After a rocking inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League, the second season continues in 2017 and the Karachi Kings are set up quite nicely for the tournament. Karachi Kings have traded Sohail Tanvir to Lahore Qalandars and brought in Chris Gayle in what would have been the biggest trade before the PSL Draft.

Karachi Kings had a poor 1st season and they won only 2 matches and finished 2nd last. Shoaib Malik who the captain in the first season, has been replaced by Kumar Sangakkara for the 2nd season.
