The owner of Karachi Kings Mr. Salman Iqbal is happy that the whole fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is scheduled to take place in Pakistan.
“Finally the dream comes true as the PSL is all set to be staged in Pakistan completely. I am sure this season is going to be bigger and better,” said Mr. Salman while talking to the reporters ahead of the PSL 5 drafts.
Kings’ owner is confident to pick best possible players to make a potent squad for the upcoming edition of the PSL.
“We have planned strongly for picking players in the draft. I hope a strong KK squad will be developed for this season,” he said.
Mr. Salman revealed that Imad Wasim has been retained as their captain and Babar Azam will serve as his deputy in the mega event.
“Both Imad and Babar are young energetic players. I hope they both will keep balance in the team and achieve some worthy results,” he concluded.
