Islamabad United Squad 2024 & Match Schedule

If we say Islamabad United has set the modern T20 cricket benchmarks in PSL, we won’t be wrong. Their approach from the 1st season has always been to go hard right from ball one and this is the reason they are the best team that gets the most scores in the powerplay. The owner of Islamabad United 2024 is Leonine Global Investments through its sports entity Leonine Global Sports, owned by Amna Naqvi and Ali Naqvi. In PSL 2024, ISB United will enjoy the home crowd advantage at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium which is expected to be a house full in all the games like in earlier seasons of the Pakistan Super League. The team retention in Islamabad United Squad 2024 was announced by the franchise on social media last week and now the draft event has also been completed and one can say they have picked a pretty formidable lineup yet again at least on paper. Get to know in detail about Islamabad United match schedule & Islamabad United squad 2024 list below.

PSL 9 Islamabad United Complete Squad

Team Islamabad has not changed its philosophy by going hard right from ball one and does not care about the match result. Manager Rehan-ul-Haq along with the team owner and other coaching staff were present at the psl draft event to select the best possible Islamabad United PSL 9 squad. 

The PSL 9 Islamabad United complete squad for 2024 is comprised of a balanced mix of experienced and young players. The team boasts a strong lineup of key batters, including the likes of Shadab Khan, Alex Hales, and Colin Munro, who bring a wealth of experience and firepower to the batting department. Additionally, the inclusion of Azam Khan provides further depth to the batting lineup, offering power-hitting capabilities in the middle order.

In terms of key bowlers, Islamabad United has a formidable pace attack with the likes of Naseem Shah, Faheem Ashraf, and Tom Curran, who bring variety and skill to the team’s bowling arsenal. This pace trio is complemented by the spin resources of Imad Wasim and Qasim Akram, adding further depth and guile to the team’s bowling options.

Furthermore, the presence of all-rounders such as Faheem Ashraf and Imad Wasim provides Islamabad United with versatile options, both with bat and ball. These all-rounders not only contribute to the team’s balance but also provide crucial depth to the squad, allowing for tactical flexibility in various match situations.

While the squad showcases strength in its key batters, bowlers, spin resources, pace bowlers, and all-rounders, it also reflects a blend of youth and experience, creating a well-rounded team capable of competing at the highest level in the upcoming PSL 9 tournament.

Complete Squad:

Shadab Khan, Naseem Shah, Imad Wasim, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Alex Hales and Colin Munro, Rumman Raees, Matthew Forde, Salman Ali Agha, Qasim Akram, Shahab Khan, Hunain Shah, Ubaid Shah, Shamyl Hussain, Tom Curran (reserved), Obed McCoy, Haider Ali

It would be a great headache to select the best eleven out of the above-selected players because nearly everyone is a player who can win the game on his own. Fans are very excited to see how Islamabad United plans to utilize the Shah brothers as they have picked all three of them and so far in the U19 tournaments we have seen Ubaid and Hunain are tricky bowlers to deal with in the powerplay.

Islamabad United Retentions PSL 2024

The team combination of Isb United Squad 2024 has always been decided through mutual analysis by their general manager Rehan Ul Haq, their strategy manager Hassan Cheema, Mike Hesson as head coach, team owners, and the captain Shadab Khan himself. One thing that has been common in their player retention along with new picks in the draft is they always look for the X-factor players who can play at any position along who can go hard at the opponent team right from the word go. Islamabad United already have two PSL trophies in their name and they will certainly look to become the 1st ever team to WIN three titles of the Pakistan Super League. The retained Isb United Squad 2024 list is as follows.

  • Shadab Khan (Platinum)
  • Naseem Shah (Platinum)
  • Imad Wasim (Mentor and Diamond)
  • Azam Khan (Diamond)
  • Faheem Ashraf (Gold & Brand Ambassador)
  • Alex Hales (✈) (Gold)
  • Colin Munro (✈) (Gold)
  • Rumman Raees (Silver)

Naseem Shah is brought into the ISU Squad 2024 through a trade deal with Quetta who will solve many of their new ball powerplay issues.

All the eighth retentions in the Islamabad United Squad 2024 list are definite match winners who will be in their first playing eleven which already shows they are ahead in the game in comparison to other franchises on paper and they will certainly look to build even more back up and depth in batting and bowling. Team Islamabad United 2024 will most likely go with the same strategy by picking more all-rounders rather than specialists which have worked for them in the past.
