PSL team owner seeks Thakur's nod for matches against IPL

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Javed Afridi, the owner of Super League (PSL) franchise Peshawar Zalmi, today president Anurag Thakur and sought his approval for teams to play against the Indian League sides.

Afridi, a Pakistani businessman, dropped in at Thakur's residence for the meeting. He also presented the jersey of Peshawar Zalmi to Thakur.



After Uri attack in September, Thakur had said that resumption of cricketing ties between the two countries was out of question.

Afridi, however, sounded positive after his meeting with the chief.

"Such events will help promote peace between the two countries," Afridi was quoted as saying by the Pakistani media. He further suggested that the matches between and teams can be held at neutral venues.

Afridi also revealed that is he in touch with the owners of some teams.

"We are in touch with them to play some matches between and teams, but for that we will need the approval of BCCI," Afridi added.

The inaugural was held in UAE in February.

Both India and have not played a full bilateral series after the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.

However, they faced each other in a short series in India from December 25, 2012 to January 6 comprising two T20 Internationals and three One-day Internationals.
