Kashmir Premier League (KPL) franchise Kotli Lions has chosen former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed as its icon player and will lead the team in the second edition of the KPL, scheduled for August this year.
While thanking franchise owners Khalid Zia and Faisal in a video message, the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy-winning captain said that he will join the Lions team in the next edition of the T20 league.
“I will represent Kotli Lions in this year’s KPL. I would like to thank franchise owners Khalid Zia and Faisal for selecting me as their icon player,” he said.
Announcing his availability for the second season, the Quetta Gladiators’ captain said: “We will try to make a strong team for this year and win the tournament. I’m ready for KPL live action, how about you?
It is worth mentioning here that the goalkeeper’s former batsman, Kamran Akmal, was leading the team in the first edition of the T20 league, where they won only one of the four games they played.
