The former Pakistani cricketer, and fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, expressed his disappointment over the performance of Lahore Qalandars in the PSL 6. He said it’ll be better for both the owners and the league if the ownership of the franchise is changed.
Akhtar stated that he is willing to buy the franchise from the current owners, the Rana brothers.
The 45-year-old said that the team needs an overhaul because no one in the franchise is serious about winning the PSL trophy.
“I told Rana brothers to sell me their team. I will rename it as Lahore express and change the management. These owners and management aren’t serious about cricket and are wasting the Lahore brand,” said Akhtar.
The Lahore Qalandars have only qualified for the playoffs once in the six seasons and have finished at the bottom of the table four times. Its best run in the PSL came last season when they qualified for the final for the first time in their history, ultimately losing to the Karachi Kings in a highly anticipated match.
In the PSL 6, the team once again finished outside the top 4, despite having world-class players such as Mohammad Hafeez, Shaheen Afridi, Fakhar Zaman, and Rashid Khan.
