The Islamabad United franchise stands tall as the most successful franchise in the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) history with two title wins from a total of five tournaments. The title wins came in the inaugural edition of the league in 2016 and the third season in 2018.

The franchise suffered its worst season during HBL PSL 5, in which it failed to make its way into the PSL playoffs for the first time since inception while languishing at the bottom of the table at the end of the first round.

The Islamabad United franchise is currently led by Pakistan’s star all-rounder Shadab Khan while South Africa’s Johan Botha was announced as the head coach for PSL 6, replacing Misbahul Haq for the position. The list of past captains of the franchise includes major players such as Pakistan’s former captain Misbahul Haq, Australia’s Shane Watson, South Africa’s JP Duminy, Pakistan’s Rumman Raees and Mohammad Sami.

The franchise has prided itself on continued excellence propelled by a dedicated and experienced support staff that make it one of the most consistent and reliable franchises of the entire league.

Pakistan’s fiery leg-spinner Shadab Khan was announced as the captain of the Islamabad United franchise in January 2020 and led the team in the HBL PSL 5 last year, replacing former captain Mohammad Sami.

The 22-year-old takes a proactive approach in the middle and adds fire to the morale of the team. His leadership abilities at such a young age garnered almost universal praise among analysts and spectators alike during the PSL 5.
