In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the most experienced and seasoned campaigners taking part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 edition.

All the PSL franchises have made sure that they pick a balanced combination of youth and experience in their squad and deliver to the best of their abilities. Let’s take a look at some of the most experienced and proven performers of the T20 format.
- Kieron Pollard
You just can’t ignore the West Indians when you talk about T20 cricket. The current limited-overs captain of West Indies Kieron Pollard has been picked by the Peshawar Zalmi franchise and he also played for them in the last edition of the PSL.
Pollard played a key role in taking the Peshawar Zalmi to the finals in the PSL 2019 and he’s going to be one of their main players for the event.
Pollard represents Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he also contains a huge amount of experience in this particular format. Watch out for some lusty blows when Kieron takes the field for Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020.
- Imran Tahir
Leg-spinners are always a hot commodity in the limited-overs cricket and any team would feel lucky to have someone like Imran Tahir in their squad.
The Multan Sultans have picked the South Africa spin-wizard for the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Tahir boasts a huge experience of T20 cricket and he has played for unlimited teams around the world in different T20 competitions.
He also represented Multan in the previous editions and played an important role in some of their matches.
Imran Tahir has also represented the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he plays for Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
- Shahid Afridi
The former captain of Pakistan can easily fit into any T20 team of the world. Shahid Khan Afridi is not only a player but a complete brand. He has been retained by the Multan Sultans for the upcoming season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Afridi previously played for Peshawar Zalmi in the first two seasons and then he moved to Karachi Kings for the PSL 2018. In PSL 2019, Shahid Afridi once again changed his team and shifted to Multan Sultans.
He’s currently present in Bangladesh where he’s plying his trade in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). The Multan Sultans will certainly look to use his experience in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020.

After representing Karachi Kings in the first two editions, Shoaib Malik moved to Multan Sultans in the third edition of the PSL in 2018. He played for Multan in PSL 2018 and 2019.
Malik is one of the most experienced T20 players in the country and his T20 numbers speak of his caliber and stature in this particular format.
Malik was not retained by the Multan Sultans management and he was moved to Peshawar Zalmi for the upcoming edition of the PSL 2020.
- Liam Plunkett
The ICC World Cup 2019 winner Liam Plunkett has been picked by the Quetta Gladiators for the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Plunkett is one of the most experienced and seasoned players of white-ball cricket.
