Cricket fans can expect exciting news as Peshawar Zalmi confirm the signing of rising pacer Aimal Khan to their roster for the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine. Let’s go into the details of this momentous breakthrough. Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq will miss the full PSL season due to national responsibilities. As a partial substitute, Peshawar Zalmi has signed Aimal Khan, a talented young cricketer. Let’s continue with the story and find out more details. I hope you are excited to know more. You have to, if you are a Zalmi fan, a pure Zalmi fan.
Changes in the team
In addition to Aimal Khan’s participation, Zalmi has made other strategic changes. They’ve enlisted Shamar Joseph to fill the vacuum left by England’s Gus Atkinson.
In addition, Waqar Salamkheil is joining the team as a silver-category pick, taking over for Lungi Ngidi, who will not be present for the whole season.
Recognizing the partial availability of certain players, Zalmi has made additional roster changes. Khurram Shahzad, for example, will be partially available, pushing Arshad Iqbal to take his spot in the silver category.
Similarly, Gus Atkinson replaces Noor Ahmed, who is unavailable to join Peshawar Zalmi owing to international obligations.
Aimal Khan’s career in a nutshell
The 19-year-old fast bowler from Charsadda is not new to PSL. Previously, he had represented the Quetta Gladiators. Now, Peshawar Zalmi has picked him. This means the youngster will play for his home team for the first time in HBL PSL.
He doesn’t have that much experience in T20s, or Pakistan’s domestic circuit. The young lad has still a lot to learn.
Most of his career has been with the U19 team. Hence, Peshawar Zalmi will be a big learning curve for him. Aimal can apply a lot of his lessons if the Zalmis give him a chance. Let’s see how things turn out for the young talent.
