PSL 9 Trades That Went Well:

There have been a lot of rumours over the past few weeks that some international stars were being moved from one brand to another. One of those rumours has now been proven.

Imad Wasim, who had been leader of Karachi Kings for a long time, left the team to play for Islamabad United, which is in the same city. Hassan Ali, who went from Peshawar Zalmi to Islamabad a few years ago, now plays for Karachi Kings.

The teams from Multan and Quetta have agreed to do something big again. In this huge deal, Multan sent Riliee to Iftikhar. Both teams looked at how their teams would work together, and the trade makes great sense.

Franchises talked to each other for weeks before finally coming to an agreement. This happened after Naseem Shah told his franchise that he wanted to move. In exchange for Naseem Shah’s freedom, Islamabad freed Abrar Ahmed and Mohammad Wasim Jnr. Because Naseem is hurt, he might not be able to play in the PSL 2024 at all.
