KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain – Shahid Afridi, who is currently representing Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 7, praised Jason Roy’s magnificent 116-runs knock against Lahore Qalandars.

Taking to Twitter, Afridi heaped praises on the astonishing knock which steered the Gladiators to the victory in the 15th match of the PSL 7.

“I have seen some amazing innings in the PSL, but nothing compares to what [Jason Roy] delivered for us,” the star all-rounder wrote.
