The Karachi Kings coach Mickey Arthur wants the franchise’s team director Wasim Akram to help fix the wrist position of left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir. Arthur is also Pakistan’s head coach and certainly has a lot of plans to make ahead of the ICC World Cup scheduled in England and Wales in May-July next year.
The 50-year-old Arthur said he is looking forward to working with the legendary former fast bowler during the fourth edition of the tournament due to be held in February-March next year. The Kings will be led by Imad Wasim and have the likes of Colin Munro, Colin Ingram, Babar Azam and others in their ranks. Another former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was also a member of the franchise but recently parted ways.
“I want Wasim [Akram] to help us with the wrist position of Mohammad Amir,” said Arthur while talking to ARY News. “If he can do that, it will be a mouthwatering prospect.”
Amir has been a spearhead for Pakistan for some time but went wicket-less in a number of international games of late, adding concern to their team management ahead of the World Cup.
Arthur praises Imad Wasim’s captaincy
The South African also spoke about continuing with Imad Wasim as the captain of Karachi Kings and praised him for the way he led the side in the previous edition of the league.
“Continuity of captaincy is so important, I think Imad Wasim is a good captain, he is a very good cricket and we know that, so I am looking forward to seeing him lead Karachi Kings to some success in the next season,” he added. Arthur also effusive about the young Aussie pacer Aaron Summers who the Karachi Kings picked in the Gold category.
“He bowls at 150 km/h, he is incredibly athletic, very good in the field and hits a long ball. He is not a surprise choice, because we had done our homework on him, but it is a pick that we hope will be the pick of the PSL,” Arthur concluded.
