Peter Moores is the team's coach, and Babar Azam serves as the team's current captain. After defeating their rival Lahore Qalandars in the championship game on November 17, 2020, they earned their first Pakistan Super League (PSL) championship in PSL V.

Moores, who twice served as England's manager, will join the team for the 2022 season, which is scheduled to begin on January 27. Peter Moores has been named as Karachi Kings' head coach for the next Pakistan Super League (PSL) season.

Karachi Kings won the PSL championship in 2020, while the 2021 season saw them place fourth in the round robin round and lose to Peshawar Zalmi in the knockout round.

Moores stated that being able to participate and become a member of the Karachi Kings family is very thrilling. The quality of the local talent makes it one of the top events in the world, and he can't wait to play in it.

Tom Moores, Moores' son, has tasted the PSL thrilling game and was once a player for the Multan Sultans.

The coach said that he is very excited about this new role. They are going to attempt to play some really exciting, aggressive cricket, which is made even better by the fact that it's being played in Pakistan with all of its traditions and emotions.

Moores has extensive coaching expertise, having coached numerous club and international teams during his career. On two separate instances, he even held the key position for the England squad.

Herschelle Gibbs, a former South African batter who coached the Karachi Kings in the 2021 season, will be replaced by Moores. Moores will have plenty to prove because the Mohammad Rizwan-led team will enter the PSL 2022 as the defending champions. Moores expressed excitement about working with the Karachi team in relation to his appointment. Additionally, he seems eager to collaborate with Pakistan's own artists.

Tom, Peter's son, is notable for having previously played for Multan Sultans, a PSL team. Speaking about the Karachi Kings, their PSL 2021 season was a supernova. The team had a terrible start in the league and dropped three of their first six games. Although they managed to get fourth, they weren't anticipated to perform well in the qualifying round.

However, Mohammad Rizwan's team triumphed despite all the odds. Rizwan, the captain, took the initiative and always delivered. In reality, Babar Azam's 544 runs in the competition won out above his 500 runs in 12 games. Young pacer Shahnawaz Dahani was the bowling unit's major wrecker. He ended the match as the competition's leading wicket-taker, taking 20 wickets in just 11 innings. The team hopes to repeat their valiant actions in the following season as well.
