Kings’ captain Imad confident of taking a good start against Zalmi

From our correspondent
KARACHI: Karachi Kings skipper Imad Wasim on Thursday said that his team is balanced and effort would be made to take a good start against a very good team Peshawar Zalmi in their HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 opener here at National Stadium on Friday (today).
“No doubt Peshawar are a very good side but we also have a solid combination and effort would be made to deliver tomorrow,” Imad told a news conference here on Thursday.
“Its not difficult to name a single player as every player of our pool has a role in the team. I hope that Sharjeel makes a comeback,” Imad said. The hard-hitting opener Sharjeel returned to competitive cricket following serving ban due to corruption in cricket.
Imad stressed that taking a solid start was very important.  
“Obviously Karachi is our home. I really enjoyed cricket here last year. All players and particularly the overseas are very excited. Its important to take a solid start in the first game of the event and to tell the competing teams how better is our team,” Imad said.
“We should work on it,” he was quick to add. Imad said Karachi wicket was always good.
“In Karachi pitch is always good as here matches are high-scoring. Today’s game between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators will show exactly what will happen as most probably our game will also be on the same wicket,” the all-rounder said.
Imad strongly defended Sharjeel who is set to return to competitive cricket.
“He is returning to cricket after a long time and that too at the biggest event. He should be given time. But the way he batted in the practice match I think whose match report will have been got by media so we are very much satisfied,” Imad said.
Imad said that his main plan is to score 170 and plus as it is very important.
