Before the PSL Draft, teams were allowed to retain up to 10 players divided into the various available categories, Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver and Emerging. Based on the number of players allowed to retain and those actually retained, teams were allowed to pick the rest of them using the Draft that was held in Islamabad.
Also, before the Draft, teams were allowed trades between themselves as a part of a retention process. The Lahore Qalandars released Brendon McCullum from their squad and brought in Hassan Khan and Rahat Ali in place of Sunil Narine and Umar Akmal who went to the Quetta Gladiators. In another trade, Sohail Tanvir has left Multan Sultans and joined Quetta Gladiators for this season of the PSL. Also interesting to note was that Mohammad Hafeez has been released from the Peshawar Zalmi squad and he will be a part of the Draft that will be held later this month.
PSL Draft Highlights
During the Draft, the Lahore Qalandars had the first chance to pick a player in the Platinum player and with guys like AB de Villiers and Steven Smith available to feature in the tournament, it was never going to be difficult. The Qalandars went for de Villiers while Multan Sultans, chose Smith.
However, Smith was later ruled out of the competition because of an elbow injury that needed him to return to Australia for surgery.
Shahid Afridi was also picked up by Multan Sultans, while Peshawar Zalmi went for Kieron Pollard and Karachi Kings chose Colin Munro. Also Dwayne Bravo went to Quetta Gladiators during the Platinum picks.
The Diamond category of players saw players like Ian Bell, Mohammad Nawaz, Carlos Brathwaite and Joe Denly get a look in while Samit Patel, Phil Salt, Sikandar Raza, Dawid Malan, Umar Amin, Sandeep Lamichanne, Qais Ahmed and Nicholas Pooran all made it to respective sides from the Silver category.
The country has a strong cricketing heritage and keeps dishing out prominent players on the scene. The country’s capacity at hurling fast bowlers on the cricketing arena is almost incredible. The administrators are tweaking last year’s faults to ensure that everything is hunky dory with Karachi set to host the PSL 2019 final. The HBL PSL 2019 players list is placed above.
