Pakistan Super League is only a month away and all the teams are busy preparing. The players are bought and the squads are ready for the upcoming season. The backroom staff of most of the teams are getting a revamp. There are some new teams which are trying to hire the best men to do the job.

The behind the curtain jobs are being sorted out now as teams like Islamabad United, Lahore Qalanders and also Multan Sultans are trying to get their hands on some quality analysts. The teams are coached by Waqar Younis, Aaqib Javed, and Wasim Akram respectively. The heavyweights of the Pakistan cricket are looking for a video analyst.

PSL teams looking for help from India

Wasim Akram, who has worked for many years in India with Kolkata Knight Riders is also looking for an Indian video analyst. Even the likes of Islamabad United and Lahore Qalanders are in search of the same. Last year Pakistan Super League had all the local video analysts. This time around they are going a step further.

Lahore Qalanders already have the best Pakistani video analyst. Talha Hashmi, the video analyst, has been asked to wait in the wings. His contract is on hold as the team is trying to get an Indian on the board. Multan Sultans are trying to get hold of the KKR video analyst as they are waiting for a response from the man.

A source close to Lahore Qalanders told NDTV sports about the same. “But Talha has been told to wait and his contract for the third PSL is now on hold by the Lahore franchise,” said the source. The rumours are that only these three franchises are after Indian analysts. All the three franchisees are also coached and mentored by the former pace trio of Pakistan. Wasim, Waqar, and Aaqib will be looking to outdo each other on the field.
