PSL2 to feature WT20 hero Carlos Brathwaite: Sethi

LAHORE: Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi has stated that World T20 hero Carlo Brathwaite will feature in second edition of the mega league.

“More boost for PSL’s second edition as more big names give their consent,” Sethi told DawnNews.

He added that upon culmination of Caribbean Premier League (CPL), quite a few more of the “top guys” would be expected to sign up.

Brathwaite rose to fame when he hit four consecutive sixes in the last over as the West Indies stunned England to lift the 2016 World T20 title in India.

The Windies went into the last over needing 19 to win and with expert death bowler Ben Stokes handed the ball, it looked like England would see out the win.

But Brathwaite held his nerve to fire the Windies to an unlikely four-wicket win with two balls to spare, leaving Stokes devastated on the field.

Following the huge success of the inaugural edition of PSL in February this year, Sethi was confident about doing even better in its second edition in 2017, which he said will be a substantially improved one in terms of international signings and profits.

In an earlier interview with Dawn, Sethi said Pakistan cricket fans have every reason to be excited about PSL2 which may well see its final getting played in Lahore, hopefully in March next year.

Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard and Andre Fletcher are other cricketers from the West Indies who have given their consent to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to play in the second edition of the PSL.
