Pakistan captain, Babar Azam is aiming to achieve his dream of scoring a century in HBL Pakistan Super League, in the upcoming eighth edition.

“It is a dream for me to score a century in the HBL PSL as I already have two T20I centuries and a few more in different leagues. I am positive about achieving the three-figure mark in this HBL PSL, and hoping the right time comes soon for a big score,” said Babar in a press release by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Babar is also excited to lead a new franchise, Peshawar Zalmi, after having played for Karachi Kings for last six seasons.

“A new franchise, and a new season, this HBL PSL edition holds added significance for me and I am looking forward to making a good start in this journey,” he said.

“Sharing the dressing room with different players throughout – one season with Islamabad United and six seasons with Karachi Kings – has helped me a lot. You learn a great deal when you interact with other players, getting to know about their mindset, training regime and the way they handle different situations,” he added.

2021 champions Multan Sultans will host reigning champions Lahore Qalandars in the opening match on 13 February, while Peshawar Zalmi will travel to Karachi where they will take on Karachi Kings on 14 February.
