Colin Munro in awe of Shadab Khan

The Islamabad United had announced the young and dynamic all-rounder Shadab Khan as their new captain for the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020.

The Islamabad United had announced the young and dynamic all-rounder Shadab Khan as their new captain for the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020. The decision came in as a surprise for many as the all-rounder has just entered his early 20s and there were many experienced and seasoned campaigners in the squad that could have been chosen for the role of leadership.

However, the young all-rounder has performed extremely well individually in the ongoing domestic T20 competition of Pakistan. The two-time champion team has not achieved the exact results it would have loved to achieve but, the performance of Shadab Khan as a batsman has installed a breath of fresh air in the United’s camp.

The red hot army led by Shadab also lost a couple of matches because of persistent rain and both of their encounters against Peshawar Zalmi were affected by rain. The Zalmis managed to win the last clash via D/L method after Islamabad had put a great score of 195.

Many experienced foreign stars are also playing under the captaincy of Shadab and the aggressive Kiwi batsman Colin Munro also seems quite impressed with the captain of his side.

In a public poll on Twitter, the Islamabad United franchise had asked the fans about the roles Shadab Khan has been playing for his team. The franchise also mentioned the roles as well in their tweet that included Shadab Khan the captain, bowler, fielder and batsman as well.

However, the belligerent striker of the ball said that he likes the captain Shadab Khan more as a person. Munro tweeted “What about Shadab the person, absolute legend.”

Islamabad United are currently situated at no.3 in the points table with 7 points to their name however, they need at least two victories in their next couple of matches to confirm a place in the final four.
