ABU DHABI: Former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson coming Pakistan to take part in Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Quetta Gladiators manager Azam Khan confirmed the news of Watson coming to Karachi to take part in the Pakistan leg of the tournament, sources said.
The news comes after Watson’s Gladiators team-mate DJ Bravo also confirmed he will be coming to Pakistan. Watson’s trip to Pakistan also gives fans here a huge name in cricket to look forward to, after former South Africa and Lahore Qalandars batsman AB de Villiers pulled out of the rest of the tournament with a back injury.
“Watson had asked for $0.3 million to play in Pakistan, however, he later said he will come and play without any compensation,” Khan shared.
Watson will arrive with other international players in Karachi on Thursday.
Moreover, the Gladiators administration said Watson will take part in the game against Karachi Kings on Sunday, March 10.
