The right-hand batsman and left-arm orthodox bowler Liam Dawson is very happy to meet with the great Pakistan cricketers. He said, “It’s obviously amazing to learn from people like Younis Khan and Saqlain Mushtaq. It’s good to be around some big names of Pakistan cricket and hopefully, I’ll pick their brains over the next month of cricket.”

Playing for the defending champions Peshawar Zalmi, Dawson has not got his chance yet. However, he is expecting to get a chance soon in the PSL.

27-years old Liam Dawson made his international debut in 2016 and till the date, he has played 3 Tests, only ODI and 6 T20Is. He was included in England’s T20I squad for the recently concluded T20I tri-nation series between Australia, New Zealand and England. During that T20I tri-series, he was selected in the playing XI for two matches where his performances failed to impress.

Coming to the PSL, the defending champion Peshawar Zalmi have not a good start. In their first three matches, they have won just once and lost twice.

However, Peshawar Zalmi’s top-order batsman Dwayne Smith is not looking tensed with his team’s initial performances. The Caribbean all-rounder believes that they can qualify for the play-offs. After the third game, where the Player of the Match award winner Dwayne Smith scored 71* but his team failed to secure a victory, Smith said, “I’m very proud of the way the team played, especially in the field. Barring a few chances we really bowled well. I’m sure we’ll bounce back, not let this game into our heads and make it to the play-offs. Don’t give up on us [just yet] because we haven’t given up as well. We’re going to come back and fight till the end.”
