“There are lots of competitions around the world which I haven’t played it yet. I’ve played IPL, and T20 cricket in England, but I haven’t played CPL (Caribbean Premier League) or even PSL yet, which would be nice to do,” Khawaja said in his interview with cricket.com.au.
“Pakistan is obviously where my family is from, it’s where I was born and I’d love to get back there one day. I haven’t been there for 11, 12 years so I’d like to tick that off the bucket list, too,” he added.
“I’ve got a lot of support in Pakistan and it’d be nice to go back and see and meet some of those people,” he maintained.
It is to be noted that the PSL was scrapped up in its midways after the COVID-19 blow shocked the world. The remaining matches, semifinals and final, are to take place on 14th, 15th, and 17th November respectively.
