    The reliance of all PSL teams on their foreign players is so much that:

    • 7 out of the 10 highest run scorers of this season so far are foreign batsmen.
    • Fielders taking the most no. of catches have also been 7 out of 10 foreign players.
    • Best wicket keeper batsmen are also foreign players
    • Best performing spinners are also foreign players and best bowling figures also belong to a foreign player
    • Faster century scored is also by a foreign batsman
    The dearth of local players performing is so much that I wonder who would have gone ahead to win this tournament had there been no foreign players in this league?

    Talking about local players, its worrying because:

    • Your highest run scorer is Shadab Khan who is not considered a front-line batsman
    • Your 2nd highest run scorer is Kamran Akmal who is not even close to getting selected for the national team
    • Your only century maker is also Kamran Akmal who is 38 years old
    • Your highest wicket taker is Hasnain who has one of the worst Economy rates from a front-line bowler in this tournament so far

    I think Zalmi would win without foreign players.

    Our Main batsmen are - Kamran, Haider & Malik (all Pakistanis)
    Main Bowlers are - Wahab & Hasan (Pakistanis)

    Karachi and Peshawar are the only 2 teams who have been doing well even without much contribution from their foreign players.

    IU's all main players other than Shadab are Munro, Ronchi, Ingram, Steyn
    MS have Moeen, Tahir, Rossouw with main contributions other than Shan Masood
    LQ's main players are Dunk, Patel, Lynn other than Shaheen
    QG rely massively on Watson, Roy and Cutting

    Lahore, Multan and Quetta rely heavily on foreigners.

    Zalmi don’t have pollard due to injury, otherwise I’m sure he would be one of their top performing players.

    zalmi however the worst is the difference in fielding. Batting and bowling aside, the fielding from our local boys has been below par which speaks volumes of the level of professionalism in our players and the reason why we cant ever rise up. Fielding is an absolute must and PSL must be the platform to use for improvement for improvement in our international team

    Zalmi are the best without foreign players!

    Zalmi have Kamran Akmal, Haider Ali and Shoaib Malik as batsmen all local players and Rahat Ali, Hassan Ali, Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah all Pakistani bowlers as our bowlers!!

    Rahat Ali on a seaming wicket is a nightmare for batsmen! He needs a bit of grass in the wicket to be effective!!

    With the exception of Haider Ali who looks good and Wahab Riaz if any of those players were picked for the intl t20 team I would be very upset
    I’m expecting to be upset however

    From Qalandars only Shaheen warrants a place in T20 National side.

    These players have played at international level for Pakistan and their performance had been good at some point of time. They regressed in later parts of their careers but at some point they were integral part of the team and atleast in PSL, they have some worth as they have played for Pakistan!!

    Karachi agar eik legspinner add kar le apni team mein umar khan ki jaga although umar acha youngster hai but 2 left arm spinners are too much in my opinion and somewhere down the line agar koi leftie hai middle order mein like Dunk he would take advantage of left arm spin! So, I would say Karachi should replace Umar Khan with Usama Mir if they can! Usman Qadir ko kisi team ne select nahi kiya i am surprised!!
