By on February 10, 2019

The fourth edition of Pakistan Super League is about to start. Only a few days are remaining in the grand opening of PSL 4. The opening ceremony will be held in the UAE on 14th February 2019. The excitement and the craziness for PSL4 have reached its peak.

More than 70 international cricketers are ready for their smashing performance in this season of PSL. The renowned players who have played previously for PSL, shared their best moments as well as expectations for PSL 4.

New Zealand’s Luke Ronchi who will be playing for Islamabad United shared his excitement level by saying,

“The energy in the city was amazing and it felt like we were part of a big festival.”

He further added,

“Winning the HBL PSL trophy for Islamabad United in Karachi is a memory that I will cherish for a long time. The game got pretty close for our liking in the end, but it was nice to see the fans getting to watch some exciting cricket.”

Our very own and Pakistan’s favourite Darren Sammy (from West Indies) – will be playing for Peshawar Zalmi – also shared his vision and emotions by saying,

“I have a very special relationship with Pakistan and every time I interact with Pakistani fans or play in front of them, it just fills my heart with so much joy.”

He continued,

“When we all took that first step with the HBL PSL 2017 final in Lahore, we knew we were doing something much more important than just playing a game of cricket. From that point onwards, we have seen a slow but very steady return of high-profile cricket to Pakistan.”

Sammy also appreciated the energy level and love from the Pakistani fans, he shared,

“Seeing young kids in Pakistan enjoying the game at the stadium, hopefully learning a thing or two from some of us cricketers, and then going on to be a part of the next generation of cricketers, that is just a beautiful feeling to have. I am just very glad that I was able to play a small but meaningful role in this entire process.”

Similarly, Ravi Bopara from England, who will be playing for Karachi Kings stated,

“The energy in Lahore last year was amazing. I cannot forget how the fans welcomed us with open arms and all of them – young and old – had an incredible passion for the game. I remember it rained a lot before our game against Zalmi and the organisers brought in helicopters to get the field ready. That is how much it meant to them,”

Another cricketer from EnglandLiam Dawson also shared his beautiful moments, he said,

“I had the pleasant experience of playing three games in Pakistan last year and I have to say that the crowds in Pakistan are just on another level. They obviously want more cricket back home so each game was a special experience for us as players.”

He continued,

“I remember having the option of heading back to Dubai after the play-off in Lahore and then flying back to Karachi for the final but once I got there and saw the way everything was organised, it just felt very safe and I stayed on. I am glad that I made that choice.”

It’s such a proud moment for Pakistan and cricket fans that the international players are contributing  in promoting a positive image of Pakistan across the globe.
