“The New Zealand tour could be make or break for many cricketers, which has also been the case in the past as well.

While praising the Karachi Kings management Amir said, “Although it took us five years to win the trophy but the good thing about Karachi Kings is that they trusted their local players and backed Imad Wasim as captain. If you look at some of the other franchises they tend to panic and change captains and players if results don’t go their way.”
