Karachi Kings 2017 Squad

PSL 2017 Karachi Kings players list is placed here. After a rocking inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League, the second season continues in 2017 and the Karachi Kings are set up quite nicely for the tournament.  Karachi Kings have traded Sohail Tanvir to Lahore Qalandars and brought in Chris Gayle in what would have been the biggest trade before the PSL Draft.

Key Players on Karachi Kings team: Ravi Bopara, Kumar Sangakkara, Mohammad Amir, Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle

The Kings have made some wily recruitment in the PSL player draft. The side will be skippered by Kumar Sangakkara after being led by Pakistan international batsman Shoaib Malik last season. His performances in the Caribbean Premier League were quite encouraging and he has gone from strength to strength since then.

Malik was the skipper in the first season but he opted out for the second part of the tournament and Ravi Bopara was brought in as the skipper. Now Sangakkara takes over the role from Malik and Bopara.

His international teammates Sohail Tanvir, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir also find a place in the side. Tanvir is a useful bowler to have who can swing the ball both ways while Amir can prove to be a very important recruit. The left-handed fast bowler has made a steady comeback after serving a 5-year ban from the sport and is in the frame to restore his reputation as one of the finest bowlers in Pakistan.

Karachi have also made some important additions when it comes to foreign players with Chris Gayle their most high-profile player. He has been phenomenal in the Indian Premier League and the other leagues in the world and Lahore’s loss will be Karachi’s gain and will be a key player with both bat and ball for the Kings.

They have also acquired Ravi Bopara and Mahela Jaywardene for the side with Imad Wasim making a key presence in the side from Pakistan. Bopara was the man of the tournament last season while Jayawardene now features only in T20 leagues around the world. On the other hand, Wasim is one of the biggest upcoming stars in this format of the game.

The side were bought by Salman Iqbal owned Any Media Group for a whopping price of $2.4 million US dollars. They have appointed former South African international coach Mickey Arthur as their manager while former Pakistan leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed will serve as his assistant and bowling coach. Karachi Kings players 2017 list is placed below.
