According to a press release issued by the franchise on Tuesday, Mahira will be Peshawar Zalmi’s brand ambassador for the third time after PSL III and PSL IV.
Peshawar Zalmi chairman Javed Afridi said on Twitter, "I am very happy to announce that Mahira Khan will be the brand ambassador of Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 6.”
Peshawar Zalmi’s official page also tweeted about the news and said, “Happy to announce & continue our association with @TheMahiraKhan who has been the face of Zalmi and a loyal supporter since the start.
