England T20 star players Alex Hales and Chris Jordan are set to bolster the playoff stage of PSL 2019.
Hales will turn up for Islamabad United in their Eliminator clash with Karachi Kings in Karachi on Thursday as his international assignment in the Caribbean with England is over.
Hales was par of the limited overs tour of West Indies and had a top score of 82 in the Guyana ODI. Hales’ decision to travel to Karachi is significant as he had earlier refused to tour Bangladesh over security concerns in 2016.
However, Hales has had a change of heart, first signing up for Rangpur Riders in the Bangladesh Premier League and now travelling to Pakistan to take part in the PSL.
Jordan, meanwhile, brings great form to the Zalmi side, having registered remarkable figures of 4-6 in the second T20 against the West Indies in Basseterre, dismissing the hosts for just 45. Jordan was part of the Zalmi side during the PSL in UAE before joining the England team in the Caribbean late last month.

Top three opening batsmen in terms of strike-rate in T20s in the last two years (min. 1000 runs). Two of them likely to open for Islamabad United in the playoffs. Pair to watch! #KhelDeewanoKa
