With the Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal withdrawing from the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Namibian captain Gerhard Erasmus showed his interest to play in the PSL for “free” if needed.

With the second-highest runs scored since the first edition, 1,820 runs in 69 innings with an average of 27.57, Kamaran refused to play for Peshawar Zalmi after he was selected in the ‘Silver’ category during the PSL draft, considering the action as “humiliation.”

In reply to a tweet shared by ESPNcricinfo, the Namibian skipper replied: “Pick me. I’ll be there for free.”

On his YouTube channel “Catch and bat with Kamran Akmal“, the cricket said: “Perhaps the team has no use for me anymore.”

He further said that instead of picking me in the Silver category, the young cricketers should be given a chance.

Akmal said that when his category changed from Platinum to Gold in the previous season, he was taken aback.

He added that he believes that he deserves the Gold category based on his performance, instead, he got picked for the Silver category.

“I do not think I should play in the seventh edition of the PSL,” said Akmal.
