“It doesn’t matter whether the players come or go. I think, my statement should not be taken in a negative context,” Imad requested.
“We will try to make combinations with the best players available as the PSL is very important for us,” he added.
The Kings’ captain further commented regarding his team’s ace pacer Mohammad Amir, who could not partake in the previous edition of the PSL due to injury, stating he will be a game-changer for the side.
“Amir suffered an injury in the last season which disturbed our combination and dented our campaign. But, I think, this time he’s fit and has been playing cricket all over the world so he will play a key role for us,” he stated.
It is pertinent to mention here that PSL season 8 will kick off on February 13 in Multan with a grand opening ceremony followed by the curtain-raiser between defending champions Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans.
