Opening bashers, Munro and Hales, represented IU in the previous editions of PSL, while Waseem and Mills will be handed debuts in the Isloo colors.
Islamabad United begin their campaign against reigning champions, Lahore Qalandars, in the Gaddafi Stadium on February 17.
United are known for their fiery starts. They bolstered the likes of Shane Watson, Luke Ronchi, Paul Stirling, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, etc. who used to challenge new heights in every match.
Islamabad United boosted their lower order by signing Imad Wasim and Naseem Shah. Both are utility players who can bowl in the powerplay, and death overs and smash some crucial runs lower down the order.
Lahore Qalandars have a potent bowling attack comprising Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Zaman Khan. The two-time champions will miss the ace leg-spinner, Rashid Khan, in the upcoming season of PSL.
