Shahid Afridi at the age of 45 still might be a name to reckon with in franchise cricket. Nevertheless, he is well beyond his prime. Same is the case with a lot other guys in the squad that includes Junaid Khan, Mohd. Irfan, Ravi Boopra and Sohail Tanvir. Their skipper i.e. Shan Masood too is more of a Test player and therefore, will have to play really well to prove his credentials in the format.

This year’s PSL will be organized in Pakistan and therefore, public support can be instrumental in influencing the confidence level of each franchise. So, Sultans then need their stars particularly, Shahid Afridi who is equally famous in all parts of the country to deliver. A few big performances from the all-rounder can play a massive role in gathering public support .

Moeen Ali and  Rilee Rossouw on the other hand are among the only cricketers who are at the top of their game at the international level and thus, Sultans will require big performances from them in the field to topple strong oppositions like Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi etc.
