2nd Pakistan Super League

The second edition of the Pakistan Super League or PSL has already started. Different franchise owners have recently met the PSL management and its Chairman, Najam Sethi. In the meeting, it was decided that every PSL team can retain up to 16 players from their already existing squads. All these players are eligible for retention regardless of the fact that they are playing or not. Retention will allow teams to have a chance to renegotiate with existing players. This transfer window will allow all the teams to have an ideal balance, in terms of all the players.

UAE is again going to be the desirable venue for the second PSL. The tournament is expected to commence from October of this year. At the same time of the year, national team would also be having series with UAE. According to the first draft, last year’s bottom team shall be given an advantage in the second PSL. Thus, Lahore Qalandars will have the first pick in every round, following Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United.

The major five franchises have agreed to increase the salary to $1.2 million in PSL 2. All the emerging players of the tournament shall be under their 20s. In addition, at least one player in the team should be from the respected franchise. According to Najam Sethi, the second edition of PSL is going to be more exciting and extravagant. There would be too much entertainment and sports in comparison to the earlier tournament.
