PSL 2020: Proteas David Wiese was spotted in a virtual press conference with Lahore Qalandars where he revealed how excited he is to be a part of Qalandars in the final stages matches. Wiese, who was not much dominant with the bat this season, also has spoken his heart revealing that he is unsure if the management will pick him over local talent or not.
Highlighting the fact that Qalandars have the real talent this season who was dominant in every department, he understands that his deliverance was not up to the expectation which might refrain him from playing in the remaining games.
“I don’t think anybody thought that the playoffs were going to happen, with the pandemic and everything taking place. I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully, we can put in some good performances and make it all the way,” he said.
“It’s always nice to contribute towards the winning of the team but you know, on any given day, anything can happen. I’m just happy to be out there and do well for the team. There are so many other great players that Lahore has this year, so maybe I might not even be needed for those last couple of games,” he said.
“Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen Afridi, and Haris Rauf look like they’re all in form. So, hopefully, they can do all the business and we can just go there and enjoy ourselves.”
He also allotted certain facts about the die-hard fans and the commendable audience on the grounds who will now be watching the matches from TV.
“As a cricketer, you always thrive on energy off the crowd. You always get excited because you know there’s going to be tens of thousands of people cheering and there’s going to be an electric atmosphere in there but at this stage that’s not going to happen,” he said.
“So, the next best thing for us is to put up a big performance as a way to say ‘thank you’ to supporters. It must be tough for them. Mostly not being able to come to the ground and to cheer.”
“Qalandars has made that a mission of theirs to go out and find the local superstars while everybody else focuses on getting the international stars in the team. They give them opportunities to mix and interact with global superstars,” David Wiese said.
