David Wiese, an all-around player, has thanked Lahore Qalandars for helping to revive his international career.
The Namibian, who was born in South Africa and has played for Qalandars since 2019, considers it an honor to be a member of the Pakistan Super League’s reigning champions as season eight approaches.
In a news release, Lahore Qalandars reported David Wiese as stating, “The Pakistan Super League has been a fantastic kick-start for my career and it’s all because of Lahore Qalandars for picking me in the replacement draught.”
The 37-year-old, who has played in more than 300 T20 cricket matches, has played 35 times for Lahore Qalandars, scoring 478 runs and taking 27 wickets, including the memorable performance of holding Islamabad United to eight runs in six deliveries during PSL 7. Additionally, he has made multiple impactful cameos for his team toward the finish of the innings.
“I wasn’t playing well in cricket before I came to PSL. Although I wasn’t selected by another team, I am really appreciative to the Lahore Qalandars for having faith in and confidence in me, Wiese continued. The fact that I fared well in my first game and have subsequently been playing excellent cricket has given me a lot of confidence.
“Since the moment, I joined the Qalandars, I am nothing but an improved in myself. I am now able to perform in different and difficult stages. I am able to play a lot more tournaments now and I am doing better for other teams as well.”
