Peshawar Zalmi is not merely a franchise based in the provincial capital, but also an epitome of valour, zest and zeal among people of this nation. In the north-western part of the country, the word ‘Zalmi’ stands for youth – the part of the country where the state of exuberance among people is irrepressible, the concept of endothermy is long extinct and the blood running down is boiling hot.
Peshawar has had its fair share of distress in the past, but that has changed of late. Peshawar Zalmi has come to the fore and has spearheaded the cricketing fan base in the city; the same city which used to be in the news for all the wrong reasons, not that long ago. The franchise, with a logo indicating a fusion of their traditional turban and cricket stumps, has evolved gradually, yet drastically in a way that is likely to have a strong and far reaching effect.
