Pakistan’s premier limited-overs all-rounder, Imad Wasim, displayed his eagerness to face off against his international captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators are scheduled to face off in the upcoming PSL fixture.
Imad is leading the Karachi Kings this season in the absence of Kumar Sangakkara. Sanga was bagged by brand new Multan Sultans franchise in the tournament.
The Pakistani all-rounder is now looking forward to facing off against his former franchise. Quetta Gladiators, on the other hand, are led by spirited Sarfraz Ahmed.
“I am really looking forward to the match against Sarfraz. They have done really well in the last two seasons and are of course confident for this one as well. We also have big names such as Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Amir in the side,” stated Imad Wasim according to The Tribune.
The team is also loaded with International stars such as Lendl Simmons, Colin Ingram, Tymal Mills, and Eoin Morgan. Just days after the IPL auctions, Karachi Kings received a serious blow after Mitchell Johnson pulled out of PSL this season.
“While our young players have the potential to trouble any side on their day. I will be looking towards experienced players for advice while captaining the side in the third edition,” added Wasim.
On Mir Hamza
Furthermore, within the Quetta camp, the onus would be on the likes of Rilee Rossouw, Jason Roy, Kevin Pietersen, Jofra Archer, Rashid Khan and Shane Watson to star in the campaign. Also, Pakistan’s U-19 sensation Mir Humza will deputize Sarfraz in the upcoming matches.
“He has a lot of potentials. Hamza playing well in U19 and domestic cricket. I am really forward to seeing him play,” said the Swansea born International on Mir Humza.
“It’s all about performing on a given day. If you are able to do so then you will be on top. I am confident that Quetta can deliver what everyone is expecting from them against Karachi,” quoted Hamza prior to the second match of PSL.
