    Pakistan's local system has enough talent to field 2 more teams with U25 players
    Also it gives every player in age group U20-U28 a chance to rub shoulders with High calibre players on big stage


    Notable names being mentioned on different forums

    Zeeshan Malik
    Saif Badar
    Hassan Mohsin
    Kamran Ghulam
    Arshad Iqbal
    Mohammad Husnain
    Saim Ayub
    Mohammad Arif
    Mukhtar Ahmed
    Nauman Anwar
    Bilal Asif
    Salman Irshad
    Ahmed Bashir

    There is enough Senior Talent to help new group of players to get noticed as well

    Razzak had shown interest to be player or Captain , should have been considered as option
    as a Captain, Putting in hours at Gym to be in playing shape

    The Senior players Age 28-40 should all be given full chance to play and pass their knowledge to Junior emerging players

    Islamabad United 147 for 3 (Ronchi 67*, Samit Patel 45*, Imad 2-27) beat Karachi Kings 143 for 6 (Dunk 49*, Ameer Yamin 35*, Faheem 3-26) by seven wickets


    How the game played out

    Having gotten over their traditional slow start, Islamabad have begun cranking through the gears. A Luke Ronchi special - 67 off 35 - was more than enough to see off Karachi in a below-par chase of 144, in the process sending out a warning to all the other franchises. One of the most complete, all round performances by any side all season, Islamabad's bowlers had their foot on Karachi throats from the moment Rumman Raees dismissed Colin Munro - perhaps Karachi's version of Ronchi - in the first over.

    There was an element of self-destruction to Karachi's innings. While they lost wickets to a relentlessly brilliant pace attack, Babar Azam succumbed to a needless runout, taking away Karachi's last realistic chance of a seriously challenging total. Shadab Khan, captaining in the absence of Mohammad Sami due to a knock, was superb across his spell, conceding just 18 runs off his four overs (the same number Kieron Pollard smashed him for off his last over just yesterday). Before long, they were 74 for six, and it required the firefighting efforts of Ben Dunk and Aamer Yamin to make hay of a rare wayward spell by Islamabad's bowlers. The pair put together 69 runs in the last 37 balls, ensuring the game would at least be competitive.

    Karachi needed a glut of early wickets, but following the early runout of Cameron Delport, Ronchi had set about putting a swift end to any hopes Mickey Arthur's side might have harboured. He, and later Samit Patel, ensured this win didn't just bring two points, but also a statement of real intent from the two-time champions.

    Luke Ronchi takes the aerial route on the leg side PSL
    Turning point

    When Cameron Delport was run out in the first over, it was a sign Karachi may have carried the momentum of the death overs into the second innings, determined to turn this into one of those nasty, low-scoring scraps. But a wayward over from Aamer Yamin that followed conceded 9 runs, and Mohammad Amir was smacked for three fours by Sahibzada Farhan in the third. This was before Ronchi had even got started, and when he did, the end was mercifully swift.

    Star of the day

    The joy of having Ronchi in your side is he bats in the second innings like he would in the first. Regardless of the target, the former New Zealand and Australia international attacks, literally, from ball one. Smashing Mohammad Amir over long-on off the first ball of the chase put his side in command from the outset. There was to be no let-up, with successive sixes off Usman Shinwari and one off Karachi captain Imad Wasim helping him hurtle to a 22-ball 50. By then, the asking rate was below six, and Ronchi could take a back seat while Samit Patel helped whittle down the runs.

    The big miss

    Colin Munro has the second highest strike rate among active T20I batsmen with 162. Like his New Zealand teammate Ronchi, he opens the batting, and tees off from ball one. He has three T20I hundreds; only Rohit Sharma with four betters that. In theory, he's supposed to be a younger, fitter, sexier version of Ronchi, and that mini-contest promised to lend a fascinating subplot to this particular fixture. However, much like Glenn McGrath against Sachin Tendulkar in the 2003 World Cup final, this was a damp squib. While Ronchi's heroics saw him win his side the game, Munro holed out at deep fine leg off the first ball he faced. Karachi's trump card had been played and fluffed, and it was a hole Islamabad never allowed them to dig out of.

    Where the teams stand

    Two wins on the trot sees Islamabad leap to second place, with 6 points, while just one win in four means Karachi remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

    Zalmi's Hasan Ali displayed a powerhouse bowling spell taking four wickets for his team, three of which were picked up in the 19th over.

    Johnson Charles was the lead scorer for Multan putting 53 runs on the scoreboard before being set back to the pavilion. He was followed by skipper Shoaib Malik with 22 runs.

    His first partner, Kamran Akmal was the first wicket to go at the end of the first over. He posted just 4 runs off 3 balls.

    Dawid Malan and Liam Dawson contributed 38 and 18 runs respectively.

    After Kieron Pollard's back to back explosive sixes, Darren Sammy and Wahab Riaz did the rest to get Zalmi to the finish line with five wickets intact.

    Fantastic Ingram powers Kings past Gladiators
    Pakistan Super League season four is currently being played in UAE

    Colin Ingram scored a brilliant century as Karachi Kings ended Quetta Gladiators' unbeaten run, during the ongoing Pakistan Super League in Sharjah.

    Chasing a target of 187 runs, Kings found themselves in a spot of bother when they lost two wickets, including that of Babar Azam, with just four runs on the board.

    At this stage Ingram came in to bat with the required rate close to ten runs per over.

    He took a few deliveries to settle in but once he was set, he smacked Gladiators bowlers to all over the park. He remained unbeaten on 127 off just 59 balls with the help of 12 fours eight sixes and a strike-rate of 215.25.

    This was the highest individual score in PSL ever and also the fastest hundred in the tournament's history.

    Earlier Gladiators posted 186-5 in their allotted 20 overs, courtesy a good half-century from Umar Akmal and a valuable contribution from Rilee Rossouw. They scored 55 and 44 runs respectively.

    For his brilliant innings, Ingram bagged the award for the player of the match.

    • This season has seen a drop in Kamran Akmal's consistent performance for 3 years and he is not in the top 10 talk
    • Yasir Shah has only 1 wicket and has been a massive failiure
    • Darren Sami has not been influential , with bat scoring a mere 24 runs so far
    • Misbah has been benched even scoring 49 in his only innings
