It has been confirmed that Imad Wasim has been traded by the Karachi Kings for Hassan Ali from Islamabad United.
This news comes amid rumors that several foreign players will be participating in the ninth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Wasim has been taken by United under the Platinum category. Wasim led Karachi to their first PSL title in the fifth edition.
Hassan, who played for Islamabad in the previous season, will be a Diamond player for the Karachi Kings.
In exchange for their second-round silver pick, Karachi Kings received Islamabad United’s first-round pick through this player trade, according to a PSL statement.
Regarding the move on X, Imad stated that his “very special journey” with the Karachi teams was coming to an end and expressed gratitude to the management and fans for their support during his tenure with the team.
“Time for a new chapter. Really excited to be heading to my hometown team Islamabad United. It is an amazing franchise with great people,” said Imad. He added that he will try his best to repay the faith Islamabad United, Shadab Khan and owner Ali Naqvi have shown in him.
“Goodbye Karachi, time to go home to Islamabad,” said Imad.
While Islamabad United wished good luck to Hassan with the new franchise.
