Wahab Riaz, the skipper of Peshawar Zalmi, greeted Babar Azam’s entry into the squad. He said Babar Azam should be given more chances to improve captaincy in the PSL.
“It is beneficial for us that the captain of Pakistan is now also leading Peshawar. We have a good opportunity to play under his captaincy. Not only me, but all the players will try to prove their worth,”
Wahab Riaz has great expectations for Peshawar Zalmi’s top performance under Babar Azam’s captaincy.
In addition to this, Peshawar Zalmi can do wonders under Babar’s leadership. The pacer claimed in an exclusive interview with GeoSuper.tv that Babar’s appointment as Peshawar Zalmi’s captain will be a positive contributor to the team as a whole.
Wahab Riaz is ready to learn a lot from Babar Azam along with other members of Peshawar Zalmi. He is really hopeful that the Peshawar Zalmi team will perform better under the captaincy of Pakistani captain Babar Azam.
The last time Peshawar Zalmi won the PSL title was in 2017, and Wahab is really confident about this season’s win. At that time, he lifted the trophy with Kamran Akmal, who will be absent from this year’s PSL as a player.
Wahab on Kamran Akmal’s New Role in PSLWahab will miss Kamran Akmal a lot this season. He will be working as a batting mentor for Peshawar Zalmi. This role is very different than playing for Zalmi, which he has done since the start of PSL. Kamran and Wahab shared a lot of memories and bonds in PSL. Wahab will be missing all those moments he shares with Kamran Akmal.
Kamran Akmal is a big name in PSL, and his name is in every PSL record.”It is evident that Kamran Akmal holds the record for most centuries in the PSL. Having played for Peshawar from the beginning, his departure will certainly be felt. I have had the privilege of playing alongside him and we have a strong connection. Kamran’s experience and guidance will undoubtedly play a significant role in shaping Babar Azam’s performance in the PSL.” All the fans will be desperate to see Babar Azam’s performance in this season for his new team. Wahab Riaz and Babar Azam will start their PSL campaign in a match against Karachi Kings on February 14.
