Well,Islamabad were one of the two teams who went with their full quota in the Retention Window. They retained their Top batsman in Luke Ronchi and their leading Wicket Taker:Faheem Ashraf. Shahdab Khan was also retained and so was Asif Ali. 2018 has been generous to both of these guys. Other top performers such as Muhammad Sami, Rumman Raees and Hussain Talat were also given a go.
How they Racked up in Draft?
Well, Islamabad went with Samit Patel and Phil Salt as their Gold Round Picks. Ian Bell was drafted in Diamond Category. Like who would miss out on Ian Bell? The gut is a freakin legend. Well, I feel Islamabad were lucky to draft Cameron Delport in the Silver Category. The guy has a few great performances in PSL and would be willing to travel to Pakistan.
Supplementary Picks to Go…….
Luke Ronchi, Faheem Ashraf, Shahdab Khan, Ian Bell, Asif Ali, Muhammad Sami, Rumman Raees, Samit Patel,Phil Salt, Sahibzada Farhan,Zafar Gohar,Waqas Maqsood,Hussain Talat,Cameron Delport,
In the Retention Window, Karachi went with Babar Azam, Colin Munro and Muhammad Amir in the Platinum Category. Imad Wasim, Usman Shinwari and Colin Ingram were retained in the Diamond Category, followed by Ravi Bopara and Muhammad Rizwan in the Gold. Well, others apart, Bopara in Gold category was a steal any team would have loved.
How they Racked up in the Draft?
Well, having had devastated their Platinum and Diamond picks already, Karachi went for Sikandar Raza Butt in Gold Category,followed by Usama Mir, Aaron Summers, Ifthikar Ahmad and Sohail Khan in the Silver Category. Their’s looks the weakest team.
