Pakistan Super League (PSL) team Peshawar Zalmi has confirmed the signing of Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Shakib, a highly sought-after player, recently led Fortune Barishal in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Although Fortune Barishal was eliminated from the BPL after losing to Rangpur Riders in the eliminator, Shakib had a successful run in the tournament. He scored 375 runs in 13 matches and took 10 wickets.
Shakib will be joining Peshawar Zalmi as a supplementary player and will be available to play until February 26, said the Zalmi media team Monday.
A close source of Shakib also confirmed this development, adding that the all-rounder is "excited to join the PSL and play alongside some of the best players in the world."
Peshawar Zalmi lifted their first and only PSL title in 2017. And since then, they have consistently been a top-performing team, finishing as runners-up in 2019 and 2021.
