SHARJAH: Pakistan Cricket Board’s  Executive Committee chief  and Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi on Monday invited Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to watch the final of the tournament to be held on February 23.

“I invite Patron PCB Nawaz Sharif & World Cup winning captain Imran Khan to PSL Final on 23rd Feb. Gentlemen, put politics aside and watch cricket,” he said in a message posted on Twitter.

Besides inviting both the personalities, Sethi requested cricket fans to start a trend on Twitter to build pressure on both Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan to “join us in Dubai”.
