We are just four days away from the Pakistan Super League final and apart from the sale of the PSL Final tickets, what’s also kept the fans’ attention going is to understand which overseas players will feature in that game that will be held in Lahore.
The PCB had already decided that the PSL final will be played in Lahore and made huge security arrangements for everyone concerned, including overseas players. And the PSL has also offered extra salary to overseas to come over to Lahore to participate in that PSL Final in Lahore. This ranges between $10,000 and $50,000 over and above their salary.
So who are the players who have agreed to play in the PSL Final in Lahore?
For now, that is not known but it’s a fluid situation and it will keep changing as and when players decide on it and either opt to play in the final or opt out of it. And we will keep updating you with the list of players who have opted in or out below.
According to the latest rules announced, every franchise will be allowed to nominate a few players they want for their side that plays in the final and in the end each side will be left with 4-5 players from abroad, subject obviously to those players being interested in playing in Lahore.
