Talking about the Kings’ performance in the ongoing mega event, Nabi stated that the former champions need an experienced fast bowler to strengthen the bowling unit.

“Karachi Kings are lacking the services of an experienced fast bowler. Our bowling unit is a little weak,” he said.

“The playing-XI will be strengthened with Mohammad Amir’s return. We are also waiting for Chris Jordan,” he added.

Nabi also said that the team will work to get rid of the issues in a few days gap.
