    @Passionate Pakistani @ASLI-PATHAN

    What do you think of the logo and name so far? The coaching staff is interesting to say the least, I am not a fan of Muhammad Akram being the coach but at least Abdur Rehman is there in some form. Andy Flower and Grant Luden are great selections though, do not know who the physio is.

    Muhammad Akram is the only odd one lol. Should have rather appointed Younis Khan as coach. I heard he will participate only as an official.

    Best name and logo. Hopefully the most decorated team of the league, cant wait for the draft.

    @Prince Pathan you must be happy that Abul rehman is there in some capacity otherwise you were going to support some other team :rofl

    presence of rehman also means, there will be quite a few players from Peshawar Panthers.

    I know you guys want Afridi obviously, but part of me wants Quetta to take him. Having Afridi would increase the profile of the least popular team and will help the league in the long run.

    i think captains are already decided or there is some agreement between all owners about their first pick. I saw Yuvraj Singh and Aamir Khan videos, wishing Peshawar team and Shahid afridi all the best.. which means it is already decided.

    I hope not. It would take away the excitement of the draft. And I hope we are allowed to trade picks too.

    andy flower presence means no chance of getting pietersen @Prince Pathan

    best bet is to get Gayle or someone like Watson.

    The problem with the Quetta franchise is that there are barely any Balochi or Pashtun players from the area apart from Bismillah Khan. Half of the crowd in UAE are Pashtun laborers so it would be a good marketing ploy to select some of the well known Pukhtoon players for Quetta to attract more of the fans. The city in itself is heavily Pashtun populated.

    Whoever has Afridi and Younis Khan will attract most fans per game, in UAE. As it stands Peshawar will have sold out crowds for their games purely due to the larger number of laborers from Peshawar and surrounding areas present there

    I don't care if Afridi plays for Peshawar or not. I will support this team regardless.

    Dwayne Smith and Andre Russel man,Watson is no longer as good as he was, Gayle plays for money and probably does not give too much of a crap. I remember when KKR had him, he flopped nearly every match

    No I would still have supported Peshawar regardless, then Quetta. I am glad that he has been selected on the panel though because he is a great tactician. Well Javed said he was going to focus on the local talent so the intention is to select players from the locality which is good. Give them some exposure with international players.

    He is a brilliant captain, as much as I like Shahid Afridi, Younis Khan is one of the best captains in Pakistan. He is a thinking brain and knows how to utilize every single player around him hence no real fluke he has a WC title under his belt. He is also not afraid to take risks when things are not going his way.

    I am sure you and @ASLI-PATHAN will both agree to his captaincy skills.

    exposure and money as well.. most of them are from poor background, this will help them financially as well.

    Might be a good idea, one of him or Afridi should captain QUETTA or Peshawar. I think Omar Associates are after Sarfaraz so they will probably make him captain and YK will be unsold. I hope Javed Afridi signs YK though if that does happen

    According to some sources, Younis Khan has withdrawn from the PSL. That is disappointing because I am certain he would have been selected by Peshawar.

    No he is decent in domestic T20 as all his past performances in the format for Abbotobad proves. Also like Shoaib Malik he is the most tactically astute captain in the country. He is a legend of the city and the region so I really would not begrudge him of a contract in the PSL. Unlike most fans I do not get mad seeing those who have offered a lot to Pakistan Cricket fail to perform. I would love Misbah Ul Haq too but I think Islamabad will sign him.

    I hope that never happens at the expense of the Two Imrans, Junaid Khan and Taj Wali. Hopefully Pindis Twin city signs him to spare us the misery. He is a bits and pieces cricketer and would rather take Faisal Iqbal

    That attack won't win you much tbh. Taj is the best of the lot but he hasn't quite found his feet in T20s.

    Should try to pick up Sami but he'd most likely be picked up by Karachi.

    We wont get Sami even though I like him and hopefully not Rahat Ali or Ehsan Adil. The ones I mentioned have a lot to prove. Even Umar Gul but he is helped by being in the Gold Category so now everybody has a luxury of picking him without worrying too much

    There is that guy Hasan Ali from Sialkot, I hope he is picked by Javed! He is potentially the best fast bowler in domestic cricket!

    I still like Ehsan Adil! He used to be very smart in T20s especially in the starting stage of his career! He can find his lost rhythm back!

    He is not on the same level as Junaid Khan or Umar Gul, even Imran Khan Snr. He is just hyped because he swings it every now and then. Obviously all of them are better than me and my comments are merely as a dan but when you compare each of them he falls short. Also who is Hasan Ali? Any Videos? Taj Wali is also quick and can swing it

    Taj Wali is not up to the mark in T20s yet! No videos of Hasan Ali are available! Didn't u watch the Haier T20 cup SF between Sialkot and Peshawar some months ago? He was their main strike bowler!

    Did not like his comment "they should all go back to Peshawar" regarding Rizwan, Riffat and Ifthikar, I was banned for telling Down2Earth he was idiotic for claiming Peshawar got to the semis because it was a fix. They are hypocrites over there. He only supports players from Lahore and people overlook it due to the fact that half of them on the forum are from Lahore. Me and @Passionate Pakistani were called racist for promoting players in Khyber. It is complete hypocrisy

    As far as I recall he was a decent poster in terms of cricketing knowledge
