In group stage, Islamabad United team played eight Matches and won four out of it and qualified for the Eliminator. Islamabad united won first eliminator by crushing Karachi kings by 9 wickets, who finished at 4th place. In that match the key player was Mohammad Sami who took 5 wickets for just 8 runs in his 4 over spell.

That’s how the key players change the fortune of the teams. Later on the scintillating century of Sharjeel Khan against the Peshawar Zalmi put the crowed on silent mode as he cruised to 117 of just 62 balls making the match a pretty one sided affair.  United, spinner Imran Khalid took four wickets for 20 runs and Andre Russell three for 37. The win took United through to the final against Quetta Gladiators.

In the final encounter of PSL 2016 Islamabad United won by Islamabad by six wickets. United opted to bowl first after winning the toss and the Gladiators scored 174–7 in their 20 overs. Andre Russell, who finished the tournament as the leading wicket-taker, took three for 37. In reply United started well with Dwayne Smith scoring 73 runs and Brad Haddin an unbeaten 61, allowing United to score 174 for four with eight balls remaining and win the title. From here this can be clearly seen that the players are the true asset of a team. They are the key elements in the success of a team.

In 2017 series its function become nevertheless identical as group win four fits out of 8 in Group stage and qualified for the subsequent spherical. The Eliminator was of no change from the eliminator of PSL 2016 as Islamabad United once again met Karachi Kings however this time Karachi Kings proved to be victorious and United had to end their campaign here. The major Jerk to the United were the spot fixing ban on the key players i.e. Irfan Khan, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif which collapsed the morale of the team and the team couldn’t sustain.

But all this proved that the key players are the dominating factors in the fortune of a team those either lead the team to the victory or their absence can crush the team.
