Karachi Kings Squad for PSL 2019 – Will they lift the cup in season 4?

Karachi Kings is one of the popular T-20 teams in Pakistan. This team participates in Pakistan Super League, a yearly tournament. The fourth edition will begin from February 14 in United Arab Emirates (UAE). This team represents Karachi which is the provincial Capital of Sindh, Pakistan. Under the captaincy of Imad Wasim, the franchise has a fairly strong team for the upcoming season. As I am also a Karachiite, I will be happy to see Karachi Kings lifting the trophy this time.
