[team_gallery id=”658″ title=”” number=”6″ columns=”4″ orderby=”default” show_full_table_link=”0″ align=”none”]

Last year had seen a most important draft held before groups were permitted to move their players, which was followed with a mini-Draft moving in the closing of the Pakistan Super League which has been held in Lahore.

This season, as many as eight matches are anticipated to perform in Pakistan, such as some in Lahore and Karachi and it has to be seen in case a new Draft is going to be necessary. PSL Chairman Ehsan Mani has said that the foreign players chosen will be expected to play with those Pakistan-based matches also.

The nation has a strong cricketing tradition and keeps dishing out notable players on the scene. The nation’s capability at hurling fast bowlers on the cricketing arena is all but outstanding.

PSL TEAMS AND SQUADS 2019

The format of the game has been gorgeously designed with six teams taking part in the competition. The PSL 2018 Teams are not primarily city based rather they have been branded on the name of the CAPITAL OF Province, as Karachi being Capital of Sindh.

Likewise, Lahore is the Capital of PunjabPeshawar is Capital of KPK & Quetta is the Capital of Baluchistan. Along with this a Capital Territory Team is named at Capital Islamabad whereas Multan representing Province of Central Punjab.  

The idea behind is to unite the Provinces, the Capital territory and small cities. This will engage more and more people in the game as there is a huge difference between the population of the CITY and a Providence.

PSL TEAMS REPRESENTATION

A Single City PSL Team would engage only one city while a Provincial team participating franchise would engage the entire province.

Looking at the history of the Pakistan Super League you will find the scintillating Rivalry between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators whose matches got the maximum turnout of the Crowed and these were extensively awaited by the fans.

What can be more promising than this that both teams have qualified for the Qualifiers in both seasons i.e. PSL 2016 & PSL 2017 and both of the time it happens that Zalmi was in winning position but in the end lost the match by a narrow margin?

PSL 2019 teams are allowed to have eighteen players who are assigned the batches of the teams under the specific contract highlighting the terms and conditions. No franchise can hold more the 4 offshore players on their sides whereas it is also mandatory to add 2 beginner players in each FRANCHISE.

PSL 2019 Matches will be the most awaited and thrilled ones this time. In PSL 4, the most amazing news for the Pakistani fans is that,

KARACHI KINGS and LAHORE QALANDERS were not being able to produce the good show in both of the seasons i.e. PSL 2016 & PSL 2017 but the hopes are quite high in PSL 2018 as both teams have undergone significant change in their squad.

KARACHI KINGS TEAM

Karachi Kings team has been an integral part of PSL since the league Started. On 03 December 2015, PCB unveiled the franchises to interested parties. Karachi franchise was bought by Salman Iqbal CEO ARY Media Group for the US $26 Million for the period of Ten Years.

Karachi Kings is the most expensive franchise of the PSL. After having a pair of really underwhelming seasons, the Karachi Kings will need to do a lot better in this 3rd season of the Pakistan Super League. If the owners want to have the trophy in their hand in PSL 2018 Karachi Kings need to do something out of the box.

A similar shocking decision is of dropping of Christopher Henry Gayle as he is considered as the deadliest batsman of the T20 world as he is such kind of a player who can mesmerize you in any game. Letting burst off Chris Gayle, they have got managed to maintain again Pakistan’s Usman Khan and Usama Mir while Ravi Boparai gets some other pass.

His wibble-wobble medium-pacers can be of use on sluggish and sluggish surfaces. The facet might be led with the aid of Imad Wasim and also will have Babar Azzam and Mohammad Amir of their line-up, thereby making it aside this is very dependent on their Pakistani Players to dish out an awesome overall performance throughout the 3rd PSL Season.

The Karachi Kings 2019 squad for PSL 4 has been finalized in the PSL draft 2019.
