Karachi Kings announces Mohammad Amir as brand ambassador for PSL 8

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises have revealed their brand ambassadors and mentors for the eighth edition of the tournament next year.

The brand ambassadors include Lahore Qalandars’ Haris Rauf, Karachi Kings’ Mohammad Amir, Quetta Gladiators’ Sarfaraz Ahmed, Islamabad United’s Asif Ali, and Shahnawaz Dahani from Multan Sultans.

Karachi Kings’ Shoaib Malik, Islamabad United’s Colin Munro, and Quetta Gladiators’ Umar Akmal will serve as player mentors for their respective franchises. The players’ draft for PSL season 8 will take place in Karachi on December 15.

The PCB has already revealed the draft order, with the defending champion Lahore Qalandars making the first pick.

The second and third picks will go to the Quetta Gladiators and the Multan Sultans, respectively. The fourth and fifth picks will be made by Karachi Kings and Islamabad United, respectively. Meanwhile, Peshawar Zalmi will make the sixth pick.

PSL 8 is scheduled from February 9 to March 19 in Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, and Lahore. Pakistan’s all-format captain and the tournament’s most successful batter recently left Karachi Kings.

“It is an honour for me to lead the franchise, and I’m excited for the new challenge,” said Azam. “Peshawar Zalmi is one of the best teams in the PSL and has done well consistently over the past few years.”

Azam had played for the Kings since 2017 after leaving Islamabad United.
