Abdul Razzaq joins Lahore Qalandars for Abu Dhabi T20 Trophy

Another flamboyant Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has joined Lahore Qalandars’ squad for next month’s Abu Dhabi T20 tournament, which will be played next month.
The signing was announced from Qalandars’ official Twitter handle with a video message from the all-rounder saying that he’s excited to be a part of the Qalandars’ squad for the tournament which will feature T20 teams from various countries.
“Abdul Razzaq is excited to represent Lahore Qalandars in Abu Dhabi T20 and is hoping to apply his exceptional skills and expertise to help his team emerge victorious,” said the tweet on Qalandars official account.
Razzaq, in the message, stated that he’s thankful to the management of Lahore Qalandars.
“I am going to play for Lahore Qalandars in the Abu Dhabi tournament. I am very excited and thankful to Aaqib Javed, the coach of Lahore Qalandars,” the 38-year-old said.
