Babar Azam, the captain and outstanding batsman for Pakistan, has set the goal of becoming the first player to get a century in the Pakistan Super League.

Azam will captain Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 8, which kicks off on February 13 in Multan. He left Karachi Kings prior to last year’s draught.

“Every PSL edition is super exciting for me because of its competitive nature. There is a different challenge each year as the players with whom you share the Pakistan dressing room all year become your opponents,” Azam said on the latest edition of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Podcast.

“A new franchise, and a new season, this PSL edition holds added significance for me and I am looking forward to making a good start in this journey.

“Sharing the dressing room with different players throughout – one season with Islamabad United and six seasons with Karachi Kings – has helped me a lot. You learn a great deal when you interact with other players, getting to know about their mindset, training regime and the way they handle different situations.

“It is a dream for me to score a century in the PSL as I already have two T20I centuries and a few more in different leagues. I am positive about achieving the three-figure mark in this PSL, and hoping the right time comes soon for a big score.”

It should be mentioned that Babar Azam has 2,413 runs, which is the greatest in the history of the competition.

The PSL 8 opening ceremony will take place in Multan on February 13 before the tournament’s first match between the defending champions Lahore Qalandars and the 2021 champion Multan Sultans; the closing ceremony and final will take place on March 19 in Lahore, which will also host play-offs.

Peshawar Zalmi squad

Babar Azam (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Haris, Aamir Jamal, Salman Irshad, Tom-Kohler Cadmore, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rovman Powell, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Danish Aziz, Arshad Iqbal, Saim Ayub, Usman Qadir, Suifyan Muqeem, Haseeb Ullah, Jimmy Neesham, Khurram Shahzad, Haris Sohail, Richard Gleeson (partial replacement for Rovman Powell)
