Six of our seven players are ready to come and play in Pakistan [from the beginning]. Eoin Morgan, who has commitments to other leagues, [is the sole exception]. He will be coming late and will be leaving early. This is good news for all of us that players have agreed to come here and we hope everything stays well.
Apart from Karachi Kings, Salman Iqbal says other teams’ players have also shown their willingness to visit Pakistan for the matches. He said;
Overall, 98% of the players have agreed to come to Lahore and Karachi. Some are left and hopefully they will also agree soon.
