As the Pakitan Super League inches closer to the knockout rounds, a number of foreign players have shown their discomfort in visiting Pakistan for the elimination round and the finals which Lahore and Karachi have been set to host.
However, Peshawar Zalmi’s one foreign player in the form of England‘s Chris Jordan has made it clear that he will travel to Pakistan If his team manages to reach the playoff round of the league. Jordan had visited Pakistan for the last year’s finals as well.
Will never forget my last experience
Jordan while speaking to Geo.tv remembered their last time in the country and said, he had a great time in Pakistan. According to Jordan, there was immense passion in Pakistan for the game and he looks forward to entertaining the fans again. “I had a great time in Pakistan. All the fans in Lahore were excellent for us. They cheered us on every ball. It was my first visit to Pakistan, the passion there is immense. I’m looking forward to going there again and to providing some entertainment,” 29-year old Jordan told Geo.tv.
Jordan felt that judging the ones who have wished not to go to Pakistan will be wrong and suggested that it was their personal decision. “The decision [to visit Pakistan] is individual for everyone. We don’t know anyone’s circumstances, so we can’t judge,” said the bowler. Remembering his last night in Lahore, the bowler said that the experience was second to none and he will never forget it.
After beating the Karachi Kings, Darren Sammy led Zalmi needs to win their final encounter to keep themselves in the top 4 of the table which will make them the eventual contender of the playoffs.
Once the PSL returns to Pakistan for the knockout games, one thing’s for sure, there won’t be empty chairs in the stadiums.
