Misbah will lead Hong Kong Island (HKI) United immediately after the conclusion of the second edition of the Habib Bank Limited (HBL) Pakistan Super League (PSL) where he will lead the Islamabad United again, said Amna Naqvi, the owner of Leonine Global Sports (LGS).
LGS is the parent company of both HKI United and Islamabad United, the inaugural champions in the Pakistan Super League.
“The HK T20 Blitz is a five team T20 franchise cricket tournament scheduled to hold its second edition”, she said on Tuesday.
The 2016 event was highlighted by the signing of Australia’s World Cup winning captain, Michael Clarke.
The signings of Shahid Afridi, Kumar Sangakkara and Darren Sammy had already been announced by various franchises for the 2017 edition, and HKI United have provided the coup de grace with their signing of Misbah.
