The competition will allow the players to find form as a majority of them have been suffering from injuries. The CPL is more crucial for Imad Wasim, Rumman Raees, Sohail Tanvir, Muhammad Irfan and Wahab Riaz, since they had been a part of the team but were left out either due to injuries or poor performances.
