Mohammad Hafeez will lead Lahore in PSL 4.

Newly appointed Lahore Qalandars skipper Mohammad Hafeez is hoping to bring about a change in the team’s fortunes when the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) gets underway this month.

The Qalandars have been the biggest under-performers in PSL history and have finished bottom of the league in each of the three editions held so far.

This season, the Lahore franchise has managed to land some big names in the player auction with South African ace AB de Villiers being the most prominent among them. Another exciting name in the Qalandars mix is teenage Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane.

Praising the team combination, Hafeez hoped that the side will give the Lahore fans something to cheer about this time.

“Our team combination is very good. The think tank of Lahore Qalandars have done a good job in picking players,” the Pakistan veteran told Geo News.

“I’m sure all the players will give their best and deliver according to expectations and provide Qalandars fans something to cheer about, something they have been missing.

“As a player, I will try to give my maximum and make every effort to make the team victorious.”

The fourth edition of the PSL sees as many as eight matches scheduled to be held on Pakistan soil and Hafeez is relishing the prospect of playing in front of home fans.

“Playing PSL in Pakistan is something we all have been waiting for. Really looking forward to our two games in Lahore and then the next stage in Karachi,” Hafeez stated.

The PSL will get underway in the UAE on February 14 with Lahore Qalandars taking on defending champions Islamabad United in the tournament opener at Dubai.
