    PSL 8 to run from 9 February to 19 March 2023

    HBL PSL Governing Council meeting held in Lahore

    Lahore, 2 September 2022:

    The Governing Council of the HBL Pakistan Super League met at the National High Performance Centre in Lahore today. All six HBL PSL franchises were represented along with PCB officials who are members of the GC. Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Ramiz Raja chaired the meeting.

    The meeting started with the Chairman PCB congratulating the GC on a hugely successful and record-breaking HBL PSL 7 edition which was the first one ever to be staged in Pakistan uninterrupted since the start of the league in 2016. The successful organisation of the tournament was made possible despite significant external challenges and record revenue and viewership was attained through the two action-packed leagues in Karachi and Lahore.

    Some important discussions around the scheduling for the next edition of the HBL PSL were made. It was decided that the HBL PSL 8 will run from 9 February to 19 March 2023. At least four venues will be used for hosting the matches, including Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi and Multan. Further discussions for firming up the detailed schedule will take place between the franchises and the PCB in due course.

    The franchises were also given an update on the status of accounts for HBL PSL 7.

    During the GC an update was provided in respect of commercial matters related to HBL PSL 7 and HBL PSL 8. Follow-up meetings will commence next week to finalise plans for HBL PSL 8 with all in agreement to work closely in the build-up to HBL PSL 8 to achieve their common goals for the league.

    As per a media report:

    The draft for season eight of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) is expected on November 18 after the franchises rejected the player auction model.

    According to the details, team owners are not ready for the auction model but have agreed with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over their willingness to continue discussing the auction model in the future.

    Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja wanted players to be selected through an auction in the PSL, similar to the IPL. Discussions were also taking place over the hybrid model of auction plus draft, but the franchises had already unanimously rejected it.

    For the eighth edition scheduled in different cities of the country from February 9 to March 19 next year, the cricketers will be selected through the previous draft model.

    The board had asked to choose a day from November 16 to 21. It was agreed to increase the salary cap of the cricketers. The final decision will be taken in the next few days. Foreign players have shown interest in coming to Pakistan, no one will refuse because of money; however different franchise leagues will disturb PSL.

    Under the procedure, PCB will first determine the categories of domestic cricketers; if any objection can be applied for a review, then the trade window will open in which the franchises can exchange players for retention. As usual, a maximum of eight players will be retained, after which the draft will be held.

    The categories of eight players were upgraded following the local player category renewal process for the HBL Pakistan Super League 2023 as the Pakistan Cricket Board also opened registration window for the foreign players. The player lists have been shared with the six franchises for the tournament to be played across four venues from 9 February to 19 March 2023.

    This includes seven players who are presently in Australia for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. They are: Mohammad Wasim Junior (Islamabad United, from Gold to Diamond), Shahnawaz Dahani and Shan Masood (Multan Sultans, from Gold to Diamond), Haider Ali and Mohammad Haris (Peshawar Zalmi; Haider from Diamond to Platinum, Haris from Silver to Gold), and Mohammad Nawaz and Naseem Shah (Quetta Gladiators; Nawaz from Diamond to Platinum, Naseem from Gold to Diamond).

    Aamer Jamal of Peshawar Zalmi is the other player whose category has been enhanced following his debut for Pakistan against England in the home T20Is. The all-rounder featured in the fifth and sixth T20Is in Lahore, helping Pakistan to win the fifth T20I after conceding eight runs in the final over when England needed 15 runs for victory.

    Meanwhile, categories of five cricketers have been downgraded. They are: Hasan Ali (from Platinum to Diamond), Faheem Ashraf (Diamond to Gold) (both Islamabad United), Sohaib Maqsood (Multan Sultans, from Diamond to Gold), Wahab Riaz (Peshawar Zalmi, Platinum to Diamond) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (Quetta Gladiators, Platinum to Gold).

    The teams will now put forward relegation requests for the players before finalising retentions. After relegation requests are floated, all teams are given an opportunity to meet the player’s base category. If the player’s base category is not matched, the player may be relegated to a category below his base category.

    U23 players cannot be part of a squad as an Emerging player for more than two years unless they have played nine or less matches in those two years.

    Local category player renewals (team-wise):

    Islamabad United - Asif Ali, Shadab Khan (both Platinum), Hasan Ali, Wasim Jr (both Diamond), Azam Khan, Danish Aziz, Faheem Ashraf, Musa Khan, Waqas Maqsood, Zafar Gohar, Zahid Mehmood, (all Gold), Athar Mahmood, Mohammad Akhlaq, Nasir Nawaz (all Silver), Mohammad Huraira, Mubasir Khan and Zeeshan Zamir (Emerging)

    Karachi Kings - Babar Azam, Imad Wasim (both Platinum), Mohammad Amir (Diamond), Amir Yamin, Mir Hamza, Sahibzada Farhan, Sharjeel Khan, Usman Shinwari (all Gold), Mohammad Ilyas, Muhammad Imran Jr, Rohail Nazir, Umaid Asif (all Silver), Faisal Akram, Mohammad Taha, Qasim Akram and Talha Ahsan (all Emerging)

    Lahore Qalandars - Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi (all Platinum), Mohammad Hafeez (Diamond), Abdullah Shafique (Gold), Ahmad Daniyal Latif, Akif Javed, Imran Randhawa, Kamran Ghulam, Maaz Khan, Sohail Akhtar, Zeeshan Ashraf (all Silver), Syed Faridoun Mahmood and Zaman Khan (both Emerging)

    Multan Sultans - Mohammad Rizwan (Platinum), Khushdil Shah, Shahnawaz Dahani, Shan Masood (all Diamond), Anwar Ali, Imran Khan Snr, Rumman Raees, Sohaib Maqsood (all Gold), Rizwan Hussain (Silver), Aamer Azmat, Abbas Afridi and Ihsanullah (Emerging)

    Peshawar Zalmi - Haider Ali (Platinum), Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz (both Diamond), Aamer Jamal, Amad Butt, Arshad Iqbal, Hussain Talat, Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Haris, Sohail Khan, Usman Qadir (all Gold), Ali Majid, Khalid Usman, Mohammad Amir Khan, Mohammad Umar, Salman Irshad, Sameen Gul, Tayyab Tahir (all Silver), Arish Ali Khan, Sirajuddin and Yasir Khan (Emerging)

    Quetta Gladiators - Mohammad Nawaz (Platinum), Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Hasnain, Naseem Shah (all Diamond), Ahsan Ali, Mohammad Irfan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal (all Gold), Ali Imran, Ghulam Mudassar, Hassan Khan, Khurram Shahzad (all Silver), Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Ashar Qureshi and Mohammad Shahzad (all Emerging)

    Hopefully PsL will try to lure some superstars to the league how about having a special dispensation like an executive player as Cummins or Buttler to sign for hefty $$$ and play 3-4 games will add to the brand of PSL which already has become a decent platform for young overseas players to make their name proven profiles such as Phil Salt, David Malan, Tim David etc.

    But if they can add another category and lure in the A-listers like Starc Cummins Buttler or Stokes for 3/4 games then seeds for next level step will be sown

    Letís be realistic.The likes of Butler,Starc and Cummins will not play in PSL which is fair enough.PSL is a pretty good league even though many big names from overseas donít play in it.I will be more than happy if PSL can produce local talent.

    Itís a sports league, not a McDonaldís where you are making a deluxe or combo order.

    T20 league cricket is basically a mercenary sport where a player plays for Delhi Capitals in March and Karachi Kings in April and then Barbados Royals in May.

    Thereís absolutely no loyalty and is simply about cashing checks. ICC needs to run these domestic T20 leagues more professionally and emulate other professional leagues like the NBA, Soccer leagues etc where players are locked into one team for extended period of time.

    McDonald's or KFC important thing is the brand of PSL should strengthen and if players like Starc Cummins etc can play some games in PSL then it definitely will, as far as ICC is concerned the less said the better don't you know they have given of almost 80 days window for IPL

    In fact, ICC should make 100-day window for domestic T20 leagues and devote the rest of the year to international cricket.

    The arguments given by the Franchises against the Auction is that they don't want the market forces to dictate how much they should pay to players, they fear that they would have to end up paying way more for avg players than the current draft system is allowing them too.

    This is not practical with so many leagues taking place in every month of the year i.e. BBL in Dec-Jan, Sri Lanka T-20 League in Dec, BPL in Jan, SA T-20 League in Dec-Jan, UAE T-20 League in Dec-Jan, PSL in Feb-March, IPL in March-May, Natwest T-20 League in June-August, Hundred in August-September, CPL in Sept-Oct. This is almost a year full of activity and the ICC cannot allow a full window for all these leagues.

    What the ICC should do is assess the leagues in terms of the highest amount of revenue, viewership and only allow proper windows to the top 3-4 leagues which have the highest amount of revenue and total domestic and global viewership.

    Really doesn’t make any sense. If every team has the same budget then what’s the issue? Sure some players would go for a lot of money but then other players can be cheap buys as well.

    The only solution is to do a Global T20 league. That is all T20 franchise teams should play in one league. Split it into two conferences so that PSL and IPL teams wonít have to play each other until the playoffs.

    Home away format with the top 8 teams from each conference going to the playoffs.

    Give this league a proper 6 month window

    This is both a fair argument and a conservative one.

    I imagine that franchises would not mind paying big money if the cream of world cricket were available. However, as it stands, weíre still not getting the biggest names in the PSL and thus pay packets should reflect that.

    However, by keeping the pay relatively low, you invariably lessen the chance of good players showing up. Itís a chicken and egg scenario really.

    Not for only one league, for all leagues. For example, ICC can say March-May will be slotted for domestic T20 leagues. PSL, IPP, CPL etc can hold their season in that timeframe. Might be unfair to Australia due to the autumn/winter there during that time, but an exception can be made for them.

    Current T20 structure is basically a mercenary sport. IPL deserves credit for locking its domestic talents from competing in foreign leagues.

    I wish the PSL season was longer. PCB should just focus on domestic product and tests and ODIs with teams that want to play us.

    Extending PSL will bring in most revenue.

    Then we can have exhibition games like "PSL's BEST 11" vs USA or Ireland or England or Australia or Sri Lanka or whoever wants to play. These games will be sell outs.

    They need to market their talent better I feel.

    Forget ICC/BCCI and always depending on these guys.

    Pick order for HBL PSL 2023 Player Draft finalised

    Lahore, 31 October 2022:

    Defending champions Lahore Qalandars will make the first pick in the HBL Pakistan Super League 2023 Player Draft. The Pick Order was decided through a random draw on Monday at the Pakistan Cricket Board offices and participated by representatives of the six franchises.

    The winners of the 2019 edition, Quetta Gladiators, and 2021 championships, Multan Sultans, will have second and third picks. The fourth and fifth picks will be done by 2020 winners Karachi Kings and two-time champions (2016 and 2018) Islamabad United.

    Peshawar Zalmi, who won the first final of the HBL PSL to be played in Pakistan in 2017, will make the sixth pick.

    The next 17 rounds were decided through a special statistical tool.

    Usman Wahla, PSL 8 Tournament Director: “We have set small milestones for our flagship event and Pick Order for HBL PSL 2023 was one of the targets. This has set the tone for this year’s Player Draft as the teams will now have absolute clarity on their turn and how they will make best use of their chances to pick players for one of the most grueling and fiercely-contested leagues.

    “Player Registration window for foreign players is also open and we are receiving encouraging responses, which is a testament to the reputation of the HBL PSL and how much the top players want to be part of it.

    “Next year’s event will be staged at four venues – Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan - and we are working extremely hard to not only deliver this event according to its stature and reputation, but also introduce a few initiatives to make the event more spectator-friendly.”

    The details about the HBL PSL 2023 Player Draft will be announced in due course.

    As per reports, a good selection of international players will be part of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 Draft.


    Second-ranked T20I bowler Wanindu Hasaranga and top-ranked all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan have shown interest in the draft, expected on November 18.

    situation in pakistan will only get worse in the coming months. Political instability and violence is a perfect recipe to stop foreign players to come to pakistan. The england tour too will be in danger.

    That video above is from the official PSL twitter account. Players agents register their interest directly with the PSL, rather than making public statements. Thus itís authorised and official.

    Iím gutted though that the NZ-England test series be played from 16-28 feb. That means itís likely that Liam Livingston, Harry Brook etc will probs miss most definitely if not all of the PSL. Sucks

    UAE, Nepal, Maldives, Canada, USA, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Uganda.

    Like seriously now we are going to be getting players from these countries in the PSL because most big names are not around as usual as their on national duty.

    These past two T20 world cups have increased my respect for the PSL. Guys like Shadab and Rauf were able to experiment and improve their game because of this tournament and now they are replicating their PSL performances in the highest level of T20 cricket, the T20 world cup. If it wasn't for the PSL we would've never known that Shadab had the ability to bat at a high strike rate in T20 cricket and that Iftikhar can smash a couple of sixes in the middle overs.

    It isn't all sunshine and rainbows because the PSL has also produced failures like Asif, Faheem, and Khushdil but that's to be expected. Not every player is going to be world-class or even decent in Asif's case.

    I'll be watching PSL 8 with more interest than before because team Pakistan has proven that this is a high-quality tournament.

    This has probably been the best lot of foreign players since the first two tournaments. The countries youíve mentioned are just part of the PSL PR guyís remit to show how many players are happy and keen to play in the big competition.

    Not the end of the world

    The proposed date of the PSL draft was November 18, but it could not be held due to other engagements of the board officials.

    There was a plan to hold the draft in Peshawar; however, it could not be implemented. There were also talks of going to Bhurban, but no hotel rooms were available. Surprisingly, the name of Abu Dhabi was also considered.

    As per sources, the draft will take place in Karachi on November 30 or the first week of December, where few foreign coaches will also attend the event. A decision will be taken after viewing the busy schedule of PCB and franchise officials.

    The team owners are unhappy with the situation and termed it mismanagement from the PCB. The only response upon contact was to inform them of the decision soon.

    According to sources, the top officials of a franchise may not participate in the draft for specific reasons, and they will have to be represented by someone else. One more team official is busy but now the board has decided that the fixed date will be followed.

    When contacted in this regard, the spokesperson of PCB told this correspondent that work is going on to finalize the draft date; as soon as more information is available, the media will be informed.
