Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi confirmed on Thursday that the team's foreign players are ready to play the Pakistan Super League final in Lahore scheduled for March 5. Afridi also said the foreign players have received their Pakistani visas.

"All five of our foreign players have received Pakistani visas and they will play the final in Lahore when we qualify," said the franchise owner.

Earlier, three English players of the Quetta Gladiators — Kevin Pietersen, Tymal Mills and Luke Wright —announced that they would not be participating in the PSL final.

The Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) had earlier advised players against travelling to Lahore. The PSL management had instructed all teams to work on their own contingency plan in a scenario wherein their foreign players decide not to travel to Pakistan.

PSL is also in the midst of replacing foreign commentators — including Danny Morrison, Alan Wilkins and Mel Jones — who have backed out from covering the final, while Ian Bishop’s contract is coming to an end.
