The newly crowned captain of Karachi Kings, Imad Wasim believes that it would not be much challenging to lead the star-studded side as players are aware of their roles in the team.
“I don’t think it will be that difficult [to captain Karachi Kings],” Imad Wasim told ARY Sports. “Players know their role in the team as we all have played together a lot, I just need to organize them, and then there will be Shahid Bhai’s support so it will not be tough,” he added.
Karachi Kings will be coached by Mickey Arthur and Azhar Mehmood, the same duo that coaches Pakistan team. However, the 29-year old all-rounder believes that coaching staff will not make much of a difference, it will players of the team that will either lead the side to win or lose in the ground.
“Coaches can only support you mentally and physically, but players have to perform in the ground, so it is players who will make the real difference, the coaching staff can only guide you and formulate a plan,” he said.
Imad Wasim is excited to see the 20-year old all-rounder, Hasan Mohsin in Karachi Kings and feels that he holds a bright future ahead.
“I have seen Hasan [Mohsin] play, he was with us last year too, he is a very good player, the way he has performed at the U-19 level and in the domestic circuit, he looks like a bright prospect for us,” he stated.
Multan Sultans addition as the sixth team in the PSL will help the standard of the game to improve and will give more opportunities to local players.
“There were many players in our domestic circuit that did not make it to PSL in the first two seasons, the strength of Multan Sultans reflects how many talented players were left in the previous editions, the induction of the sixth team will surely make the competition stiffer,” he said.
The final of the Pakistan Super League’s third edition is scheduled to be played in Karachi on March 25. Karachiites will see international stars in action after almost nine years.
Imad assured Karachi Kings’ fans that they will give their best and will look to perform better than the previous two seasons.
“We will give our 100 percent and I assure that we will perform better than the last two seasons of the PSL,” he concluded.
