Afridi to join Gladiators today

February 28, 2012

Pakistani cricketers Shahid Afridi and Saeed Ajmal are set to join Dhaka Gladiators today for their semi-final match in the Bangladesh Premier League, said the franchise on Monday.
The duo are expected to land at 8:00am at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, hours before Dhaka Gladiators are scheduled to take on Khulna Royal Bengals in the second semi-final at 6:30pm.
Afridi was picked by Dhaka for $700,000 in BPL auction, the highest amount paid to any player, though
the all-rounder always insisted that he will prefer the national team duty to BPL.
Pakistan’s series against England ended on Monday and keeping that in mind Dhaka just took the chance said the Dhaka official.
Afridi’s presence has become more crucial as they are set to lose West Indian hard-hitter Kieron Pollard today for his commitment with the national team.
