The Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) is just a month ahead and the preparations are already going on. With the HBL PSL draft being done, the schedule has also been on-screened. Each team has made sure to choose the full-strength squad to clinch the HBL PSL 6 title with their deliverances.
Preview and Analysis:
Talking about the current champions Karachi Kings, the side is terrific either in the batting or bowling depart and can be mentioned as one of the bests among the six. The management has cleverly retained the solid performers but one might recognize releasing Alex Hales and Umar Khan as a blunder they have caused. Hales has remained outstanding with the bat whereas, Umar’s spinning techniques aren’t behind the walls.
Reviewing the last match KK played, it was the final that took place against the Qalandars. Kings spared five wickets chasing the target, however, the batters weren’t that inspiring but the bowlers stunned each picking two wickets except Imad who grabbed one, and Amir, who remained wicketless. The performances of the emerging talent and the players chosen from domestic will be soon witnessed by 20th February.
However, exchanging Alex Hales for the worth of Ingram might cost them. Ingram also had been stunning in the previous seasons played for Kings but one might not neglect the mid-order services of Hales who was often needed to smash some boundaries when the wickets fell apart.
