Shahid Afridi reveals this will be his last season in the PSL tournament
After much speculation, it has finally been confirmed that legendary Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi will be featuring Quetta Gladiators in the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League.
In a video posted on Quetta Gladiators' social media accounts, Shahid Afridi expressed his delight over the move and also revealed his future plans.
"As you know, I have featured for almost all teams in the PSL but this will be my last season in the PSL and I am happy to be playing it with Quetta Gladiators," said the 44-year-old.
Afridi has been a part of three franchises before joining Quetta Gladiators. He featured for Peshawar Zalmi in the first two seasons before moving to Karachi Kings for PSL 3. After that, he moved to Multan Sultans where he played for three seasons.
The T20 World Cup winner, despite his age, has registered solid numbers in the PSL; he has played 50 matches in the six seasons of PSL, picking up 44 wickets with an economy rate of 6.97 and scoring 465 runs at a strike rate of 153.46.
Quetta Gladiators have already made some massive changes, signing Shahid Afridi and England's James Vince along with luring Iftikhar Ahmed away from Islamabad United.
