Australian Summers To Play In Pakistan Domestic Cricket

ISLAMABAD: Australian fast bowler Aaron Summers will become the first foreign player to play in revamped Pakistan domestic cricket when he represents Southern Punjab in the Pakistan Cup One-Day Tournament in Karachi next month.

The 24-year-old Summers had played for Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League in 2019 and also represented Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League.

While I look forward to developing as a quality fast bowler,” he said, “I am equally keen to help my side (perform) strongly in the Pakistan Cup.

PCBs High Performance Director Nadeem Khan said the cricket board wanted to attract foreign players to Pakistan domestic cricket.

We are aspiring to make our domestic structure robust, tough and challenging that can not only benefit our cricketers but also attract foreign cricketers just like our cricketers who are regularly featuring in Australia and Englands domestic circuit, he said.

I am hopeful Aarons participation will also attract other foreign cricketers. It will also help our local players interact and integrate with players from other environments and enhance their understanding of different cultures.
