Pakistan Test captain Shan Masood has been traded to Karachi Kings ahead of the Pakistan Super Kings (PSL) 2024. The southpaw moved from Multan Sultans and in swap wrist spinner Faisal Akram will be now moving from Karachi.

Karachi Kings as a part of trade will also give away their first pick in the diamond and silver round categories of the draft. Shan Masood has been one of the finest batters in Pakistan cricket and captained Multan Sultans in 2020. He also was part of the title-winning run in 2021.

Karachi Kings were also in need of a skipper after Imad Wasim left the team. It’s now expected that Shan Masood will be captaining the team. He has a decent record as a skipper in the league and also has played some great knocks with the bat.

Shan Masood so far has played 42 matches in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and has racked up 1318 runs. The southpaw slammed 209 runs from just seven games during Multan Sultans’ title-winning run in 2021. He was the third-leading run-getter in the tournament.
