It is yet to see who will be a part of the team this year under the supervision of Misbah-ul-Haq.
Karachi Kings has to work hard to win the hearts and to make a comeback while ensuring to satisfy the excitement of fans. Well… it happened for the very first time that Karachi Kings won PSL tournament while giving a tough time to Lahore Qalandars. With players like Babar Azam and Mohammed Amir in their team, Karachi Kings are set to defend their title this season.
Lahore Qalandars holds a unique significance among the PSL teams in every season. This is not because it has marked a win in all the games. Rather it is because this team has been consistent in failures. However, in PSL 2020, Lahore Qalandars gave fans hope as the team made it to the finals for the first time in their history. Now, fans are excited to see if their dream to have Lahore Qalandars as the winner of PSL 2021 could come true.
