Pakistan Super League will kick-start today after a glitzy opening ceremony in National Stadium Karachi.

Peshawar Zalmi, who will start their PSL campaign tomorrow, already suffered a blow when their key players including Wahab Riaz, Kamran Akmal and Haider Ali tested positive for the virus.

Since the captain will not be available, Shoaib Malik will honour leading the team in the first game of the franchise against Quetta Gladiators on 28th January.

Riaz has been sent to complete the required quarantine. He will join the squad after the isolation is over and a negative result is returned. Shoaib Malik had previously captained Multan Sultans before he was taken over by Shan Masood.

Meanwhile, Haider Ali has returned back to the camp after getting a negative test. Kamran Akmal is also going through quarantine and will return back once cleared.

Earlier the franchise has announced the inclusion of Ammad Butt and Imam-ul-Haq as their partial replacements.v
