PSL Islamabad United Team 2021 Players List
PSL Islamabad United players 2021 is placed here. Islamabad United are the most successful team in PSL history and are the only team to have won the competition twice. They also hold the record for the highest team total, which was 238/3 against Lahore. However, those glory days are well and truly behind them, and since their last tournament win in 2018, they have been on the decline ever since. This has culminated in them finishing bottom of the standings last season, which is their worst ever finish.
Following last season’s poor campaign, they have made some drastic changes for the forthcoming tournament. The first thing they did was appoint the experienced South African Johan Botha as their new head coach. Botha previously had a stint working as a fielding coach for Islamabad back in PSL 2.
After this, they decided to appoint Rumman Raees as their new bowling consultant. Raees knows the club very well, having spent the five previous years on the playing staff.
They will start their campaign on the second day of the PSL when they take on Multan Sultans on Sunday, 21st of February, in Karachi. Islamabad United PSL 2021 squad is placed below.

Key Players on Islamabad United Team 2021
They then struck first by trading Colin Ingram for England’s explosive T20 opening batsmen Alex Hales before the draft took place. They then picked Hasan Ali in the draft, who will be an excellent addition to a bowling attack that was found wanting last season. As well as Hales, they also added another three English players in Gregory, Salt, Topley. They retained seven players from last season’s failing squad.
Although they face last season’s regular-season winners, they did have some success against them last year. They first met on matchday five, with Islamabad comfortably reaching 165 runs with 20 balls to spare and only losing two wickets. However, the Sultans got revenge on matchday 22 in a match that was interrupted by rain. Islamabad only reached 91/7 in their nine overs, and the Sultans strolled to victory with 14 balls left. These two teams have been installed as the outsiders of the tournament, and they will be out to prove their doubters wrong.
Although Islamabad is the joint outsiders to win this season’s tournament, we’re sure that they will improve on last season’s showing and will be more competitive this year. They definitely can’t be accused of not trying as they have pulled all of the stops out to succeed in this season’s tournament.
The team is now beautifully balanced on paper and they can go in with a variety of combinations. Also, with the kind of coaches they have, it will be very disappointing if they do not go very far in the tournament. Islamabad United PSL team squad is placed above.
