Karachi: Saudi Arabia hires Pakistan to promote cricket on its soil.
According to sources, in light of the increasing popularity of cricket, the Saudi Arabia Crown Prince has invited the owner of Quetta Gladiators, a well-known PSL franchise, Nadeem Umar, to promote cricket in his nation.
Sources said, Nadeem Umar, who was invited by the Saudi government on a special invitation, will present suggestions to the relevant authorities for the development and promotion of the sport, and memorandum of understanding will also be signed between Quetta Gladiator and the Saudi government in this context.
According to sources, Nadeem Umar will build the Saudi national cricket squad with his team, and the franchise will also form the Saudi local cricket system.
