LAHORE: Pakistani cricketers will be wearing the logo of Edhi foundation on their playing shirts during the tour of England starting this month, confirmed PCB Chairman Shahayar Khan on Friday.
“PCB values the humanitarian service of the charitable foundation for the country,” Khan said.
He said that the Edhi foundation has tirelessly served the humanity.
To a question, he said that Edhi sahab deserved to get Nobel Award for his lifelong services to the humanity.
He said that International Cricket Council (ICC) has granted Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) permission to don the Edhi foundation’s logo on Pakistan cricket team’s official kit.
Misbahul Haq, Azhar Ali, and Sarfraz Ahmed attended a ceremony to endorse the charitable organisation before departing for England tomorrow morning at 9:00am.
This would be the first time in Pakistan cricket team’s history that players would wear logos of a charitable organisation on their official kit.
The tour of England will begin with four Test matches starting next month, with the first match being played at Lord’s cricket ground in London on July 14. – SAMAA
