Phil Mustard interested to play Pakistan Super League!
Though the security system in Pakistan is too weak to stay there and play,England’s ex-wicket keeper Phil Mustard expresses his wish to play in Pakistan Super League.While giant teams like Australia,England’s picked up the security issue for not playing in PSL,Mustard makes himself determined so far for playing and keeps an eye on $100,000 contract as well.Meanwhile,Mustard believes the top players being offered $100,000 (£63,000) rewards outweigh the risks for the two-week tournament as well.
He said on that occasion,”I’d like to think that over the two weeks I could make a name for myself.But it’s an auction-based thing and I’m not going to go over to Pakistan and risk a few things for less than $100,000.”
However,Mustard also says he has been reassured by conversations with fellow players and officials at the Bangladesh Premier League, where he is currently competing for the Barisal Burners.
“It only came to my attention about a week ago.My agent got in touch and asked if I would be interested in going. My first instinct was ‘no’ but in Bangladesh I have spoken to a couple of the Pakistan players and a couple of guys from the ICC.”
“They say it is all going to go ahead and the security is going to be amazing. There are going to be bullet-proof buses and everything else.”,he admitted.
