Karachi Kings Squad for PSL 4 2019
Karachi Kings 2019 Squad
Karachi Kings 2019 squad is placed here. After having had a couple of really underwhelming seasons, the Karachi Kings came back to give themselves some chance in third season of the Pakistan Super League but can they now go the distance in this season four?
Going into the PSL Draft, teams were allowed 10 players to be retained and the Karachi Kings decided to use eight of those options. Leading the list of the retained players is pace bowler Mohammad Amir and Babar Azam, one of the best batsmen in the world in current times and both were included in the Platinum category. Colin Munro also joins them in the same category.
Other than that, Diamond category players include Pakistan’s Usman Khan and South Africa’s Colin Ingram, as would captain Imad Wasim. While Imad’s bowling skills have pushed him to being one of the top spinners in the world, his batting and captaincy will be tested too.
The players in the Gold category will be Mohammad Rizwan and Ravi Bopara, retained from last year after a decent showing too.
In what came as very interesting news, legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi was let go by the side and he won’t be featuring for them any more. Who they get in place of him as a Platinum player will be much to look out for given they now have an extra place freed up for it..
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 2019 list is placed below.
