ISLAMABAD: Karachi Kings President and former captain Pakistan cricket team Wasim Akram Thursday said the head coach of the team Mickey Arthur believed in fighting till the last ball.

“We hope Karachi Kings will perform better in this session and would battle till the last ball," he said while talking to a private news channel.

Wasim Akram said Karachi Kings did not need big names like AB de Villiers or Kieron Pollard, but it had picked up useful players. Moreover, he stressed upon the players to show their best during the fielding.

“If you have a strong fielding unit, you will win match in the long run, the environment is nice and relaxed, we are not under any sort of pressure," he said.

The fast bowling great Wasim Akram asked bowlers to be in right mindset including Mohammad Amir, who, he said, seemed to have lost his magic a bit.

He said, “Amir is swinging ball in nets, I have discussed it with bowlers and I believe, they have a defensive mindset, they do not take chances in the first six overs to swing the ball."
