The Yellow Army of Javed Afridi made some significant changes to their squad for the upcoming season. In Platinum Category they opted for the former captain Shoaib Malik who was released by the Multan Sultans management. Kieron Pollard, Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz and Umar Amin were retained in the squad because of their impressive performances last year.
They have also added some young and explosive all-rounders like Mohammad Mohsin. Mohsin is creating magic with his leg-spin in the domestic circuit of Pakistan and he is a very handy lower-order batsman. Haider Ali Khan is the opening batsman of the Pakistan U-19 squad and he has been picked by Peshawar Zalmi for the upcoming edition.
Amir Ali and Amir Khan are the two unknown faces in the squad. However, the inclusion of the English opening batsman Tom Banton in the Zalmi squad is going to excite the fans of Peshawar.
