The man from Bangladesh is regarded as one of the finest all-rounders in the modern era. He played a vital role in his team’s success in 2015, against Asian giants Pakistan and India.

Karachi Kings, a team that promises a lot indeed. Probably the only team that puts its maximum effort on fitness was also applauded for smart captures during the PSL draft.

The best T20 all-rounder in terms of ranking, Shakib Al Hasan is indeed a priced asset. The 28 year old is a sharp thinker, who is likely to flourish under the cerebral captaincy of Shoaib Malik.

The middle order of Karachi Kings does bank on Shakib big time. He knows the art of shifting gears at the right time. He is someone who can block and calmly rotate strike when needed. Also, his ability to clear the fence is also evident to the world. With 5 international T20 fifties, this tiger is ready to roar in UAE for Karachi Kings.


The list of Shakib’s lethal attributes continues as he is also a match winner with the ball in his hand. A nightmare to say the least for right handed batsmen. The combination of spin and ruthless arm balls make him a force to reckon with in this star studded tournament.

An economy of under 7 and 50 wickets at an average of just over 20, Shakib is surely someone to look out for. His experience will play a crucial role on the field, a right man to advice Shoaib Malik under circumstances. His experience of captaincy at international level could come handy here.

With Shakib in the arsenal, Kings carry with themselves a strong middle order and at the same time, quality bowling options.

To all the expectations from Karachiites, Shakib and Co are ready to rock the stage.
