PSL Teams 2018
The HBL PSL players list is placed here. The Pakistan Super League squads for the third edition of the competition will be announced after the PSL Draft that will be held closer to the start of the tournament.
Teams will be allowed to retain a few players going into the PSL Draft but with a sixth team added to the mix, it will be interesting to see if the Pakistan Cricket Board allows teams to hold back on too many players. Foreign PSL players will be paid USD 10,000 per match to play in Pakistan next season.
This was after the Multan Sultans became the sixth side to join the Pakistan Super League following a bidding procedure. They join the Peshawar Zalmis, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings, Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United as the other teams in the competition. The PSL squads for the third season will be updated here as soon as the Draft is over.
