Shaheen Shah Afridi is set to star in ILT20 for Desert Vipers which is owned by Manchester United FC owners, The Glazers.
The buzz is in full swing as the Desert Vipers have pulled off a major move by bringing on board the renowned fast bowler, Shaheen Shah Afridi, for the upcoming International League T20 (ILT20). This thrilling tournament is all set to take place in the UAE at the beginning of the next year.
In a smart play, the deal was sealed precisely as Shaheen Shah Afridi received the go-ahead to participate in the ILT20 for a brief one-week period, perfectly navigating his jam-packed schedule with the national squad. The star pacer will don the Desert Vipers’ jersey for a short but impactful stint, just before the commencement of the much-anticipated Pakistan Super League.
What adds an extra layer of intrigue is that the Desert Vipers are under the ownership of the same group that holds the reins of the iconic Manchester United Football Club – none other than The Glazers. Interestingly, in contrast to the other squads in ILT20, they stand out by not being affiliated with IPL teams.
