The Sixth Team Squad for PSL 2019

The Sixth Team PSL Squad

The Sixth Team (formerly known as Multan Sultans) players 2019 list is placed here. The Multan Sultans were added to five existing teams at the end of the second edition of the tournament, but the news that came in before the start of the fourth was their contract had been terminated. Read more here: Multan Sultans’ PSL contract terminated with Schon Properties Broker LLC as the owners were unable to make payments to PCB.

Going into the fourth season of the PSL, the Sixth PSL team managed to retain captain Shoaib Malik as their sole Platinum Category pick for the season. Malik’s batting has matured like old wine and he will be crucial to his team’s chances not just as a batsman but also the skipper of the side.

In the Diamond category of cricketers, Junaid Khan and Mohammad Irfan will join the setup while the Gold Category retention is top-order batsman Shan Masood.

Test match gun bowler Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Irfan Khan and Umar Siddiq are the three Silver Category players while Mohammad Junaid becomes just the second Emerging player to be retained in the side.

Wasim Akram joined the Multan Sultan squad 2018 as the cricket operations director of the side and Tom Moody joins the team as their head coach and they can be expected to remain a part of the set-up even for the new team.

The Schon Group had won the rights to own the sixth team, and the team was based in Multan, joining the Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings and Islamabad United. However, they were unable to keep pace with paying the PSL money for the fourth season too and were suspended from the competition.

One of the reasons why a sixth team was included in the PSL is to cash in on the ever-increasing popularity of the cricket league. Last season, Pakistan cricket fans had taken to the PSL like fish to water, surpassing most expectations as far as TV ratings are concerned. The Sixth Team PSL team players list is placed below.
