Pakistan Super League: 15 foreign players ready to play Lahore final

The three top teams of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) have issued a list of 15 foreign players willing to play the tournament's final in Lahore on March 5.

The players have also received their Pakistan visas after the three teams had selected them to be part of the final roster.

England's Ravi Bopara, playing with the Karachi Kings, also confirmed that he would travel to Lahore if the Kings win the third playoff.

Quetta Gladiator coach Moin Khan expressed confidence in his team's victory on March 5 and said the entire nation is happy with the decision.

"It is unfortunate that certain cricketers are not in favour of the decision," said Khan, adding the Sir Vivian Richards would also be visiting Lahore.

On Thursday, Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi confirmed that the team's foreign players are ready to play the final in Lahore.

Earlier, three English players of the Quetta Gladiators — Kevin Pietersen, Tymal Mills and Luke Wright —announced that they would not be participating in the PSL final.

The Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) had earlier advised players against travelling to Lahore.

PSL is also in the midst of replacing foreign commentators — including Danny Morrison, Alan Wilkins and Mel Jones — who have backed out from covering the final, while Ian Bishop’s contract is coming to an end.

The PSL management had instructed all teams to work on their own contingency plan in a scenario wherein their foreign players decide not to travel to Pakistan.
