Islamabad United Welcomes New International Addition

Renowned New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill has joined the Islamabad United squad and has arrived in Lahore ahead of their upcoming match against Peshawar Zalmi on Monday.

The 37-year-old opening batsman, known for his prolific performances in various T20 leagues worldwide following his retirement from international cricket in 2022, brings a wealth of experience to the team. Guptill has previously represented Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League.

Guptill was brought in as a replacement for the United Arab Emirates batsman Muhammad Waseem, who was unable to join the squad due to prior commitments.

Islamabad United had earlier signed Muhammad Waseem for his impressive batting record in the ILT20, and the team’s management made the decision to acquire him midway through the season.
