Ace Pacer Naseem Shah Joins Islamabad United

The cricket fraternity buzzes with excitement as Islamabad United announces the inclusion of Naseem Shah in a significant swap deal. The 20-year-old pacer, previously with Quetta Gladiators, becomes the focal point of discussions among PSL franchises.

Triumph in the Race

Despite strong rumors linking Naseem Shah to Multan Sultans or Peshawar Zalmi, Islamabad United emerges triumphant in securing the young pacer’s signature. This strategic move positions Islamabad United as a formidable contender, acquiring two of the best players ahead of the much-anticipated PSL 9 draft.

Player Movements: Abrar Ahmed and Muhammad Wasim Jr to Quetta Gladiators

While Islamabad United gains Naseem Shah, the team witnesses the departure of Abrar Ahmed and Muhammad Wasim Jr. Both players, who previously represented United, make a significant move to Quetta Gladiators. This exchange adds another layer of intrigue to the PSL player dynamics.

Imad Wasim’s Impactful Arrival

In another notable swap, Imad Wasim becomes a part of the United family, with Hasan Ali joining Karachi Kings in return. The left-handed all-rounder, Player of the Tournament in PSL 8, brings a wealth of experience and skill to Islamabad United.

Power-packed Squad

With a lineup boasting hard hitters like Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Azam Khan, and Asif Ali, along with all-rounders Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf, Islamabad United is poised to become a favorite for the upcoming PSL 9 season.

Iftikhar Ahmed Creates History

Iftikhar Ahmed, a versatile player who has represented Peshawar Zalmi, Karachi Kings, and Islamabad United in the past, joins Multan Sultans in a historic swap with Rilee Rossouw. This move makes Iftikhar the first player to play for five different teams in the league.

Multan Sultans’ Platinum Pick

The trade not only strengthens Multan Sultans’ lineup but also earns them the first platinum pick in the PSL 9 Draft, scheduled for December 13 in Lahore. This historic trade reshapes the dynamics of the upcoming season.

Rossouw’s Return to Quetta

Rilee Rossouw, part of the PSL-winning Quetta Gladiators team in 2019, rejoins his former team. His return adds experience and firepower, as demonstrated by his top-scoring performance in the 2019 final against Peshawar Zalmi.
