Karachi Kings’ interim head coach Wasim Akram has his eyes set on winning the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five on Tuesday.

Akram, who took charge of the side after Dean Jones passed away, is looking forward to the mouth-watering clash against Lahore Qalandars in the final.

“Boys are pumped, this is going to be the ultimate show down. I’ve never worked with a team so devoted to not only wanting the cup but ultimately playing for the fans. Tonight I hope we win but more than that I pray we go out there and play some incredible cricket,” said Akram on his official Twitter account.

Kings qualified for the final by defeating Multan Sultans in the qualifier after a thrilling clash. A remarkable bowling performance by pacer Mohammad Amir in the super over was instrumental in their victory.
