PSL Teams 2017

PSL Teams 2017The HBL PSL players list is placed here. The ball was set rolling for the second season of the Pakistan Super League with the PSL Draft that was held on October 19. Many hundred players were a part of the Draft and the five teams brought in players to their squads, apart from retaining some of the players from the previous season. The HBL PSL 2017 players list is placed below.

Multan Sultans will be 6th team in the tournament

Latest update for PSL 2017 Final: As far as the overseas players are concerned, there will be no Draft held, only nominations. This will be finalised around the time the finalists are decided for the competition. However, players who have already played for other teams in this edition of the PSL won’t be allowed to feature for the finalists.

The latest update moving into the third season of the Pakistan Super League is that Shahid Afridi has decided to sign up for the Karachi Kings. He played for the Peshawar Zalmis in the first two seasons but opted out of the franchise for the third season.

There was a PSL Replacement Draft held on January 23 that allowed teams to bring in new players in place of those who decided not to play in the tournament despite being selected in the first draft because of fitness issues, rest and national commitments.

Team changes were made to the Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars while Karachi Kings and Islamabad United decided not to change things around because of the availability of all their cricketers.

The Qalandars have let go of Dwayne Bravo, Shaun Tait and Anton Devcich, all of whom are injured, while Jason Roy, Chris Green and James Franklin have been brought into the team.

Also missing out of action will be Alex Hales, Shakib al Hasan and Mohammad Shahzad which means the Peshawar Zalmi have brought in Marlon Samuels, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Samit Patel and Andre Fletcher to their team.

Lastly the Quetta Gladiators have made four changes to their squad with Carlos Brathwaite, Rovman Powell, David Willey and Mohammad Nabi opting out because of different reasons. Nathan McCullum, Thisara Perera, Rilee Rossouw and Mahmudullah Riad have all been given a go in the squad.

No changes were made to the Islamabad United and Karachi Kings squads.

The defending champions Islamabad United will continue to be led by Misbah ul Haq, while Kumar Sangakkara takes over the reins of Karachi Kings after having given up on the role towards the end of the opening season.

Peshawar Zalmis skipper from the previous season Shahid Afridi has decided to give up on that role and handed the role over to Darren Sammy, the former West Indian captain. On the other hand, Quetta Gladiators will need to look at their Pakistan T20I captain Sarfaraz Ahmed to make it the distance.

Interestingly, the Lahore Qalandars management has now taken a decision to remove Azhar Ali from the captaincy and install Brendon McCullum as their skipper for the second season of PSL.

In that first season, many international T20 players like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Shane Watson, Grant Eliott and Shakib Al Hasan came together to feature in the Pakistan Super League.

However, the local talent too made their contribution brilliantly, as Umar Akmal and Sharjeel Khan were two of the leading run-scorers, while Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Sami were in the group of leading wicket takers.

It was Islamabad United who won the tournament, despite finishing at the third place in the league table. Other teams like Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars had a disappointing debut as they won just two in the eight matches they played.

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 Lahore set to host the PSL 2017 final.
