ISLAMABAD UNITED COACH
The team GM is Rehanul Haq, and the bowling coach is Saeed Ajmal. While Azhar Mehmood is going to be the coach of the team.
Azhar Mehmood as a coach – Is he good?
Azhar Mehmood as a player? Phenomenal. That is the only world that can describe his career as a cricketer. He was a bowling all-rounder who had experience playing cricket all over the world. Be it IPL or his stint in the county cricket, he has been the core wherever he went.
But is he equally suitable as a coach? Let’s try to answer this question. If we talk about PSL, he was one of the senior mentors for Islamabad United in 2016. If you are a United fan, then you remember that year because it was the inaugural season of PSL, and Islamabad United won it. United, we win!
Azhar Mehmood was named Pakistan’s bowling coach in November 2016. During that year, he had two brief periods in a similar state with the national squad.
He was the bowling consultant for the Pakistan team that lifted the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy and rose to the top of the ICC T20I standings. Azhar was the Bowling Coach for the Multan Sultans, who won their maiden PSL championship in 2021. He was named the head coach for the United last year.
Will he guide the ISLU toward their 3rd title? Let’s watch PSL together to find this out.
CAPTAIN OF ISLAMABAD UNITED
Shadab khan is going to be the captain of Islamabad united. It is not like he was just handed the position out of the blue. He has been serving as vice-captain for quite some time now. And how he has been given a chance as a captain. His bombastic batting and sly wrist spin make him a great value addition to the team. But what is going to be beneficial for him as a captain is his aggressive attitude?
BATSMAN OF ISLAMABAD UNITED SQUAD
In the batsman of Islamabad, the following are playing as batsmen
- Asif Ali
- Alex Hales
- Colin Munro
- Hassan Nawaz
You can pretty much see that this batting lineup is going to be fire. Not only do they have a bombastic player like Asif Ali, but they also have both left-hand and right-hand combinations. This is going to be very helpful for Islamabad United. Seems like the selectors did a pretty decent job on this one.
BOWLERS OF ISLAMABAD UNITED SQUAD
In the bowlers of Islamabad, United, five Pakistani players are used, and their names are given below:
- Muhammad Wasim Jnr
- Fazal Haq Farooqi
- Hasan Ali
- Rumman Raees
- Abrar Ahmad
The interesting thing about this bowling lineup is the return of Ruman Raees. He is now back in action.
ALL-ROUNDERS OF ISLAMABAD UNITED
In all-rounders of Islamabad United
- Paul Stirling
- Shadab Khan
- Faheem Ashraf
- Zeeshan amir
- Moeen Ali
- Mubasir khan
All of these have played for Pakistan at some point in their careers. We can say they are bowling all-rounders but are not short on the batting department. Can we forget those sixes from Shadab and Faheem?
In overseas players of Islamabad, United, six players are used, and their names are given below:
- Colin Munro
- Alex Hales
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz
- Fazal Haq Farooqi
- Paul Stirling
- Moeen Ali
The lineup of international players looks very interesting this year. These are impactful players who have won matches for their national sides.
Munro is the T20 opener you want in a T20 squad. He has a strike rate of over 150 and averages 30 as an opening batsman in T20i. He can provide ISLU with the quick runs they need in powerplays.
Moeen Ali has evolved into a useful all-rounder. He entered the scene as a batsman, but he has improved his bowling to the point where he can get breakthroughs for the team. His fellow English Batsman, Alex Hales, will also represent ISLU.
Hales has been a tremendous help to the United and consistently provided good starts for the team. Gurbaz, with a firey attitude, can destroy any bowling line-ups. And with Paul’s experience in the mix, the team’s dugout becomes a mixture of different flavors that everyone can benefit from.
ISLAMABAD UNITED WON ANY TITLE
Yes, this PSL team Islamabad United, won 2 times this PSL title, one win in 2016 and the other won in 2018, so this has been a great performance in Pakistan Super League.
