    Shoaib already gave up the KK captaincy. Don't think he is all that interested in captaincy nowadays.

    Only two players from Platanium, Diamond and GOld can be retained. So you would have to drop one of Akmal, Baz and Narine.

    Drop Delport? Seriously????? Come on man, he is a great player! But unfortunately Mcallum didn't give him chances.

    Hafeez is one of the best captains/tacticians in all of Pakistan even today. That's probably his best asset actually - his captaincy.

    I know it's not a good move keeping in mind the future, but Hafeez as captain would be a good move by Multan.

    I agree. Hafeez is a good captain. His record was 18W, 11L. That's a win percentage of 62%. Very admirable. I just hope captaincy doesn't translate into him pushing himself as a #3 when he's a #5 or #6.

    Captaincy is not judged on numbers alone. Hafeez failed as captain when it actually mattered- ie in two T20 WCs. Indeed, the group stage exit in 2014 was the first time Pakistan failed to reach the semi-finals.

    Plus he had terrible man-management skills as borne out by his unilateral approach to the captaincy. Look no further than his treatment of Razzaq- Hafeez refused to pick Razzaq for most of the 2012 WC, and in the only game Razzaq played he wasn't even given a chance to bowl.

    That's even before I mention the concerns you have touched on:

    If you accept it is not a good move for the future, why are you in favour of giving him the captaincy? It would be a backwards step, which would prevent new talent developing. Either give the captaincy to someone who has experience in nurturing young talent (irrespective of nationality) and/or give it to a potential future captain of PCT so they can gain some vital captaincy experience.

    2. He insists on batting in the top 3, which will mean denying young players the opportunities they deserve. There's already enough of that going on in the domestic circuit. The PSL is supposed to be a platform for youngsters to shine on the big stage. However, Hafeez would view that as a threat to his own position in PCT and so as captain he would stifle youth development.

    I agree he was tactically a decent captain. People may complain they wanted a better leader, and that is probably true. But from what I saw he was far more proactive in LOI captaincy than Misbah or Afridi (though Misbah did have his moments with captaincy in LOI too). It's funny the only captains from Pakistan with an attacking mindset I've seen in the last decade or so (Inzi was defensive too) have been YK, Hafeez and Sarfraz. I've been more impressed by Sarfraz than the other two though, better tactically and better man management skills.

    I think it was a little foolish that Lahore didn't pick him as captain and went with Azhar Ali. Was a big mistake.

    For the PSL really they should go with captains that ideally have captaincy experience and well known names. This creates hype for the tournament too. Malik, Misbah, Afridi, Hafeez, Sarfraz should all be captains ideally.

    The Lahore Qalandar management guys said that Paddy Upton didn't think Hafeez was good enough to be picked in the first two categories.

    Whats his acheivements as a captain.He cant even captain faislabad SNGPL when misbah azhar was there.He failed in ICC events.Lastly a captain should be A performer and leader from front and hafeez is terrible in both of it.Cant forget when he made sohaib (who was on his very early stage) to open and forced him to take strike and face steyn in T20 and positioned himself at non-striking end

    I don't know whether this is a compulsion or not but teams can retain upto 10 players from the the previous edition.2 players each from platinum,diamond and gold category,3 players from silver and 1 from emerging category.Multan will have a pre-draft in which they'll pick 10 players in the above mentioned pattern as well.

    As far as foreign players are concerned in previous year they had maximum of 5 players and in supplementary players can could've had maximum of 2 foreign players.This year they might have 20-24 players per side so we can't say anything about the foreign recruits.

    The window will probably open by 15th f I'm not wrong, the first major transfer will be Shahid Afridi to Karachi kings.

    Peshawar may release Hafeez as he is expected to captain Multan

    I'm most interested to see who the captains will be. I would have thought Hafeez would be captaining Lahore than Multan, but seems like the reverse is true, but I'll be surprised if he doesn't end up moving and captaining, there's a slot freed up, and I don't think Mccullum will keep captaincy either after LQs performance.

    Would lead to thinking that Malik would go to Lahore. Lahore will end up with no franchise players with no certain captain, I wouldn't be surprised if they approached Malik to ask him to captain the side. I'd like to see Malik captain, he's been one of the best domestic captains we have had.

    COO of Qalandars said that Mcculum is a very devoted Qalandar and they will even try and get him in their SA league team.

    It is confusing me a little.

    They will surely be having a different player list this time around.So there will be some shuffles in the players' categories.They haven't released the list so how are they going to retain players from different categories?Hasan,Shadab and other players will be elevated and some players demoted,so how does it work?

    If they go by last year's list Hasan,Shadab,Asghar will be picked from emerging category which will be a travesty.

    Emerging category simply means players under 23. Hasan will no longer be in the list but Shadab and Asghar will.

    The player list won't be entirely different this time around apart from a few overseas players. From the remaining players in the list each team can retain 10 players from the previous year's team squad.

    That is exactly the question,you see.

    How are they going to retain players from certain categories when they don't know which player is in which category?They haven't released a list in which players will given their respective category.This year's list will be a different one,even though changes will be on a small scale.

    This one I am clear - the previous classification is void now. What'll happen is team will be allowed to retain 10 players in total, in respective quota. Here players are not fixed, neither their previous status is valid. Rather, every player will be given a fresh contract.

    It's like an internal draft for every Franchise within their players. For example, take Champions Zalmi -

    They have 2 picks for Diamond & 2 for Platinum (Including foreigners, I am not going to that) - so, they might wish to retain Sammy, Afridi, Tamim, Sakib, Morgan, MoHa, KAkmal, Hasan, JK & Iftekhar. But, they can't give everyone Diamond or Platinum deal - at one point, they might have to offer Afridi a Platinum or Shakib a Gold or Tamim a Silver contract - if the player is happy, it's done; otherwise that player is released & he'll go to open bid. Here, teams are given 10 picks among own roster, in 5 pay group - if Gayle is ready to accept a Gold contract, KK will be more than happy to retain him, but don't think they'll block 1 of 2 Diamond (I believe the order is DPGSE) for Gayle now - he'll be released.

    Still, I am sure, many local players will be happy to accept an inferior retainer (that's retained at a lower payment), rather than risking unsold in open bid.

    Brad haddin is appointed as fielding coach by Cricket AUS for 2 years

    this probably means he will no longer play for united i hope islambad find any young domestic wicket keeper

    but i think most probably go with sam billings if he is available

    He had a pretty poor tournament with the bat so this wouldn't surprise me.

    Umair Masood and Mohammad Hasan are both options. The former showcased his abilities in the u19 WC whilst the latter has just been awarded a central contract so it wouldn't surprise me if he is picked up in the PSL. Doesn't get enough batting opportunities as he bats at eight so it's difficult to judge but from what i've seen he looks pretty inventive and has a good SR (152 in t20s).

    i think hasan will be part of karachi kings squad and as for rehan afridi he is not some one who is popular

    compare to other pak wicket keeper so realistically united will pick foriegn wicket keeper which may

    be ramdin or billings or ben dukett who was already with them last session

    Karachi already have Saifullah Bangash and Kumar Sangakarra so I doubt Hasan will go there, unless one of those two leave.

    I never mentioned Rehan Afridi.

    I mentoned Umair Masood (the U19 wicketkeeper who was impressive in the WC) and he has been selected by Rawalpindi for the t20 cup, so this is his chance to shine if he wants to be picked for the PSL. He has a decent captain in Umar Amin so I am sure he will be treated fairly.

    Billings is a possibility unless he is selected by England for the tri-series.

    my bad
    i read somewhere that karachi will pick hasan over saifullah in next PSL so he might

    not available

    umair is very good prospect i saw him in u19 worldcup also i hope he performs and picked

    in PSL

    Yes I noticed. Great news- I think he is the only keeper in Pindi's squad so this is his chance to shine.

    Slightly surprised Hasan hasn't been selected- will be interesting to see which keepers were chosen in front of him.

    There couldn't have been a better team for Sir Asif.

    I assume the rules will remain the same with one emerging player required in the playing XI. Haven't heard about any changes.

    I hope Hassan Ali and Muhammad Asghar aren't in the 'emerging' category anymore. Zalmi had an unfair advantage in PSL 2 because of their emerging players.

    KK, LQ, IU, and QG all had relatively unknown and untested players to fill that requirement.

    Don't agree with the highlighted part. By the time PSL 2 started, Hasan Ali had only just started his international career and Asghar had yet to (and still hasn't) played for Pakistan.

    In any case Hasan Ali will definitely not be in the "emerging" category for PSL 3, not least for financial reasons (and rightly so).

    Hassan Ali was 6+ months into his career and would've been picked up by any team even if he was in a better category. Even though Asghar is yet to play for Pakistan, he was one of the stars of PSL 1.

    It made sense for Shadab to be an emerging player last year since he was young, and unknown (unless you watched the U19WC). But I don't think Shadab should be an emerging player in the upcoming PSL. You can promote him to Platinum category (not advocating for this to happen) and people will still buy him.

    On the other hand, it would make sense to keep Hassan Khan in the emerging category since no team will pick him up if he's in another category and it's not as if he lighted up the PSL last year.

    Do you know how many games he played in that period for Pakistan? Only 13- and he was still very much a work in progress at that point so I don't think it was an issue for him to be classed as an emerging player for PSL 2.

    Asghar is a good example of an emerging player. Asghar is still in the early stages of his career and EP classification means he is more likely to play given a certain number of EPs have to play each playing xi. Plus, as an EP he is not competing with the more seasoned TTFs for one of the domestic spaces.

    However, PSL 3 is likely to be a different story. The likes of Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan are now established members of a CT winning national team, and so they will (deservedly) be rewarded with very healthy pay increases (which by definition means a change of category).

    It may well be that the EP category changes in the future to stipulate that an EP must both be u-23 (as is the case now) and cannot have played above a certain number of internationals, but on the whole the market mechanism will ensure that is the case anyway.

    PCB needs to clarify the rules before the tournament. Last year the Islambad United camp got the rules changed just before or during the tournament so they could include Shadab if I'm not mistaken.

    TBH, if Hafeez is there at the cost of Umar Akmal, then I have no issues. Lahore needed some stability in middle order as all of their batsmen are hit or miss. Shoiab Malik would be ideal though.
