PSL MANAGEMENT DECISION: Karachi: The franchise of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) may minimize the size of the PSL fifth edition planned for next year in Pakistan. Reliable sources confirmed to Geography News that in principle they have agreed that the teams will consist of 18 players instead of the 21 players in the next tournament.
PSL management decreasing the salary
At a PSL meeting in Karachi on Monday, a source said: “This is related to the reduction of the team’s salary budget, and now the team will have 18 players instead of 21 players.” “In addition, we have the entire league in Pakistan. Therefore, the team does not need to bring extra players to avoid the last minute travel needs.” PSL management decided to reduce the team’s salary cap to $1.1 million.
How many players will be included in a team?
According to sources, the number of players in the category will be determined soon, but consensus has been reached that the team can retain at least eight players before the fifth PSL player draft. The PSL2020 player draft will be held at the end of November and player registration will begin next week. PCB hopes that PSL 5 will have more top players to participate in, and these activities will be fully played in the fourth venues in Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Rawalpin in Pakistan.
