Looking at the last year’s below-par performance due to a weak bowling attack, United pick the most thrilling bowler Hasan Ali, who will increase the bowling attack with Faheem Ashraf and Reece Topley.

The spin bowling department of Islamabad United needs some consideration because they have only two front line spinners Ahmed Safi Abdullah and Zafar Gohar. Here Iftikhar Ahmed part-time off-spinner can play the role of balancing.

Despite Losing Luke Ronchi, Samit Patel and Andre Russell, the batting unit will be the main strength of Islamabad United. All-Rounder Lewis Gregory, Shadab Khan, and Batsman Phil Salt will provide the main power to the batting unit of the team.
