For Islamabad United, having the multi-talented Fawad as ambassador was not enough of a feat, the team has managed to bag another achievement. There could not have been better choices than Ali and Fawad, the two most recognizable faces in the country, representing the team. Both stars have managed to make a huge impact as outstanding singers as well as versatile actors, at home and abroad. About being in the Islamabad United team now Ali said
“It’s really surreal, interesting and strange how things come together. As a child, I inspired to be a cricketer, a passion which was later replaced by wanting to become a singer.”
Islamabad United is the only PSL participant team to have got their hands on some of the biggest names in both sports and entertainment in different roles. One of the best cricketers in Pakistan Misbahul Haq is the captain, while Australian player Shane Watson is part of the team and legendary all-rounder Wasim Akram is the team director.
The vision of the team, according to the owners is to provide a truly global experience on sports entertainment; a fan base which is loyal, aware and supportive of the sport and the franchise; an inspirational beacon for up and coming players to strive for excellence in cricket for Pakistan.
