On Saturday, Karachi Kings suffered their third consecutive loss in the HBL PSL 8.
Ramiz Raja, a former Pakistan cricketer, says that Karachi Kings need to replace their management and mentors in order to improve their fortunes in the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Wasim Akram has been the president of the Karachi Kings since PSL 4, and he is frequently seen in the dugout with the players during PSL matches. He also serves as the franchise’s bowling mentor.
Karachi Kings, who finished last season at the bottom of the points table, suffered their third consecutive loss in HBL PSL 8 after a six-run setback to Quetta Gladiators on Saturday.
“Karachi Kings must alter their think tank and mentors because they have been with the same management for several years and must break up at some point. If they do not finish in the top three this season, they must determine whether to make changes “Raja stated on a local television station.
“If you don’t make adjustments, you end up with mediocrity, which harms the Pakistan Super League,” he continued.
In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan last month, Akram criticised Raja.
“He [Ramiz] came for six days and is now back at his original location. “I think it’s a bad idea for cricketers to be PCB chairman,” Wasim stated in response to Raja’s dismissal.
Raja further stated that if the Karachi Kings maintain their losing run, fans will eventually lose patience.
“If you continue to lose at home, the crowd will only make a half-hearted effort to come to the stadium. A spectator has to go through so many checks to get into the stadium, and the tickets are already expensive, so if their team can’t even chase down a 160-run target, it’s a pretty soul-destroying experience for a fan “Raja came to a conclusion.
On Sunday, the Kings will face their archrivals, the Lahore Qalandars, at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi.
