After a fierce competition and debate, the drafting of players in each franchise finally came to an end. PSL draft took place in National Cricket Academy for the fifth edition. International stars Shane Watson, Ben Cutting, Liam Dawson and Darren Sammy have been looking forward to the event as mentioned in their social media accounts.

Current champions Quetta Gladiators have managed to bag the likes of World Cup champions-like Jason Roy. They also have their hands on the fiery pacer Sohail Khan to add spice in their squad.

Hand in hand Peshawar Zalmi are no far behind with respect to their squad. They have managed to strengthen certain key positions by including the likes of Shoaib Malik and Rahat Ali to their roster. Kieron Pollard and Daren Sammy are the international stars in their squad along with a few more.

Two times champions, Islamabad United, on the other hand, opted to go for performers that have already been in their team as the “champion squad” as they brought back Rumman Raees and English hitter Phil Salt among others while also choosing the legendary spearhead pacer, Dale Steyn, into their team. Dale Steyn’s addition has made this PSL extremely interesting.

Karachi Kings surprised everyone by adding one of the most debated and criticized player, Sharjeel Khan, in their roster who was banned owing to match-fixing, Kings also opted for English powerhouse, Alex Hales, to add extra batting firepower.

Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans are often regarded as strugglers but the fun house of the whole PSL universe.
