Order of 2018 PSL Draft

Lahore Qalandars will be allowed the first draft pick. This will be followed by Islamabad United, Karachi Kings, Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans. Trades could be allowed and as a result, the order could be changed.

Team Purse for PSL Draft

Total purse of USD 1.2 million for each team to pick maximum of 20 players in the squad.

Platinum category players will earn anywhere between $140,000 and $200,000 while Diamond category players have a minimum price of $70,000 attached with them. Gold category players will be signed up for a minimum of $50,000.

The Silver category players have a minimum cap of $22,000 whereas the emerging category players could get at least $10,000.

Other PSL 3 Draft News

Karachi Kings won’t be picking in the first round of the Emerging Round and will bring in a player at the end of their talent hunt program.

The retention and trading window for the 2018 Pakistan Super League opened on July 12 and teams were given an option of retaining up to nine players in the team. Teams are also now allowed to sign up new players directly. All new players must enter the players draft to get picked.

So the five teams from the previous two seasons were allowed to retain two players each from the Platinum, Diamond, Gold and Silver category, and 1 from the Emerging category to make it nine retained players at the maximum.

The sixth and the newest side in the competition, the Multan Sultans were allowed to pick nine players from each of the five categories in the pre-draft. What this means is that they will only have the right to those players which the first five teams do not retain in their squads.

While this could make it tougher for the side from Multan, it looks like a fair way for the old teams to retain some of their old flavour in the team – a way by which they can build around their brands.

PSL Player Retention

The owners were allowed up to October 5 to pick up the players they wanted to retain and every team retained and traded in a total of nine players apiece. The rest of the players were released by the franchises into the PSL pool, for the new team, Multan Sultan to pick before going into the PSL 3 Draft.

The sixth side, Multan Sultans picked the following nine players – Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard, Kumar Sangakkara, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Irfan Khan and Kashif Bhatti.
