Earlier, Pakistan’s legendary pacer Wasim Akram joined Royals as a mentor for the second season.

“I have so many friends from Mirpur here that’s why I joined the Royals,” said Akram in a video message from England. “I am eagerly waiting to join the team and for motivating our players while sitting in the dug outs, will be sharing my experience with them.”

“There are some big players like Shahid Afridi and Sarfaraz Ahmed are participating in KPL2, we also have senior player Shoaib Malik in our team. Hoping our boys will put up an excellent show, so fans keep supporting Mirpur Royals,” he added.
