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 who 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 has already been announced by the franchise on social media and their die-hard fanbase is anxiously waiting to get more updates related to Islamabad united match schedule & Islamabad united squad 2024 list.
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 8 squad.
Shadab Khan, captain of Islamabad is in Australia right now for the Big Bash League so he was not physically present to select the team but we got to say the team they selected is by far the most strongest on paper. They now have a team who can continue to go hard at the opponent even if they lose some early wickets. The complete Islamabad united squad 2024 list is as follows.
Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Colin Munro, Paul Stirling, Alex Hales, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Abrar Ahmed, Sohaib Maqsood, Rumman Raees, Zeeshan Zamir, Hassan Nawaz, Moeen Ali, Mubasir Khan, Tom Curran, Zafar Gohar, Gus Atkinson (replacement) and Tymal Mills (replacement)

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 both Shadab and Abrar play together and dismantle the opposition. Alex hales is expected to join PSL 2024 a bit late but they have plenty of options available as an opener that could easily replace him example Munro, Rahmanullah, Paul Stirling & Moeen Ali can open too.
The combination of left-arm pacers with Rumman & Fazalhaq would be a difficult challenge for the teams to cope with upfront in the power play.

Retained Players List of Islamabad United for 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, Azhar Mahmood as head coach, team owners, and the captain Shadab Khan himself. One thing which 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 with 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)
- Asif Ali (Brand Ambassador)
- Mohammad Wasim Jnr (Diamond)
- Azam Khan (Gold)
- Faheem Ashraf (Gold)
- Hasan Ali (Gold)
- Colin Munro (✈) (Silver)
- Paul Stirling (✈) (Silver)

Platinum= Shadab Khan
Diamond= Asif Ali (Brand Ambassador), Wasim Jr
Gold= Hassan Ali, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf
Silver= Coin Munro (Mentor), Paul Stirling #UnitedWeWin #RedHotSquad🦁 pic.twitter.com/34Gr32E33y
Retaining Shadab Khan in the platinum category was the easiest of decisions for them and it has been confirmed Islamabad united captain 2024 will continue to remain Shadab Khan in the eighth season of PSL. Asif Ali has also been a permanent key member of the franchise since its inception and he is also named a brand ambassador which means Asif will be taking home a huge cheque worth around $170,000 (same price as the platinum player).
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.
Islamabad United PSL Draft 2024 Pick Order
With over 400 foreign players registered for this year’s PSL Draft 2024 event, ISB United will be looking to pick more England, Australian and Irish players which have been their strategy in the drafts. Islamabad united players can also feature some unknown foreign hidden gems from the domestic circuit to further boost their hard-hitting attacking approach. Rehan-ul-Haq in a draft event always looks animated and comes back with a proper plan with statistical analysis to choose players who go with the team plan. The pick order for Islamabad United PSL 9 in Draft 2024 is as follows.
- Platinum: 5th Pick, 3rd Pick, 2nd Pick
- Diamond: 1st Pick, 3rd Pick, 1st Pick
- Gold: 6th Pick, 6th Pick, 3rd Pick
- Silver: 1st Pick, 2nd Pick, 5th Pick, 5th Pick, 2nd Pick
- Emerging: 3rd Pick, 1st Pick
- Supplementary: 6th Pick, 6th Pick
The two available Platinum category picks in the Draft 2024 event will be the most key picks for Isb united squad 2024 to rope in big foreign players available in the draft.
The players like Alex Hales, Aaron Finch, David Miller, Dawid Malan, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Martin Guptill are some of the big foreign players available in the Platinum category Islamabad management will certainly look to get if given a chance.
