    Players draft kicks off in Dubai today

    LAHORE: Drafts for the second season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL2) will be held in Dubai Sports City, Dubai on Wednesday (today). After a successful first edition of the PSL, the drafts process marks the beginning of PSL2. The Lahore Qalandars will be the first team to choose players in the drafts, followed by the Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United. The Lahore Qalandars are all set to pick ex-New Zealand Captain Brendan McCullum in the first pick, as they have already announced him as captain of the team in place of Azhar Ali. PSL chairman Najam Sethi said Tuesday that the drafts would be even more star-studded this year as compared to the previous year. “Although most team retained players from the first season of the PSL, the retention policy would be reviewed next year in order to give new players chance to be part of the drafts,” he said.

    Sethi said that although the opening ceremony would be in Dubai next year, the organisation would try to hold the closing ceremony and final in Lahore. The PSL chairman announced that the PSL and Pakistan Cricket Board would separate companies starting next month, and that a majority of company directors would be hired from outside the PCB in order to keep the PSL free from the PCB’s politics. Sethi added that he would not be PSL chairman next year.

    PSL 2017 Draft Date & Time – Wednesday 19th October at 4:00 PM PST

    [​IMG]

    The second edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to be a grand affair with seven big name foreign cricketers confirming their participation in the league. Geo Super TV channel will broadcast the PSL draft live at 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM Pakistan time or 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm UAE Time. This will take place at The Dome, Dubai Sports City.

    In what can easily be termed big news, former Sri Lankan captain and talisman player Kumar Sangakkara has been appointed by Karachi Kings as their mentor and captain. Babar Azam and Chris Gayle are the two other players who have been picked up by the Kings for this edition of the competition.

    The Kings have also retained Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Sohail Khan, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Amir, Saifullah Bangash and Shahzeb Hassan from the previous season for the second edition of the PSL.

    Anton Devcich, Wayne Parnell, Jason Roy, Moeen Ali, Steve Finn, James Anderson and Stuart Broad will go into the player draft for the second edition of the PSL after Brendon McCullum and Eoin Morgan were inducted into the drafting process earlier on.

    Pakistan Super League chairman Nizam Sethi has also confirmed that preparations for the second edition of the competition were done and that the final will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The drafting process however, will be conducted in Dubai this October. The player salary cap has been raised be 9%.

    PSL officials have confirmed that the team which finished at the bottom of the standings in the inaugural edition Lahore Qalandars will have the first 20 picks. They will be followed by the team which came in fourth, third and second before defending champions Islamabad United make their own picks.

    England skipper Morgan had confirmed his participation around the same time in which former New Zealand skipper McCullum had given his assent to being involved in PSL 2.

    The Three Lions top three fast bowlers will also be in action with Anderson, Broad and Finn also set to be involved now. Moeen Ali, who has his roots in Pakistan, will be glad to be involved in the action as well.

    New Zealand’s Devcich will join McCullum in the draft alongside Parnell of South Africa. All the overseas stars who will be involved in the PSL 2 draft process have considerable pedigree, especially in T20 cricket and they will definitely help raise the standard of cricket in the tournament.

    Faisal Mirza, the head of player recruitment for the PSL, is also believed to be in talks with former Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson over the latter’s likely participation in PSL 2.

    Also added to the PSL Draft is Salman Butt who returns to cricket after having been suspended for spot-fixing and it remains to be seen if he will get picked by any team during the Draft.

    There are others who were already a part of the previous edition of the Pakistan Super League but have been traded between teams. These players won’t be a part of the draft. You can find all the latest PSL Squads for the 2017 edition here.

    The HBL PSL teams squads are placed here
    . Year 2016 has been a terrific year for cricket fans in Pakistan as the country saw its very own international cricket league introduced to the world. Dubbed as ‘Pakistan Super League’, the tournament was conducted in the month of February in the United Arab Emirates.

    Five franchises representing the major cities of Karachi, Peshawar, Islamabad, Quetta and Lahore came together with a well packed squad to compete for the maiden PSL trophy.

    The tournament boasted of many international T20 players like Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, who represented Lahore Qalandars, along with the likes of Dwayne Smith, Andre Russell, Shane Watson, New Zealand seamer Grant Eliott and the Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.

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

    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.

    Sohail Tanvir and Chris Gayle have both been traded, with Tanvir joining Lahore Qalandars and Gayle getting picked up by Karachi Kings in turn. Also Kumar Sangakkara has joined the Kings and will be involved in a player-coach sort of a role with the side.

    The Karachi Kings have also gone to retain Ravi Boppara, Imad Wasim, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Aamir, Shahzeb Hassan, Sohail Khan and Saifullah Bangash after having played in the previous season for the same team too.

    Nonetheless, they have now got a chance to revamp their squads as the transfer window is now open for the teams till September. In contrast to the auction format which other leagues opt for, the transfer window & the PSL Draft is certainly intriguing as the management of the teams in the PSL get the chance to either buy or trade their players. The fans can even aid the management to make the decisions by tweeting in their suggestions on the official Pakistan Super League page.

    As the fans anxiously look forward to the next season, it will be exciting to see which players find themselves switching sides in the coming weeks. Watch this space for more updates on this front. Just like the first season, A total of 5 teams will participate in the second edition of the tournament fighting for supremacy. Each team will have 16 players to pick its 11 from. This will include the allowed quota of 5 international players. Since there will just be 20 round robin matches and 4 playoffs; players are expected to retain their fitness in the main and justify the money poured on them.

    There will be 24 matches in all and the tournament will be played in double round robin format before the business end or the playoffs. Long hitters and artistic bowlers from around the world will take part in the competition. Efforts are on to plug all holes in the coming months to ensure a smooth tournament.

    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.

    Who gets to pick in what order?[​IMG]

    The format of the PSL Draft is quite simple.

    Teams will be asked to pick their players from the category that is going on at that moment. Each team will be given some time to discuss which player they want to pick and based on that they will select their players.

    The teams will pick the players in this order:

    1st pick: Lahore Qalandars

    2nd pick: Karachi Kings

    3rd pick: Peshawar Zalmi

    4th pick: Quetta Gladiators

    5th pick: Islamabad United

    Hopefully someone picks Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman & Saud Shakeel (not a T20 player, but still performance here earns recognition).

    Oh, and Sadaf Hussain, ofcourse.

    I'm glad they've retained Shazaib though. It's good to have some players who are actually from Karachi, plus he's been in some decent form recently.

    Lahore Qalandars Squad for PSL 2017
    [​IMG]

    Lahore Qalandars 2017

    PSL Lahore team players list is placed here. The inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to get under way early next year in the month of February. The Lahore franchise were bought by the Qatar Oil Group for a princely sum of $2.4 million (USD). They have been able to pool some of the best talents from within Pakistan as well as world cricket as the world gets ready for the first ever Pakistan Super League. Lahore Qalandars have traded Chris Gayle to Karachi Kings for Sohail Tanvir. Sohaib Maqsood was traded with Aamer Yamin of Peshawar Zalmi.

    Former South Africa international coach Paddy Upton has been put in charge by the owners of this franchise. Upton is a reputed coach with plenty of experience at the biggest stage and his presence in the dressing room is likely to have a very positive impact on the players.

    The draft process was conducted across a couple of days in the same manner in which it is done in the United States for the National Football League (NFL).

    Lahore struck big in the player draft especially when it came to foreign players. They were able to recruit Chris Gayle, the most destructive batsman in world cricket for the side while also picking up his international teammates Dwayne Bravo and Kevon Cooper. Both are reliable all-rounders but Bravo has proved over the years that he is one of the best in the business.

    The Qalandars have also recruited up and coming Bangladesh medium pacer Mustafizur Rahman besides Cameron Delport.

    Umar Akmal leads the presence as far as Pakistani internationals are concerned besides Mohammad Rizwan, Yasir Shah, Azhar Ali, Mukhtar Ahmed, and former international Abdur Razzaq. Akmal’s career blossomed early on but his stock has since fallen. He is currently in a battle to hold down his place in the Pakistan lineup and the tournament can decide whether he makes the Pakistan squad for the ICC World T20 next year in India. Quetta PSL team players list is placed below.

    Islamabad United Squad for PSL 2017
    [​IMG]

    Islamabad United 2017

    PSL Islamabad team players list is placed here. The euphoria surrounding the inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is coming to a head with the tournament all set to take off in February next year. Islamabad United are getting ready for the same with some shrewd moves in the player auctions. Fawad Afzal Khan is appointed the brand ambassador for the team. Islamabad United have released Babar Azam who is set to join Karachi Kings.

    The side were bought by the UAE Capital Venture group for $1.5 million US dollars and they have put some very able minds in charge of the side. Former Pakistan bowler Wasim Akram has been named as the director with Australian Dean Jones as the head coach. Shoaib Akhtar is the bowling coach for Islamabad United.

    Islamabad will be led by Pakistan captain Misbal ul Haq in the PSL next year. There are some big Pakistan internationals in the side which include Mohammad Irfan, Ashar Zaidi, Mohammad Sami and Saeed Ajmal among others.

    Although Sami is past his prime and only featured in the Bangladesh Premier League earlier this year, he showed that he still possesses the cunning which helped him establish himself in the national team. Saeed Ajmal is one of the best spinners in world cricket currently if not the best.

    He has been dogged by controversies with respect to his bowling action off late but the man is a real handful with the ball. Irfan on the other hand, has been firing on all cylinders for Pakistan and will look to do the same for Islamabad United.

    They have also made very important international additions. Shane Watson, Andre Russell, Samuel Badree, Brad Haddin, and Sam Billings all offer different dimensions in the side. Watson and Russell are world class operators with both bat and ball. Russell in particular could be extremely destructive and is an asset to have if the team is chasing.

    Badree is a proven spinner while Haddin’s retirement means that he will be available for the complete duration of the tournament. The former Australia wicket-keeper has been doing well in the Big Bash League this year. Billings did well in England’s tour of UAE as they took on Pakistan and the team management took note of the same.

    The team is beautifully balanced on paper and they can go in with a variety of combinations. Also, with the kind of coaches they have, it will be very disappointing if they do not go very far in the tournament. Islamabad PSL team players list is placed below.

    Karachi Kings Squad for PSL 2017
    [​IMG]

    Karachi Kings 2017

    PSL Karachi team players list is placed here. The inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to be played in the United Arab Emirates in February 2016 and the Karachi Kings are set up quite nicely for the tournament. Karachi Kings have traded Sohail Tanvir to Lahore Qalandars for Chris Gayle.

    The side were bought by Salman Iqbal owned Any Media Group for a whopping price of $2.4 million US dollars. They have appointed former South African international coach Mickey Arthur as their manager while former Pakistan leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed will serve as his assistant and bowling coach.

    Key Players on Karachi Kings team: Shoaib Malik, Lendl Simmons, Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Amir

    The Kings have made some wily recruitments in the PSL player draft. The side will be skippered by Pakistan international batsman Shoaib Malik, who has been in good form over the past year or so. His performances in the Caribbean Premier League were quite encouraging and he has gone from strength to strength since then.

    His international teammates Sohail Tanvir, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Bilawal Bhatti, and Iftikhar Ahmed also find a place in the side. Tanvir is a useful bowler to have who can swing the ball both ways while Amir can prove to be a very important recruit. The left-handed fast bowler has made a steady comeback after serving a 5-year ban from the sport and is in the frame to restore his reputation as one of the finest bowlers in Pakistan.

    Karachi have also made some important additions when it comes to foreign players with Shakib Al Hasan their most high-profile player. The former Bangladesh skipper can be said to be a serial winner in T20 league cricket. He has been phenomenal in the Indian Premier League and the Bangladesh Premier League and will be a key player with both bat and ball for the Kings.

    They have also acquired Ravi Bopara, James Vince, Lendl Simmons, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tillakaratne Dilshan for the side. Dilshan and Simmons in particular are very good openers with a lot of experience between them while Bopara and Vince have done well individually in the past few months. Rahim of Bangladesh can be a wily operator as well and will add value to the team. Karachi PSL team players list is placed below.

    • Shoaib Malik (Captain)
    • Babar Azam
    • Imad Wasim

    Peshawar Zalmi Squad for PSL 2017
    [​IMG]

    PSL Peshawar Team 2017

    Peshawar Zalmi players list is placed here. All the attention now turns to the player draft of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is all set for its inaugural edition with the first match slated for February 4, 2016 and the final set to be played on February 24, 2016. Aamer Yamin was traded with Sohaib Maqsood of Lahore Qalandars.

    The Peshawar Zalmi side were acquired by the Haier group for $1.6 million US dollars. They have put in place some very talented individuals in their coaching staff. Mohammad Akram has been named as head coach. Andy Flower will be the batting coach with South African Grant Luden taking the mantle of fielding coach.

    Peshawar will be skippered by Pakistan T20 international captain Shahid Afridi. The man is known to be one of the biggest hitters of the cricket world and commands respect from his peers. However, his inconsistency with the bat could be a bit of an issue. Afridi’s skills as a leg-spinner might prove to be very useful with the tournament set to be played in the UAE.

    Current internationals Wahab Riaz, Kamral Akmal, Mohammad Hafeez and Junaid Khan are also part of the side besides a whole host of youngsters. Riaz has been Pakistan’s best fast bowler for a while now whereas Hafeez’s quality as an opening batsman is never in doubt. Similarly, Akmal can be a very potent batsman in the middle-order and is known to be more than a handful behind the wickets.

    In Darren Sammy, they have recruited one of West Indies’ best cricketers. After all, he led them to their first World T20 title in Sri Lanka and comes with the reputation of being a big hitter lower down the order. Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has also been picked but their best pick has been veteran Australian batsman Brad Hodge.

    Although retired from international cricket, Hodge has shown plenty of appetite to succeed in the T20 leagues across the world. He is currently starring for his side in the Australian Big Bash League and will be crucial for the Peshawar Zalmis in the PSL next year. Peshawar Zalmi team squad is placed below.

    Quetta Gladiators Squad for PSL 2017
    [​IMG]

    Quetta Gladiators 2017

    PSL Quetta team players list is placed here. The Quetta Gladiators are representatives of the Quetta province in the inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League. The Quetta franchise that represents the Balochistan province has been bought by Omar Associates for $1.1 million (USD). There were not a lot of bids placed for this franchise which meant that Omar Associates were able to walk away with 10-year rights to the franchise for less money compared to the four other franchises. Quetta Gladiators have released Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara who is set to join Karachi Kings.

    Key Players on Quetta Gladiators team: Sarfraz Ahmed, Luke Wright, Kevin Pietersen, Umar Gul, Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Nawaz

    Quetta Gladiators have already appointed their coaching staff ahead of the player auctions. Former Pakistan wicket-keeper Moin Khan has been appointed the head coach while Ian Pont and Julien Fountain appointed as the assistant coach and the fielding coach respectively.

    The side have done quite well in the PSL player draft held on December 21 and 22. They will be skippered by Sarfraz Khan, who has broken into the Pakistan national team and has done well in recent matches for the side.

    Ahmed Shehzad, Anwar Ali, Umar Gul, Zulfiqar Babar, Bilal Asif, and Asad Shafiq complete the list of full Pakistan internationals who have been included in the side. Gul has been a fading force off late but his experience with the ball is likely to come in handy. Shehzad and Shafiq are in their primes and are likely to be very important players for this franchise.

    Mohammad Nawaz, Saad Nasim, Akbar ur Rehman, Bismillah Khan, Aizaz Cheema, and Ramiz Raja jr. are the emerging cricketers from Pakistan who have been afforded an opportunity with this team.

    Kumar Sangakkara and Kevin Pietersen are the two big names that have been picked up by this team as well. Both batsmen will be available for the entire duration of the tournament. While Sangakkara is retired, Pietersen was sacked by the ECB last summer and has featured prominently in T20 leagues thereafter. Jason Holder, Luke Wright, Elton Chigumbura, and Mohammad Nabi complete their international players list. Quetta PSL team players list is placed below.
