Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the seven-team of Pakistan Super League (PSL). On Monday PCB shocked the PSL fans when they announced the seventh team of PSL named as Mainstreamed Militants (MM).
It is the surprising news for the PSL fans. As the draft of PSL was announced on 12 November but this team is not included in that Draft.
Hamza Ali Abbasi is the current ambassador for the new team. He talked with media and said that “We wanted to keep everything secret until today. The plan to buy and launch the team was made (by the owners) silently and PCB too silently approved the inclusion of the team in the upcoming PSL almost silently for ‘Silence is also a form of expression.”
Mainstreamed Militants (MM) team launch was not only the surprising news but it’s also shocking news that this team is managed by defense analysts General (retired) Amjad Zohaib and General (retired) Faraz Awan and not by ex-cricketers.
The General Manager team Amjad Zohaib told that the owners of the team want to bring past militants into the national fold. He further said that some of the team members are being allowed to join national politics, remaining others should be allowed to play cricket.
He also said that “What better way to introduce them to the world than our own PSL, What better time t do it than 2018.”
Faraz Awan is the president of the team. He announced the top players on the team including Hafiz Waheed, Yasir Nawaz Jhangvi, and Uzair Hanfi.
He also said that the team will not pick any of the International players in this draft rather than Zimbabwe. The team president Faraz Awan also announced Zimbabwe‘s General Constantine Guveya Chiwengan a Major General S.B. Moyo as the franchise top Foreign picks.
The force commander of Zimbabwe Constantine Chiwenga is also surprised on the reveling of his PSL team. He asked a question that why a team was allowed to register in PSL as the PSL draft was announced and why they held a separate press to announce their plans.
When we asked about the team from the PCB chairman Najam Sethi then Hamza Ali Abbasi says that ”Silence is also a form of expression.”
The journalists and cricketers also objected that how to give the right to purchase the team without any proper bidding system.
