Wasim Akram

Islamabad United’s mentor, Wasim Akram has left the franchise and has joined the new team of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Multan as their director.

Islamabad United announced the news that their mentor has parted his ways from the franchise through a tweet from their official account.

Under the mentorship of legendary Wasim Akram, Islamabad United stood victorious in the first edition of the PSL.

Islamabad United hit with a huge controversy in the second edition where two of their players, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, were accused and suspended from all forms of cricket for being involved in spot fixing.

Islamabad United finished fourth in the PSL 2016.

Under the supervision of the Sultan of Swing, Islamabad United gave Pakistan two bright future prospects in shape of the left-arm pacer Rumman Raees and the young leggie, Shadab Khan.
