If a player does well. at PSL, then the unprofessional approach of the Pakistan Cricket Board jeopardizes his chances of entering the national team, “he said.

It was too difficult to play with him,” said Kaneria who uses the Koo social platform where it is located. publication on various issues including cricket.
