Peshawar Zalmi PSL 2019 Squad
Peshawar Zalmi 2019 roster is placed here. The runner-up from the previous season will continue to be led by Darren Sammy after he was retained for the forthcoming PSL edition but will he be able to inspire the side to glory the way he has in the past?
Going into the PSL Draft, the Zalmis had retained two platinum players in the form of Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali, two of the best Pakistan pacers in their own right. Sammy, who is expected to lead them will be a part of the Diamond category along with former Pakistan keeper Kamran Akmal.
In the Gold Category, the Zalmis have held on to Liam Dawson while Umaid Asif and Khalid Usman, also retained, belong to the Silver Category. Interestingly, the Zalmis have also retained an emerging player from the previous season in the form of Sameen Gul.
For the 2019 season of the PSL, the Zalmis released Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez from the squad. Andre Fletcher was brought into the squad in the replacement draft, in place of Waqar Salamkheil.

Key Players on Peshawar Zalmi Team 2019
Darren Sammy: Fans often call Darren Sammy as a local and that has simply to do with the pride that Sammy has shown in representing the team in the PSL, even exhorting others to come to Pakistan to play the game. Of course, his captaincy, batting and bowling alone should be the reasons why he is a player to watch.
Hasan Ali: Fast bowler Hasan Ali’s form has fallen away since the start of the 2018 Asia Cup and some say it could be to do with his shoulder injury. Whatever is the case, Hasan Ali’s presence will remain the key to Pakistan’s chances in the World Cup and he would love to get to that stage with a strong PSL showing.
Kamran Akmal: Wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal might have fallen out of favour with the national selectors but talk of PSL and Kamran is easily one of the best batsmen around. His batting at the top of the order will keep Peshawar Zalmi in the game.
Peshawar Zalmi’s performance in the Pakistan Super League has been a terrific one. They went to claim their maiden PSL trophy in 2017 after having made the playoffs in the first season and this was followed by another brilliant 2018 edition in which they lost to the Islamabad United in the final.
As a result, after the Islamabad side, the Zalmis are the second-best performing team in the PSL. PSL 4 Peshawar Zalmi team squad is placed above.
