All the franchises of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) have opted for a great pool of players and they have decided to select their squads on the basis of availability and form.
All the foreign players selected in the Draft are coming to Pakistan for the whole tournament which means we’re in for some great entertainment over the course of the next month.
Today, we’re going to look at some of the foreign and local players taking part in the competition and we believe they are going to mesmerize you with their performances.
- Shane Watson
The former Aussie all-rounder is a great asset for any T20 side in the world and he proved that with his destructive performance in the last edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
He played for Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 2019 and played a key role in their title victory for the first time.
Watson was also the player of the tournament as he scored 430 runs for Quetta Gladiators at an amazing T20 average of 43. He was also the highest boundary scorer in that competition with 43 fours and 22 sixes to his name across 12 PSL matches.
Shane Watson is certainly going to be a threat in the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The all-rounder is also looking to represent the defending champions once again in the PSL 2020.
- Jason Roy
The World Cup winner Jason Roy is going to represent the Quetta Gladiators in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Nobody can doubt the ability of Jason Roy in limited-overs cricket as the 30-year old opener has played many destructive knocks in his career.
He’s been England’s most prolific run-scorer in white-ball cricket from the past few years. Roy played in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 for Lahore Qalandars but he has been picked by the defending champions for the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Shane Watson and Jason Roy together opening for Quetta Gladiators would be a sight to watch.
- Hasan Ali
The current condition and form of the Peshawar Zalmi pacer Hasan Ali are not in great shape but he is certainly a force to reckon with in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Hasan Ali is the product of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and he played for Pakistan after a successful season with the Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 2016.
Hasan was also the highest wicket-taker of the PSL 2019 and he’s one of the strike bowlers for Peshawar Zalmi. Hasan has 51 wickets in 36 PSL matches at an amazing average of 18. A complete fit Hasan Ali is going to add a lot of value to the Peshawar Zalmi squad with his pace bowling.
- Chris Lynn
How can we forget Chris Lynn? This right-handed batsman from Australia is a complete beast in T20 cricket. When he plays in the T20 Leagues, his bat spits fire almost every time.
Chris Lynn has played 171 T20 matches so far in different T20 Leagues across the world but he’s going to make his debut for Lahore Qalandars in the PSL 2020.
He was also picked by the Qalandars for the PSL 2018 but he was ruled out of the tournament with an injury.
The destructive batter has been picked by the Lahore Qalandars for the upcoming PSL 2020 and we can’t wait to see Chris Lynn showcasing his magic in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition 5.
Chris Lynn is currently playing in the Big Bash League (BBL) and he is representing the Brisbane Heat. Lynn is enjoying a great form in the BBL 2020 and he also played a key role for Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 League title victory.
He is going through a purple patch right now and the fans of Lahore Qalandars would hope that he continues his great form in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition 5 as well.
- Wahab Riaz
When we talk about statistics of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) four editions, the name of Wahab Riaz comes right on top of the list. The left-arm paceman has been the most successful PSL bowler in the whole 5 years of its history.
Wahab Riaz was picked by the Peshawar Zalmi franchise in the first-ever edition of the PSL and since then, the speedster hasn’t looked back.
Wahab Riaz is the most successful PSL bowler according to his numbers. He has 65 wickets in 45 PSL matches that he played for Peshawar Zalmi.
He is on top of the list followed by Hasan Ali with 51 wickets. We can safely say that the success of Peshawar Zalmi had a huge backing from the performances of Hasan Ali and Wahab Riaz.
The duo is going to share the new ball once again in the PSL 2020 and the fans of Peshawar Zalmi are hoping for yet another clinical performance by both of these pacers in the Pakistan Super League edition (PSL) 5.
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is just a month away and the fans can’t wait for the fifth edition to get started. The good news is that the tournament is going to be hosted in Pakistan completely.
For the first time in its five years history, the home grounds of Pakistan will host 34 Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches on four different venues in the country.
In the previous few seasons, the Qaddafi Stadium of Lahore and the National Stadium of Karachi had the honor of hosting the PSL matches.
However, in the upcoming edition of the PSL, the beautiful Multan Cricket Stadium and the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi will also host some of the matches of the tournament.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is striving hard to bring back international cricket to the country and they have enjoyed some success as well recently. The Sri Lankan Cricket Team toured the country for a successful Test series and things are falling into place slowly and steadily.
