Karachi Kings – with a new spirit in PSL Season 3

Here is everything you need to know about the Karachi Kings Squad for PSL 3. After a season of horribly disappointing performances, naturally, the Karachi Kings are hoping to perform better during the third season of the Pakistan Super League.

 

They have garnered a lot of approvals for their smart choices of retaining certain players from the last season. They decided to retain Pakistan’s Usman Khan and Usama Mir, while they made the interesting choice of letting go Chris Gayle and Ravi Bopara, and his medium-pacers proved to be of little use while playing on sluggish and slow surfaces.

 

Key Players in Karachi Kings PSL 3 Squad 2018

The Karachi Kings Squad 2018 will performed under the leadership of Imad Wasim, while Mohammad Amir and Babar Azam have also been made a part of the line-up. It appears that the PSL 2018 Karachi King Team is heavily dependent on its Pakistani Players in order to give a terrific performance during the PSL 3. Needless to say, Imad Wasim is the star player who is anticipated to give a powerful performance.

In what appears to be one of the most shocking news of the cricket world, Shahid Afridi has decided to ditch Peshawar Zalmi and join the Karachi Kings Squad for PSL 3, while Mohammad Rizwan was given up for Sohail Khan from Lahore Qalandars.

The Karachi Kings had great opportunity to target foreign players during the PSL Draft, and they selected Colin Ingram as their Platinum Player, while Mitchell Johnson became the Diamond Pick, and Luke Wright was selected during the Gold round.

 

New Players in KK Squad 2018

Several other players will be seen involved in the Karachi Kings Squad 2018, including Mohammad Irfan Jr. Hassan Mohsin, David Wiese, and Tabish Khan. Colin Munro, Saifullah Bangash, and Eoin Morgan were chose as Supplementary players. The Karachi Kings have made the decision of holding the spot for the fourth Supplementary player until their national talent hunt is over.

 

Owners and Coaching Staff

The side was purchased by Salman Iqbal, the owner of ARY Media Group, for the staggering price tag of $2.4 million US dollars. The former South African international coach Mickey Arthur has been selected as their manager, while Mushtaq Ahmed, the former Pakistani leg-spinner, has been appointed as his assistant and the bowling coach.

 

Karachi Kings 2018 Squad – Bottom Line

Last year Karachi kings saw some major disappointments as they failed to impress the crowd. However, this year, the team has opted for a major revamp and is expected to hit back with major force.

Big Modifications

There are many different modifications in the batting line up, the most prominent one is of Shahid Afridi. Boom Boom Afridi decided to leave the Peshawar team and join the exact opposite, Karachi kings. We are surprised by this sudden move of Lala but can’t wait to see the impact of this new configuration on Karachi King’s performance. After all, Afridi has years’ worth of international cricket experience and can judge and speculate the moves of many international players. Again, this gives the team a significant advantage.

Now it really depends how much the Karachi Kings Squad 2018 manages to benefit from Afridi. From the looks of it, there are some incredible matches in store for us for sure!
