Islamabad United have been the most successful team of PSL, so far. Hence, here is a look at cricketers who can help the United in defending their PSL title.
Luke Ronchi was simply outstanding during the previous year’s event particularly, while opening the innings. Hence, in order for the United to defend the trophy, they will be hoping that the wicket-keeper batsman is able to repeat his performance this year as well.
Shadab Khan to his credit has been wonderful throughout the time that he has represented the franchise. Another good tournament for him then, is likely to see the United qualify for the play-offs without losing much sweat.
With Misbah gone Mohd. Sami will be leading the franchise for this season. He has been brilliant as a pacer for the franchise over the years and the United for sure will have high expectations from the 37-year-old for this season.
Asif Ali might have been a bit of a liability on Pakistan’s international side but he has done well for the United during the last two seasons. So, another good tournament for Asif is likely to provide a lot of assistance to the franchise in their quest to defend the title.
Sahibzada Farhan is most definitely one of the potential candidates for the up coming world cup. So, the United will be hoping for him to form a formidable partnership up the order with Ronchi and provide their side with good starts in as many games as possible during the tournament.
