Islamabad United (IU) are among the most successful franchises in the history of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). They have always had one of the finest domestic and international talents in their ranks. IU will hope to do better than the previous season since they were knocked out in Eliminator 1 in 2023.

IU won six matches of 10 and ended in the third position last season. They will be led by experienced Shadab Khan again. However, the United lost to Peshawar Zalmi by 12 runs in the knockout phase and crashed out of the tournament.

Islamabad United have made some quality signings and will certainly compete hard against all teams. Azhar Mahmood will coach the unit again. There is experience and youth nicely mixed, and IU will pose a formidable challenge to all other teams.

  • While there is depth in the batting unit, IU might struggle to score quickly against quality spin in death overs.

  • Naseem Shah is returning from the injury and hasn’t played competitive cricket since September last year. It will be interesting to see how quickly he acclimatises to the conditions.

PSL 2024 Season Verdict for Islamabad United

Islamabad United have a mixed squad and will certainly fight hard. There are some quality names, who can be dangerous on their day. However, recent form and lack of match practice might be worrying IU.

A lot will depend on how veterans in each department turn up during the tournament. If they do the heavy lifting, the United will be arduous to beat. It’s hard to predict how will they perform this season.

However, Islamabad United will fancy their chances to at least reach the semifinal. The experience of their players will be handy in this tournament. Their squad doesn’t inspire confidence to win the title, but T20 is a funny format.
