In a pre-match press conference in Islamabad, Shadab Khan, the captain of Islamabad United, expressed his hope for a better performance from his team in their upcoming match against Karachi Kings. This comes after United’s disappointing score of 90 in their last game against Lahore Qalandars.
Shadab aims to score the fastest century of this season and wants his team to continue their aggressive batting style without fear of failure. He acknowledges that such collapses can happen when players are urged to play fearlessly, but emphasizes the importance of supporting them and being patient.
Despite Kings’ five losses in the season so far, Shadab is not underestimating them and believes they are still a good franchise that can make a comeback. He states that they will need to play their best cricket if they want to beat them, even though it may be comparatively easier to defeat a struggling or losing team
