Multan Sultans’ all-rounder Shahid Afridi has stated that he might be making his last HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) appearance next season.   

Afridi also expressed the desire of playing for Quetta Gladiators if Multan’s owner, Alamgir Khan Tareen, gives him permission to leave the franchise.

“It’s possible that this [season seven] might be my last appearance in PSL. Alamgir bhai is a really nice person and if he allows me to leave, my wish is to play my last PSL season with Nadeem Omar bhai’s team Quetta Gladiators,” said Afridi while talking to local media on Monday.

Few days back, Quetta’s owner Nadeem Omar had also given a statement on similar lines.

“We are hopeful that Shahid Afridi will be part of Quetta Gladiators in HBL PSL 7. We will be really happy if that happens,” said Omar.

“Afridi played a key part in the promotion of the Kashmir Premier League. Despite being unfit in the final, he fought hard and led his team to the title,” he added.

The next season of HBL PSL is likely to start in January, 2022.
