26 January 2022, Karachi: After a curtain-raiser opening ceremony, the seventh edition of the HBL Pakistan Super League will begin on Thursday at the storied National Stadium in Karachi with the defending champions, the Multan Sultans, taking on the 2020 champions, the Karachi Kings.
Karachi Kings will be led by Babar Azam, who holds the record for most T20I victories as captain in a calendar year with 20 in 2021. Multan Sultans will be led by Mohammad Rizwan, the first batter to score more than 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year.
Azam Babar: I am ecstatic to be in charge of the Karachi Kings this season. I’m looking forward to it because this will be my first time captaining a team in the HBL PSL.
The Multan Sultans have the potential to be difficult opponents in the tournament’s opening match, which draws a lot of attention. I’m confident that the contest will be thrilling for the fans.
I have had productive conversations with Peter Moores, a seasoned coach. This season, Karachi Kings will play competitive, good cricket.
Muslim Rizwan: We intend to take the field tomorrow with the mindset that we have all the potential to defend our HBL PSL title. We will face new obstacles this season, so we need to prepare accordingly.
“Babar Azam is an excellent batsman and captain, and his leadership will undoubtedly benefit Karachi Kings. I’m hoping that the two teams will play a great match in the HBL PSL 7 opener.
The National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) has instructed that the seating capacity for all matches in Karachi has been reduced to 25%, while a decision regarding the number of spectators in Lahore will be made in due course. The health and safety guidelines for this edition can be found here. On Friday, Quetta Gladiators will play Peshawar Zalmi, and the game will start at 7:30 p.m. PKT. On Saturday, the third match day, Multan Sultans will play Lahore Qalandars, and Karachi Kings will play Quetta Gladiators.
The Lahore Qalandars, captained by Shaheen Shah Afridi, who made his debut in 2018 and has since skyrocketed in international cricket, will hope that the new leadership will change their fortunes and help them win the glistening trophy.
Shadab Khan is in charge of Islamabad United. Peshawar Zalmi will be led by Wahab Riaz, while Sarfaraz Ahmed, the only player to lead his team in all editions, will continue to lead his Gladiators from Quetta.
The HBL PSL has featured some of the most sought-after cricketers in the world and has established itself as one of the best T20 leagues in the world. Pakistani cricketers have had the opportunity to learn, improve their skills, and learn the ins and outs of the game thanks to this league’s high level of competition and action.
The first 15 games will be played at National Stadium until February 7, after which the action will move to Lahore, where the last 19 games will be played at Gaddafi Stadium, the home of Pakistan cricket, from 10 to 27 February.
Since the league’s inception in 2016, five of the six teams have won the title, with Islamabad United, the inaugural champions, being the only team to win it twice due to the league’s fierce competition.
Peshawar Zalmi defeated Quetta Gladiators in the 2017 title match, which was the first HBL PSL match played in Pakistan. In 2018, Islamabad United defeated Peshawar Zalmi in Karachi to win the title for the second time. In 2019, the Quetta Gladiators struck gold three times. When Karachi Kings defeated Lahore Qalandars at home in 2020, they made history.
Additionally, the PCB has adopted the ICC’s most recent playing rules. One less fielder will be allowed outside of the 30-yard circle for the remaining innings if a team is unable to field their final over on time. In the event that a result is not achieved on reserve day, the team that finishes first in the group stage will be crowned champions. Here, players can have their playing conditions changed.
The PCB has allowed a team to field a playing XI made up entirely of local players in the event that they are unable to field foreign players. The matches will go ahead if a team has at least 13 players available to play in these unprecedented times of covid. Additionally, the PCB has established a reserve player pool.
