West Indian cricketer Kieron Pollard said on Sunday he is "very excited" to become a part of the Peshawar Zalmi team ahead of the fourth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) due to begin on February 14.

The newly inducted Yellow Storm player had a special video message for fans, shared by Peshawar Zalmi on Twitter.

'"I am very excited to join [the] Peshawar Zalmi squad this season. It'll be great to share the dressing room with captain Sammy, Misbah, Wahab, Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, just to name a few," he said.

He also appreciated the "great upcoming talent(s)" of the team, Umaid Asif and Sameen Gul.
