He also informed that we also submit a proposal to Pakistan Cricket Board for organizing the match in China instead of UAE.

Muhammad Akram, the director of cricketing affairs for Peshawar Zalmi, said that the team’s coaching staff will travel to China for a seminar to kick off collaboration with the Chinese board and hold coaching programs subsequently to identify and groom young Chinese talent.

He also revealed that a China Zalmi team will participate in tournaments organised by the franchise under its “Global Zalmi” initiative with representation from 25 clubs from across the globe.

Former Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Zhang Chunxiang was also present in the ceremony.

Foreign Security Experts In Karachi

Good security measures during the previous PSL campaign was the deciding factor why more international players agreed to join the third edition of the competition.

A security consultant has arrived in Pakistan to improve the security arrangements in Karachi, since two to four PSL matches are to be held at the Karachi National Stadium.

Reg Dickason of Eastern Star International works with ICC, FICA and other various international cricket boards. He was received at the airport by Pakistan Cricket Board’s head of security Col Azam.

A PCB official claimed that Reg was particularly impressed by Pakistan’s efforts to regain world’s confidence by holding such an event at its home soil; this is the reason why he helped Pakistan in security arrangements made for the World XI tour.

Dickason is yet to talk to the local media. He is scheduled to visit Karachi’s National Stadium, which will be followed by his meeting with IG Sindh and CM Murad Ali Shah later in the day.
