 21 was different which is why I supported the idea of hosting the PSL final in Lahore, but the series of terror attacks in the country made me oppose the same thing.
Imran Khan argued will foreign teams come to Pakistan only by having witnessed the PSL final being played in Lahore. “They want peace in Pakistan to play cricket here, not just hosting of a final.”
