Shoaib Akhtar wants to buy and rename Lahore Qalandars’ franchise

Shoaib Akhtar, the former Pakistani fast bowler assumes that Lahore Qalandars, a renowned and one of the expensive teams of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), will strike under his ownership smoothly. While addressing one of Pakistan’s media portals, Akhtar revealed that he earlier summoned Qalandars’ stakeholders to sell him the franchise.

Akhtar added that the brand is wasted by the contemporary tenants with no strait-laced implementation and utilization of ‘cricket’. He asserts that he will rename the unit as Lahore Express replacing the management to make it perform with scratch.
