The Lahore Qalandars outfit is one of the strongest teams on paper in the ongoing edition of the PSL. One of their key strengths of their team this season is their overseas player’s power. One of them is the Caribbean spin wizard, Sunil Narine. In a recent conversation with Geo.tv, the spinner spoke about his aspirations and the plans for the T20 league. He was clear in saying that his intent is to play selfless and fearless cricket. He mentioned that he is not having any personal aims as such.
He is keen on doing well for the team. Narine was not a part of the inaugural season and looked quite excited for his debut season with the prominent T20 league. He humbly said that the franchise had made efforts to make him feel at home too.
“I don’t have any personal aim. Whatever the team requires of me to do, hopefully, I can do the best for the team and just keep enjoying the game and hopefully, we could win games. It is going pretty good (experience of playing PSL), it is my first time playing in Pakistan Super League, I am excited and enjoying it, especially with Lahore, it’s a good franchise and they are making me feel at home,” said Sunil Narine.
He praised the PSL calling it a good league. The Trinidad and Tobago spinner is sharing the dressing room with one of the most popular spinners of Pakistani team – Yasir Shah. He noted Yasir as a quality bowler and admitted that his presence has been quite helpful too.
“It (PSL) is a good league, all the T20 leagues are good. I think the environment in this league is very good. Hopefully, it could continue and go from strength to strength. He (Yasir) is a very good bowler, he is a very attacking spinner, and gets a lot of wickets, his presence helps me, it is nice bowling with him,” quoted the mystery spinner.
He was optimistic about the team’s chances in the league. He reckons that the team is just one good win away from getting their all blocks aligned. He looked impressed with the young players in the line up. He urged the fans to keep backing them in the tournament.
“They (young and emerging players) in the team are exciting, they are interested (in learning), and they love the game of cricket. It makes it a lot easier, guys are enjoying the atmosphere and just playing cricket – the game they love – it makes it so much easier. Keep supporting us, and hopefully we can bring some victories for you guys,” he concluded.
