PSL 2024 Islamabad United Signs Martin Guptill Replacement for Mohammad Waseem

Martin Guptill Replacement for Mohammad Waseem Islamabad United has made a significant addition to their squad by signing New Zealand opener Martin Guptill as a replacement for UAE batter Mohammad Waseem. The decision to bring in Guptill came as a result of Waseem’s unavailability due to national team commitments, leading to a clash of schedules between the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and UAE’s Cricket World Cup League 2 campaign.

Waseem, acclaimed as the best home player for the second consecutive season of the ILT20, initially joined Islamabad during the tournament. However, conflicting schedules between the PSL and the Cricket World Cup League 2 campaign in Dubai hindered his participation. This campaign, starting next week and concluding on March 9, coincides with Islamabad United’s final league game on March 10.

With previous stints at Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings in past editions of the tournament, Guptill brings depth to Islamabad United’s batting lineup, boosting their prospects for the rest of the season.
