While big names from the cricket world seem uncertain, the emerging PSL 2018 debutant, JP Duminy is all set to tour Pakistan with his Pakistan Super League’s team.
It’s impossible not to have any PSL 2018 news on board. The cricket league has reached heights of popularity with its thrilling PSL matches and exciting rumours, pouring every now and then.
Big names backed-off due to English Cricket Board’s strict policy on travelling to Pakistan. Eoin Morgan, Jason Roy and Sam Billings are not going to be part of Pakistan Super League matches, which are going to be held in Pakistan.
The cricketers won’t be able to participate in play-off matches and finale, which are going to be held in Lahore city and Karachi, respectively.
The first player to refuse from coming to Pakistan was Alex Hales, from Islamabad United. On the other hand, JP Duminy from the same team is ready to travel to Pakistan.
Duminy made his PSL debut this year and immediately won hearts of PSL 2018 fans with his statement. The Islamabad United’s player said, “I will be coming to Pakistan with Islamabad United’s squad for the playoffs if needed and the final in Karachi if we reach it.”
The player was asked about his feedback regarding cricket standard in PSL 2018, upon which he said that he thoroughly enjoyed the cricket league.
“It’s definitely a high standard of cricket. You have seen the matches, the way they end, I thoroughly enjoyed the standard. It shows the success which Pakistan international team had last year,” the player said.
While this is a great news for Pakistan, the uncertainty is still prevalent among famous international players.
Apart from above mentioned English players, the mighty cricket players, Kevin Pieterson and Shane Watson expressed their desire to play in the playoffs and finale but haven’t declared their verdict upon the decision of travelling to Pakistan.
