PSL Teams 2018

The HBL PSL players list is placed here. The Pakistan Super League squads for the third edition of the competition were announced after the PSL Draft that was held in a glittering ceremony in Lahore on November 12, 2017.

Teams were allowed to retain nine players going into the PSL Draft but with a sixth team added to the mix. Foreign PSL players will be paid USD 10,000 per match to play in Pakistan next season. After having retained nine players before the PSL Draft, the six teams were expected to pick up to 11 more cricketers for the third edition of the tournament using the Draft.

These players were picked in the Platinum Round, Diamond Round, Gold Round, Silver Round (two), Emerging Players Round (two) and the Supplementary Player Round (four). Lahore Qalandars picked up three players during the Supplementary Round because their purse was over before they could pick the fourth and they ended up with 19 players.

The Karachi Kings decided not to pick up their fourth Supplementary player till after their National Cricketer Hunt was over.

The Islamabad United brought in South African all-rounder JP Duminy as their Platinum pick before selecting Australia and New Zealand cricketer Luke Ronchi, Pakistani all-rounder Fahim Ashraf and England keeper batsman Sam Billings.

Also joining the squad were Zafar Gohar, Sahibzada Farhan and Hussain Talat while the Supplementary players who might not be available for the entire duration of the tournament were Alex Hales, David Willey, Mohammad Hasan, Mohammad Hasnain.

Karachi Kings had earlier announced that Imad Wasim will lead the side and he was joined by South African middle-order batsman Colin Ingram, Aussie fast bowler Mitchell Johnson, England hard-hitting opener Luke Wright and South African all-rounder David Wiese.

The others to feature in the PSL Draft for the Kings were Tabish Khan, Mohammad Irfan Jr, Hasan Mohsin and Colin Munro in the Emerging Category and Eoin Morgan and Saifullah Bangash in the Supplementary Round.

Windies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was the first pick for Peshawar Zalmi and he was joined by Tamim Iqbal, Hammad Azam and Saad Nasim before Taimoor Sultan, Ibtisam Sheikh and Sameen Gul joined him in the line-up.

The Supplementary Round of players saw the Zalmis pick Andre Fletcher, Evin Lewis, Khalid Usman and Muhammad Arif for the side.

With Shane Watson and Carlos Brathwaite joining the Quetta Gladiators in the Platinum and Diamond category, they have a middle-order that consists of two different kinds of all-rounder. The pair will be joined by some other Pakistani cricketers like Rahat Ali, Rameez Raja Jr, Saad Ali, Saud Shakeel and Hassan Khan.

In the Supplementary round of picks, the players who made it to the Gladiators side were Jason Roy, Rashid Khan, Moin Khan (jr.) and Faraz Ahmed.

The Lahore Qalandars were the first team to bring in a Platinum player and they selected Aussie gun batsman, Chris Lynn. He joins his Brisbane Heat teammate and captain Brendon McCullum in the squad along with Mustafizur Rehman, Bilal Asif, Raza Hasan, Sohail Akhtar, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Ghulam Mudassar.

The other Supplementary players who could be available for a few games are Angelo Mathews, Mitchell McClenaghan and Gulraiz Sadaf.

Newly-formed side Multan Sultans brought in Imran Tahir before setting in for middle-order batsman Darren Bravo and Pakistani opener Ahmed Shehzad in their line-up. Mohammad Abbas and Nicholas Pooran were the others picked up before Abdullah Shafique and Saif Badar joined the side from the Emerging category.

Hardus Viljoen, Umar Gul, Umar Siddiq and Ross Whiteley form the Supplementary players.

Player Salaries:

Platinum category: $140,000-230,000

Diamond category: $75,000-80,000

Gold category: $50,000-60,000

Silver category: $22,000-33,000

Emerging category: $10,000-12,000

Overseas players who feature in matches in Pakistan will be paid $10,000 per game they appear.

According to a latest PCB report, the number of players allowed in the squad has been raised to 21 from the original 20 and an extra purse of $25,000 has been allocated to the teams. The extra player will have to be from Pakistan and “may include players unearthed through talent hunt programs or top performers from the National T20 Cup taking place in Rawalpindi currently.”

The PSL squads for the third season have been updated here from after the Draft. The HBL PSL 2018 players list is placed below.

Multan Sultans became the sixth side to join the Pakistan Super League following a bidding procedure. They join the Peshawar Zalmis, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings, Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United as the other teams in the competition.

Last season had seen a main draft held before teams were allowed to transfer their players, and this was followed by a mini-Draft going into the final of the Pakistan Super League that was held in Lahore. This year, as many as eight games are expected to played in Pakistan, including a few in Lahore and Karachi.

PSL Chairman Najam Sethi has already said that the overseas players selected will be expected to play those Pakistan-based games as well.

In a strange piece of news, Shahid Afridi has decided he will no longer ply his trade for the Peshawar side which was led by Darren Sammy; instead he will feature for the Karachi Kings.

Inzamam-ul-Haq has joined the Lahore Qalandars in an advisory role for the third edition of the Pakistan Super League.

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/Karachi set to host the PSL 2018 final.
