The third edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to be a grand one with many more foreign cricketers showing their interest in the league. Last year it took place at The Dome, Dubai Sports City and by the end of it, around 100 players were either picked afresh or retained by franchises from the previous season.
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.
So far here are the Teams and their Squad for 2018…every team is supposed to have 16 players, rest of the players will added after PSL 2018 draft.
