Mega Stars League: Shahid Afridi launches T10 League for older players

Mega Super League will be played in September in Rawalpindi. 6 teams will feature in the tournament.

Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi announced the Mega Stars League (MSL). The T10 League will be played in September this year. Shahid Afridi Foundation will organize the tournament to support former cricketers. Afridi last played in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) earlier this year. However, the 42-year-old cricketer clarified that it will be his last PSL appearance. Shahid Afridi revealed other details of the MSL at the event.

In addition to Afridi, former Pakistani players Waqar Younis, Abdul Razzaq, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and Mushtaq Ahmad also graced the event with their presence. These players are most likely to be a part of the Mega Stars League. Other international players will also feature in the tournament. Afridi added that the PSL is more suitable for youngsters. Moreover, Afridi jokingly called himself ‘not young enough anymore’. Shahid Afridi has been one of the finest T20 players from Pakistan. Apart from contributing gigantically with the bat as well as the ball, he has also led the Pakistan team to several wins across formats.

“Mega Star League is an entertaining league, which is scheduled to be played in September in Rawalpindi this year. The core idea behind introducing this league is to financially support the ex-cricketers, athletes, and sports journalists. The MSL will feature six teams, and foreign players will also take part in the upcoming league. PSL is for youngsters and I am not young enough anymore. I, Mushtaq Ahmed, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and Waqar Younis will play in MSL.”

Apart from empowering former cricketers economically, the tournament will also be beneficial to sports journalists. The tournament will be played at Rawalpindi in September and will feature several known international faces as well.

Furthermore, he also gave his views on Pakistan Cricket Board being separated from Politics. “I think the PCB should not be taken to the assembly or to Islamabad. The PCB is an independent body and decisions such as electing the new chairman should be exercised merely through elections.”
