IRB INfrastructure – Kolkata Knight Riders have rubbished reports of two-time IPL Owners locking horns with Pakistan Super League (PSL) winners Peshawar Zalmi at a neutral venue in the near future.
Pakistan media on Thursday quoted Zalmi owner Javed Afridi as saying that KKR owner Shahrukh called to congratulate him on his team’s success and offered to play a three-match series between both the teams a neutral venue, either Dubai or London.
Peshawar Zalmi won the PSL title after beating Quetta Gladiators in the final held at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Sunday.
However, KKR team management denied any such development and trashed media reports coming in from across the border.
“There is absolutely no truth in it. We categorically deny this,” KKR CEO Venky Mysore told India Today in an exclusive chat.
“I just had a word with Shah Rukh and he told me that he has been so busy shooting these days that he didn’t even know that any such league was happening in Pakistan or Dubai let alone calling any franchise owner and congratulating him on winning the tournament,” Mysore added.
