the first ever Pakistan Super League aka PSL is happening very soon and this time instead of an auction PSL has decided on a draft system.

According to PCB, there are few categories in draft that players are put through dpending on their capabilities and will be paid accordingly.

the first thing to know about the draft is that there are several categories. it goes as below –

  1. Platinum
  2. Diamond
  3. Gold
  4. Silver
  5. Emerging Players

As you can see in these 5 categories that it follows a pattern. Any normal person with decent thinking capability can tell that Platinum is the highest category with emerging players put on the last categoryof course the players are paid according to their category as well.

however, each team must choose 3 players each from Platinum to Gold category. which makes 9 players. then they have to choose 5 players from Silver and 2 players from Emerging players category making it a minimum of 16 players per team. Lastly, they can have 4 more players if they want to and only 1 of those players will be foreign.

  • Total players – 310
  • max number of player – 100
  • minimum number of player – 80

as the stats show, a total of 310 players are available in the draft and a maximum of 100 players will be able to take part in this league.

now lets take a look at the salaries –

  • Platinum – ICON – $200,000
  • Platinum – Normal – $140,000
  • Diamond – $70,000
  • Gold – $50,0000
  • Silver – $25,000
  • Emerging Players – not fixed

I=there are only 5 ICON players and one of them will be playing on each team. other than that, Platinum is the highest paid category and Silver is the lowest.

we hope that PSL is a success for Pakistan Cricket.
