Islamabad United: The Golden Legacy

Islamabad United: The Golden Legacy


As the season of PSL begins, so begins the reign of Islamabad United.

If you’ve seen any season of PSL, you’d know that Islamabad United is the most dominant team in the league. Islamabad has won 2 out of 4 PSL titles and have been the favourites of all four seasons.

Last season, they were successful enough to make it to the semi finals but were then knocked out by Peshawar Zalmi after an extremely competitive game. For this season, Islamabad United are expected to win again, with an outstandingly strong lineup. Including dynamites like Shadab Khan, Dale Steyn, Colin Ingram waiting to explode.

The team also has extremely dangerous players like Luke Ronchi, Hussain Talat and Rumman Raees. This season is especially promising for United to regain their championship title.

Islamabad United has also included some very talented rising stars like Aqif Javed and Ahmed Safi Abdullah who will be playing an integral part in the season for Islamabad.

Last year, in what was exciting news for the Islamabad United fans, Waqar Younis joined the side as their fast bowling coach. Earlier, they had lost the services of Wasim Akram to Multan Sultans. Australia’s Dean Jones is the head coach while Shoaib Akhtar is the bowling coach for Islamabad United.

Islamabad United has a legacy to carry unlike other teams that will be trying to create their legacies. They will be opening up the league in their clash against Quetta Gladiators on the 20th Feb, 2020.

The complete Islamabad United squad is as follows:

  • Shadab Khan
  • Faheem Ashraf
  • Asif Ali
  • Luke Ronchi
  • Hussain Talat
  • Amad Butt
  • Musa Khan
  • Rizwan Hussain

  • Akif Javed

With such a brilliant line up, we can only hope that they go easy on the other teams.
