The Galle Warriors have named star all-rounder Shahid Afridi as the commander of the establishment in front of the Lanka Chief Alliance (LPL).
Afridi was given the duty as wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed, who was at first set to lead the side, was managed out of the occasion in the wake of being named in Pakistan’s crew for New Zealand visit.
Sri Lanka’s top-request batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been named as the bad habit skipper of the side.
Meanwhile, wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal, who was set to play for Dambulla Hawks, has also withdrawn from the event due to shoulder injury — which also kept him out of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) playoffs and the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
“On advice from doctors, I have decided against playing the tournament,” said Akmal while talking to Express News. “My flight was confirmed for Saturday morning but after assessing my MRI report, late last night, my doctor asked me to rest for a few more days before getting back on the field.”
The 23-match tournament is starting on November 26 and will conclude on December 17.
