Karachi Kings name new captain after Imad Wasim’s injury

DUBAI – England’s Eoin Morgan has replaced Imad Wasim as the new skipper of Karachi Kings.

Imad had to be stretchered off after he tumbled backwards to grab a catch of Sohail Khan, hitting his head on the ground as he completed the brilliant catch.

The all-rounder was taken to medical facility, where he was kept under observation for 24 hours. He was declared stable soon after, but was said to have suffered from a mild concussion.

However, he was discharged from the hospital yesterday (Tuesday), but was advised to take couple of days rest.

The PSL franchise announced the decision on Twitter:

Karachi Kings will now face defending champions Peshawar Zalmi tomorrow (Thursday).
