LAHORE: Captain Angelo Mathews is one of the three Sri Lankan players who have so far showed their interests in playing for first edition of Pakistan Super League in 2016, Doha, claim local media reports.
The 28-year old right all-rounder is the third Sri Lankan player to agree for PSL appearance, as before him, Tilkaratne Dilshan and left arm slogger Thisara Parera have also shown interest in playing for League..
Not only Lankan stars, PSL has allured T20 specialists from West Indies.
According to reports made public by PCB, the West Indian quartet of Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree are among the most sought-after T20 players and feature in various leagues around the world. After their expression of interest, the four are almost certain to dazzle in Doha as well.
‘Negotiations on with Gayle, McCullum and others’
The PCB is hoping to rope in some mega stars to add further glitz to the opening edition of the PSL.
West Indian opener Chris Gayle — arguably the biggest draw in the shortest format — is still on the radar and a PCB official confirmed that talks were in progress with the Jamaican.
“We know the worth of the superstars in the circuit, Gayle is definitely a top-ranked player and we haven’t given up on anyone else yet either,” PCB official said.
