PSL 2020 Karachi Kings Squad
The official news is not out yet, as we all know, but the team performed reasonably well under the captaincy of young Imad Wasim. So, who knows the management might want to stick with him and make other picks with his consultation during the PSL 2020 draft that is scheduled in November.
Even though we don’t have any confirmed news on the PSL 2020 Karachi Kings Squad, some conclusions can still be drawn from their squad for the last season. Let’s have a look at it.
PSL 2019 Karachi Kings Squad
As we have already mentioned, Imad Wasim lead the side splendidly in the previous season and will be expected to continue with that momentum as the team makes its first appearances in the PSL 5. He was the Diamond pick and the team is expected to retain its captain for sure.
Among the platinum picks were Babar Azam, Mohammad Amir, and Colin Ingram. Babar and Amir have been with them since the beginning of the Pakistan Super League and will expectedly continue with them in the upcoming PSL 2020 as well. In fact, there’s been a lot of buzz around Babar’s recent performances and he’d be the star pick for Karachi Kings in the upcoming PSL season. He’s making records one after the other and, who knows, we might have a few coming up in the next PSL edition too.
Ravi Bopara has also been a key pick for the team over the years and he was there in the PSL 4 too. In fact, the team’s fans would like him to have a go in the next season as well. But the final decision would be from the management, of course. Liam Livingstone and Sikandar Raza were their other major picks among the foreign players.
The names worth mentioning in the bowling department included Usama Mir and Sohail Khan as well. And, as the franchise has been carrying them right from the start, we can expect them to appear in the PSL season 5 as well.
Well, all these are just the speculations and we have to wait until November to see how things unfold in the run for the event. The fingers are crossed and for now we can only guess as to what’s going to happen. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted as we get more updates.
