Pakistan Super League PSL 2017

PSL 2 finalized for February 2017

Pakistan Super League PSL 2016

The second edition of the Pakistan Super League T20 is scheduled to begin in Feb 2017 in UAE. The retention window for the second edition of the Pakistan Super League has now been opened by the PCB. It will begin from June 20 and go all the way up to the end of August this year. This essentially translates into the teams now being allowed to let go of players they want to from the first season and retain the others in their line-up.

Players who aren’t retained can go back into the PSL Draft which will be held before the start of the next season and other teams can then pick them up from there. Even the same team can pick that same player if they think they have erred in letting go of him.

The first ever editon of the Pakistan Super League T20 ended on February 23 with Islamabad United winning the title after defeating Quetta Gladiators in the final of the tournament.

The foundation for Islamabad’s victory in the final was laid by Andre Russell’s three-wicket haul before Dwayne Smith and Brad Haddin smashed fifties to guide the side towards their chase of 175 against Quetta Gladiators.

Ahmed Shehzad and Kumar Sangakkara had hit fifties of their own in the final for the Gladiators, and at one stage would have harboured thoughts for a win after piling up 174 in a pressure final.

Earlier, the Quetta Gladiators made the final by winning their only playoff match against Peshawar Zalmi, edging Peshawar out by a run. This was followed by Islamabad overcoming the Karachi Kings by nine wickets, a chase of 115 that lasted just 14.2 overs for them.

Islambad were then slotted to take on the Zalmis in which they crushed their opponents yet again. Sharjeel Khan became the first centurion in the PSL to steer his side to 176 for three in the 20 overs before the United saw Russell and Imran Khalid share seven wickets to bowl Peshawar out for 126.

Among the five sides, Lahore Qalandars faced the bitter end of the disappointment as they failed to qualify for the final four. Despite having a strong squad with names like Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, they could win just two matches out of the possible eight.

The HBL PSL has put the cricket action from the country back on the map. Boasting of international players and a league like format, the tournament took place in three stages, which was played in Dubai and Sharjah. The teams representing five major cities – Peshawar, Quetta, Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore took part in the competition.

The dates for the second edition of the tournament will be out soon and the fans will hope the tournament gets played in Pakistan this time. Even if it’s not possible, the tournament has made an excellent start and there will be a lot of fans waiting with bated breath for the second season.

    Today I saw Peshawar Zalmi song on Hum TV. They added Wahab and Ahmed Shahzad clip which is not delivering good message. So please reconsider it.
