Karachi Kings’ star batsman Colin Ingram said he is looking forward to be a part of Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) matches, which are to be held in Karachi.
Recalling his previous campaign, Ingram said he was disappointed not to take his team to the PSL’s final. Kings encountered Peshawar Zalmi in the playoffs at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium but lost the game on the D/L method.
“It was one of the things I was quite disappointed about, last year we could not get Kings as a team to Karachi,” Colin said, adding that he was ‘massively looking forward’ to play PSL 4 final in Karachi.
Former South African middle-order batsman said, as a team, it is critical for Karachi Kings to lift their game.
“We need to perform well in front of the home the crowd and make them proud,” he added.
Ingram was satisfied with the squad and believed that the strength of the side is their pool of local players.
“We played really well [in PSL 3], the strength of our squad is a solid local base, some superstars have been doing really nice in Pakistan side, it is great to join them again,” he said.
The star batsman, who plays almost all the international leagues around the globe, was stunned with the quality of bowling in the PSL.
“The thing that struck me was the strength of the bowling attacks. Not saying that there are weak attacks out there, but coming to the PSL, every attack has strong seamers, mixed them with a couple of wily spinners and few of the young guys coming through like Shadab.”
He was hopeful that the new faces included to the squad would perform their best to take Kings to the final of the tournament – which is also scheduled to take place at the National Stadium of Karachi on March 17.
