This loss leaves a significant void within the cricket community: Lahore Qalandars management
Tareen acquired Multan Sultans alongside his nephew, Ali Khan Tareen, who is the son of influential Pakistani businessman and politician, Jahangir Tareen. Apart from Multan Sultans, Lahore Qalandars also came forward to pay tribute to Alamgir Tareen in light of his sudden demise. It was clear that the Tareen family had roots in the South Punjab region of Pakistan, and acquiring the ownership of Multan Sultans made sense as Multan is the capital of the south region.
"Lahore Qalandars management is shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Mr Alamgir Tareen. This loss leaves a significant void within the cricket community. We offer our heartfelt support to his family and Multan Sultans as they navigate this challenging time. May the departed soul rest in peace, and may their loved ones find strength and solace in the memories shared and the legacy left behind," the statement from Qalandars read.
It is worth noting that Qalandars defeated Sultans in the final of the PSL 2023 to clinch the coveted title. The sudden demise left the Pakistan cricket fraternity stunned as the entire country mourns the passing of an esteemed businessman.
