Experts about PSL

Who are you rooting for?

Karachi Kings. I’ve spent 24 of my 28 years on this planet in Karachi, so it kind of feels like home now.

Who do you think will actually win PSL 4, and why?

Karachi Kings, because every supporter is sure his team will win. On a serious note, their lack of power-hitters may once again come back to haunt them and that Islamabad United side does look pretty threatening.

Who will finish last and why?

Karachi Kings, because every supporter is sure his team will finish last. On a serious note, Multan Sultans seem to be the team with the most question marks around them and may well struggle in their second season.

Who will score the most runs in the tournament?

Fakhar Zaman. Where else will he vent all that pent-up frustration from his poor South Africa tour? Or maybe Babar Azam. Where else will he use all that confidence from his superb South Africa tour?

Name your pick for the highest wicket-taker.

Shaheen Shah Afridi. He’s too inexperienced to not be targeted by the batsmen and he is too good to not take wickets when he is.

Name one player who you think will surprise everyone.

Misbah ul Haq, he’s only 44. I also expect some bowlers to emerge as a breath of fresh air, mainly because it is Pakistan and they are bowlers.

Who are you rooting for?

Karachi Kings, obviously. I live and work in this city!

Who do you think will actually win PSL 4, and why?

Lahore Qalandars, because for one, they have AB de Villiers, and two, they surely must be fed up of finishing at the bottom.

Who will finish last and why?

Multan Sultans because they have already been through a lot in during their short time in the league. Their rebirth and the stress associated with it could count against them.

Who will score the most runs in the tournament?

Some foreign player, not a Pakistani one, of that I’m sure. My money would be on Luke Ronchi, especially after what he did last year. He is for United what Mohamed Salah is for Liverpool: red kit, little talk, all magic.

Name your pick for the highest wicket-taker.

Wahab Riaz, but only if he wears that Mitchell Johnson-esque moustache again. And if not him, then some random foreigner. Don’t care about them; too patriotic to support anyone else.

Name one player who you think will surprise everyone.

Sahibzada Farhan, for his ability to mix big shots with classy strokes.

Name one player who will be the biggest letdown.

Sarfraz Ahmed. He is not a power hitter but this format requires batters to be one. He is also under pressure, not as much as he was before the captaincy presser but still. I feel the beginning of the end of the Sarfraz chapter has begun.

Make a random PSL prediction (could be anything).

Hasan Ali will take a hat trick.
