Former English captain Nasser Hussain has cleared that he will not be a part of the commentary panel for the upcoming season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). It was reported that he might be doing commentary during the seventh season of the franchise league.
Nasser also mentioned that he would be working in the upcoming ICC Women’s World Cup next. The World Cup is scheduled to take place in New Zealand in March. New Zealand will take on West Indies in the opening game of the tournament.
He further added that he hopes to do a commentary job in the PSL at some point in the future. He is currently doing his job in the ongoing Ashes series where England suffered a humiliating loss after losing the first three matches in a record span of 12 days.
Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq quoted Hussain on Twitter where he confirmed that he won’t be a part of the upcoming PSL. “Rumours that I am commentating on PSL7 are not true as I will most likely be working on the Women’s World Cup. However I hope to commentate on the Pakistan Super League at some point in the future,” the former England skipper said.

Pakistan Super League is set to take place from January 27
The seventh edition of the PSL will start on January 27. The first match will be between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans at the National Stadium, Karachi. The PSL will miss players from South Africa as the cricket board has denied issuing NOC to players.
Lahore Qalandars are going to win prize money of PKR ten million if they manage to succeed in this edition of the tournament. Bank of Punjab and Atif Rana, the CEO of the Qalandars signed an agreement for the same. The event was attended by former Pakistani player Mohammad Hafeez, several key people of the Qalandars team, and the officials from BOP.
Mohammad Hafeez retired from international cricket at the start of this year. He played for Qalandars during the last season of the PSL and will again feature in the upcoming season. Hafeez made 271 runs in ten matches in the last edition of the PSL at an average of 33.88 and a strike rate of 138.27.
