PSL 2017 Team Captains:

The defending champions Islamabad United will continue to lead by Misbah ul Haq. Kumar Sangakkara, taking over the reins of Karachi Kings again as he had left the role during the end of the first season.
Shahid Afridi had decided to give up on the role and it is handed to Darren Sammy, the former West Indian captain. Every one’s eye is on Pakistan T20 International captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, where he is taking the led for Quetta Gladiators.
Surprisingly, the Lahore Qalandars had taken the decision to remove Azhar Ali from the captaincy. Newzealand’s former captain, Brendon McCullum was made as skipper of the team.
The first season had made some remarkable moments. Many stars like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Shane Watson, Shakib al Hasan and Grand Elliot came all together and made the first season of PSL as a great tournament.
Umar Akmal and Sharjeel Khan were the two local heroes who made the contribution with the bat and they were the leading run scorer in the tournament. Mohammad Shami and Wahab Riaz were in the group of leading wicket takers.
It was a great season for Islamabad United who won the tournament and become defending champions though they finished third in the PSL points table. It was the worst season for Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars as they had won only two in the eight matches they played.
