After playing back to back matches the team owner Javed Afridi invited his team and management for a cruise dinner at Dubai Marina. This cruise dinner was quite a relaxing moment for all the players. They were snapped chatting and having a good time on cruise with fellow team mates. Such events lift the morale of the players.
As they say, Peshawar Zalmi is like a family. We believe such dinners and casual bonding sessions are the reason they come out as a strong unit on field.
Here are some snaps from the Team Cruise Dinner:
