Former England wicket-keeper batter James Foster has been appointed as the new head coach for Peshawar Zalmi for the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), announced the team’s Chairman Javed Afridi.

The decision has been taken due to the unavailability of ex-West Indian cricketer Darren Sammy owing to his busy schedule.


Javed Afridi said that the services of former South African batter Hashim Amla have been taken as batting coach for Zalmi. Foster had been associated with Zalmi for two years as an assistant coach.

In addition to this, former Pakistan bowler Mohammad Akram has been appointed as the team's director and bowling coach. Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is the honorary president of Peshawar Zalmi.

In his statement, Javed Afridi said, "I express my best wishes for Peshawar Zalmi Management."

PSL 2022 all set to kick off tomorrow

The wait is about to over for cricket fans as the thrilling seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League is all set to commence on Thursday (tomorrow) at the iconic National Stadium in Karachi with defending champions Multan Sultans facing off 2020 champions Karachi Kings following a curtain-raiser opening ceremony.

Babar Azam, who made the record for most T20I wins as captain in a calendar year with 20 in 2021 and was crowned ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year, will lead Karachi Kings while, Mohammad Rizwan, the first-ever batter to score more than 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year, will head the Multan Sultans.

25% crowd attendance for Karachi-leg matches

As per the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) directive, the seating capacity has been reduced to 25% for all matches in Karachi, while a decision on the number of spectators in Lahore to be taken in due course. The health and safety protocols for this edition is available here

Lahore Qalandars, captained by young Shaheen Shah Afridi, who has had a stratospheric rise in international cricket since his debut in 2018, will hope the change in leadership leads to a change in their fortunes and they secure the glittering trophy.

Will Shahid Afridi not play PSL 2022?​


By Atiq ur Rehman

KARACHI: Quetta Gladiators suffered a jolt Wednesday when former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi requested the franchise management to release him just one day before the start of the Pakistan Super League due to medical and personal reasons.

The flamboyant batter has asked Quetta Gladiators to excuse him from the bio-secure bubble, sources informed Geo News Wednesday.

The sources familiar with the matter told the media outlet that Afridi has told the management that he is suffering from back pain and his sister-in-law has passed away.

"Shahid Afridi's children are alone at home [...] and due to these reasons he wants to pull out from the bio-secure bubble," the sources added.

The much-awaited tournament is set to begin at National Stadium in Karachi tomorrow — and it is unfortunate to see that the player, who has played numerous matches in the city, may likely not get to play his farewell match.

HBL PSL 7 begins on Thursday​


The Frontier Post


HBL-PSL-7-begins-on-Thursday-1.jpg



KARACHI (APP): The stage is set for the seventh edition of HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) to commence on Thursday at the iconic National Stadium in Karachi with defending champions Multan Sultans facing off 2020 champions Karachi Kings following a curtain-raiser opening ceremony.

Babar Azam, who made the record for most T20I wins as captain in a calendar year with 20 in 2021, will lead Karachi Kings. Mohammad Rizwan, first-ever batter to score more than 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year, will lead Multan Sultans, said a PCB spokesman.

Babar Azam said, “I am very excited to be leading Karachi Kings this season. This is the first instance that I will be captaining a side in the HBL PSL and I am looking forward to it. “The first match of the tournament always has a lot of eyeballs and Multan Sultans can prove to be a tough opposition. I am sure the fans will get to see a thrilling contest.

“Peter Moores is a seasoned coach and I have had fruitful discussions with him. Karachi Kings will display good, competitive cricket this season.” Mohammad Rizwan said, “We have all the potential to defend our HBL PSL title and we will be taking the field tomorrow with that mind set. This season will present us new challenges and we will have to plan accordingly.

“Babar Azam is a wonderful batter and captain, and his leadership will certainly have a good impact on Karachi Kings. I am hopeful that the HBL PSL 7 will kick off with a great contest between the two sides.”

As per the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) directive, the seating capacity has been reduced to 25 per cent for all matches in Karachi, while a decision on the number of spectators in Lahore to be taken in due course. The health and safety protocols for this edition is available here. On the second match day on Friday, Quetta Gladiators will play against Peshawar Zalmi with the match starting at 2pm PKT, while the third match day on Saturday will serve the fans a double-header with Multan Sultans playing Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings taking on Quetta Gladiators.

Lahore Qalandars, captained by Shaheen Shah Afridi, who has had stratospheric rise in international cricket since his debut in 2018, will hope the change in leadership leads to a change in their fortunes and they secure the glittering trophy. Islamabad United are led by Shadab Khan. Sarfaraz Ahmed, who is the only player to lead his side in all the editions, will continue to command his Gladiators from Quetta, while Peshawar Zalmi will be led by Wahab Riaz.

The HBL PSL has established itself as one of the top T20 leagues around the world and it has featured most sought-after cricketers from around the world. The competitiveness of this league and the quality of action has served up and coming Pakistan cricketers opportunities to learn, enhance their skills and learn nitty-gritties of the game.

National Stadium will host the first 15 matches till 7 February, before the action moves to Lahore, where Gaddafi Stadium, the home of Pakistan cricket, will stage the last 19 games from 10-27 February. The competitive nature of the league has seen five of the six sides getting crowned champions since the league’s inception in 2016 with Islamabad United, the inaugural champions, being the only team to bag the title twice.

Peshawar Zalmi won the title in 2017 when they beat Quetta Gladiators in the final in Lahore in what was the first HBL PSL match on Pakistan soil.

Islamabad United became the champions for the second time with a win over Peshawar Zalmi at Karachi in 2018. Quetta Gladiators were third time lucky in 2019. Karachi Kings made history in 2020 as they beat their arch-rivals Lahore Qalandars at home.
The PCB has also adopted the ICC’s recent playing conditions. If a side are not in a position to field their last over of the innings on scheduled time, one fewer fielder will be permitted outside of the 30-yard circle for the remaining overs of the innings. There will be reserve day for the final and in case a result is not achieved, then the side topping the group stage will be declared champions. Amendments in playing conditions are available here.

PM Imran Khan opens PSL 7 with dramatic 'TikTok-esque' video and people are impressed


IMAGES STAFF

The video has fans both confused and intrigued as they admit "PM ka #LevelHai."

61f1013f8ca7f.png



PSL 7 begins tomorrow (Jan 27) and it's already got the stamp of approval from the prime minister. The teams have been dropping teasers, anthems and brand ambassador announcements, but many think the PSL has the best ambassador of all — Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The PTI posted a video of the PM opening the tournament two days before it actually opened with the caption, "PM Imran Khan's message on the PSL" and the hashtag #LevelHai." The video features PM Imran's former teammate and current PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja walking in slow motion towards him with dramatic music in the background, on his way to see the PM and make the announcement for the opening.

"I'm opening the seventh PSL and I hope every team fights till the last ball and entertains the public," PM Imran addressed the camera before using his index finger to transform the screen to the PSL's green.


A few hours later, the PSL shared the same video on Twitter and said, "Just a preview of what's to come. Catch all the action starting from our curtain raiser on 27th January at 6:30 PM. Kon araha hai stadium [Who is coming to the stadium]?"

Some fans joked that the PTI may have posted earlier by mistake.

Others really liked the slow motion walk!

PSL 7 kicks off with colourful opening ceremony at Karachi's National Stadium

The much-anticipated seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) kicked off in Karachi on Saturday with an impressive opening ceremony at Karachi's National Stadium.

Singers Atif Aslam and Aima Baig tuned up the heat on a cold Karachi evening by performing this year's anthem 'Agay Dekh'.
Prime Minister Imran Khan's special message to PSL teams was also played during the ceremony, followed by a vibrant fireworks display.

The ceremony will be followed by a match between defending champions Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings. Pakistan skipper Babar Azam will lead the Kings while wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan is the captain for Sultans.


The recent rise of coronavirus cases across Pakistan has forced the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to limit spectators in Karachi — which will host matches until Feb 7 — to 25 per cent only, following recommendations by the National Command and Operation Centre.

No such decision has been taken for Lahore yet, with the city’s Gaddafi Stadium set to host PSL matches from February 10 to 27, including the final.
It’s not only the fans who have to face restrictions due to the pandemic.

The PCB has arranged strict bio-secure bubbles for the six franchise sides, with the intent to avoid delays at any cost. According to the playing conditions set by the board’s technical committee, matches will go ahead even if 13 players out of the teams’ 20-man squads are available

In a situation where the player availability is even lower, affected teams will be allowed to pick from a reserve pool. If a Covid-19 outbreak occurs, the tournament will be halted for seven days, bio-secure bubbles will be reset from scratch and double-headers will be held in the remaining days to meet the February 27 deadline.

Despite these steps, the pandemic has already put a dampener of the event before its start. Earlier today, Quetta Gladiators announced that all-rounder Shahid Afridi would miss the start of PSL after testing positive for coronavirus.

The first leg of 15 matches will be played in Karachi from Jan 27 to Feb 7, while the remaining 19 matches will be held in Lahore from Feb 10-27.

The seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 is upon us. The opening match of the tournament sees Karachi Kings host defending champions Multan Sultans at National Stadium Karachi tonight. The game is expected to kick off at 7pm but not before a star-studded opening ceremony formally declares the tournament open for business.

Ahead of the tournament opener, here is all you need to know about the two teams that will be in action tonight:

Karachi Kings​

What did they do in offseason?​

Karachi Kings have had a bit of an English takeover recently, with a number of their personnel, including their new coach, being from Egland.


Karachi Kings have had a bit of an English takeover recently, with a number of their personnel, including their new coach, being from Egland.

Karachi Kings made two major leadership changes during the offseason. They took away the captaincy from Imad Wasim and handed it to Babar Azam and also appointed Peter Moores as their new head coach, with the Englishman succeeding Herschelle Gibbs in the role.

The Kings have had a bit of an English takeover recently. Their new coach is English while they re-signed Joe Clarke and recruited Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan and Ian Cockbain – all from England.

West Indies’ Romario Shepherd was supposed to join them but international commitments means that he was replaced by yet another Englishman: Tom Lammonby.

They also brought back veteran pacer Umaid Asif from Peshawar Zalmi.

How did they fare last year?​

Having won their maiden title in 2020, the Kings were the defending champions last year but did not have a great campaign, finishing joint fourth and making it to the playoffs only due to better run rate. They ran out of luck in the playoffs where they fell on the very first hurdle against Peshawar Zalmi in a match where Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai put them to sword.

Strengths and weaknesses​

Mohammad Amir was in poor form during PSL 2021 and his form will be key to Karachi's performance this season.


Mohammad Amir was in poor form during PSL 2021 and his form will be key to Karachi's performance this season.

The Kings’ top three look stupendous. They have Babar Azam’s reliance, Sharjeel Khan’s explosiveness, while Joe Clarke brings a bit of both to the table. Innings anchoring will not be a problem as there exists Babar. Even Sahibzada Farhan can do that job for a bit, if given the opportunity.

For finishing touches towards the end, they’d rely on Mohammad Nabi and Gregory, although playing them both at the same time might prove to be a bit tricky.

While the Kings have arguably the most impressive top three in the competition, their quality starts to wane after that and post-number six it completely falls off the roof. Their tail is a bit longer than what’s seemed ideal.

The bowling unit will again be led by Mohammad Amir but the pacer was completely out of sorts in last PSL. With Jordan by his side, however, there is hope for a revival. In all, bowling definitely is the main weakness of Karachi, which means their batters will have to work much harder to put bigger than usual totals on the board.

Word is that Amir is injured for tonight's game, while Imad and Jordan are unavailable due to Covid. If that is the case, Karachi, with already thin numbers, will be at a significant disadvantage.

Multan Sultans​


What did they do in offseason?​

Powerful Singapore hitter Tim David, who played for Lahore Qalandars last season, has joined Multan.


Powerful Singapore hitter Tim David, who played for Lahore Qalandars last season, has joined Multan.

The biggest thing Multan Sultans did in 2021 is just sitting back and watching the incredible rise and rise of their captain Mohammad Rizwan. The pint-sized wicketkeeper-batsman with a dynamite game was already on the rise in the last PSL but has further enhanced his reputation over the past six months, and was recently named the ICC T20I Cricketer of the Year for 2021.

On the recruitments front, they’ve added Singapore’s Tim David to their side. The 6’5 batter has a massive game as Lahore fans would attest to and is now a regular in all major leagues.

The Sultans did let go James Vince, Shahid Afridi and Sohail Tanvir but they’ve signed the former’s replacement while the latter two were no more major contributors. Usman Qadir is also off to Peshawar but he was Imran Tahir’s understudy anyway.


How did they fare last year?​


The Sultans started the 2021 tournament poorly, winning just one of their opening five games before a Covid outbreak saw the league postponed for a few months. The break got them a proverbial shot in the arm (pun absolutely intended!) and when the league resumed, they were a different side altogether. A side that couldn’t get a win over the first leg went on a tear in the second leg, winning six of their next seven matches to clinch their maiden title.

Strengths and weaknesses​


After Shahid Afridi and Usman Qadir's departures, Imran Tahir remains Multan's sole top level spin option.


After Shahid Afridi and Usman Qadir's departures, Imran Tahir remains Multan's sole top level spin option.

The Sultans are absolutely stuffed with power hitters. Their possible middle order could end up featuring names such as Sohaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Tim David, Khushdil Shah, David Willey – all scary hitters. Even Anwar Ali at number eight can hit a few out of the park while Rovman Powell is no slouch either.

But like the Kings, the Sultans’ tail can also be slightly long as neither of Imran Tahir, Imran Khan, Blessing Muzarabani and Shahnawaz Dahani can bat even a little bit, but then all four do not necessarily need to play at once.

Sohail Tanvir’s departure is offset by David Willey and Anwar Ali’s arrivals but there is one area of concern: the spin department. Where the Sultans had Imran Tahir, Shahid Afridi and Usman Qadir’s services last year, they only have the former left with now. Tahir is well into his 40s now and expecting him to carry the spin burden for the entire tournament is perhaps asking too much.

Playing XIs (tentative and unconfirmed)​


Karachi Kings: Babar Azam, Joe Clarke, Sharjeel Khan, Rohail Nazir, Mohammad Nabi, Lewis Gregory, Aamer Yamin, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Taha Khan, Mohammad Ilyas, Mohammad Amir
Multan Sultans: Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Sohaib Maqsood, Tim David, Rilee Rossouw, Khushdil Shah, David Willey, Shahnawaz Dahani, Rumman Raees, Imran Khan, Imran Tahir

Who has the edge?​


On paper, the Kings are supposed to enjoy home advantage but considering that only 8,000 fans are allowed at NSK and the Kings have no added knowledge of local conditions, any edge will only be academic.
Compare the two sides and it becomes evident from a cursory look that Multan Sultans pack more punch and just have greater overall talent. Some of their players could be rusty due to not having played competitive cricket of late so they may again start a little slow but as the tournament progresses, Multan should gradually improve and eventually look scary good.
