Format

PSL Playoffs

The PSL is played in a double round-robin format. Every team plays each other twice and the top four advance to the Playoffs.

The league follows the rules and regulations dictated by the International Cricket Council, although it introduced DRS system in T20s which was later emulated by International Cricket Council as well. In the group stage, two points are awarded for a win, one for a no-result and none for a loss. In the event of tied scores after both teams have faced their quota of overs, a super over is used to determine the match winner. In the group stage teams are ranked on the following criteria:

  1. Higher number of points
  2. If equal, better run rate
  3. If equal, highest number of wins
  4. If equal, fewest losses
  5. If still equal, the results of head to head meeting

In any play-off match in which there is no result, a super over is used to determine the winner. If the super over is not possible or the result of the over is a tie, the team which finished in the highest league position at the end of the regular season is deemed the winner of the match.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises to submit financial guarantee, by September 25, 2020, for the sixth edition of the event, despite the fact that the fifth edition is yet to be completed.

This process was followed in the first four editions of the league as well but, after insistence from franchises, PCB decided to accept post-dated cheques for the fifth edition. Back then, the team owners were of the opinion that the league is now in a more stable position which is why the PCB should trust them with regards to fulfillment of financial obligations.

It was also decided that in the future, if any franchise fails to fulfill its financial commitments, the PCB will ask for a two-year guarantee instead of one.

Sources also confirmed that at least two franchises were not able to meet their financial obligations, during PSL 5, but it remains to be seen whether PCB will ask them to submit guarantee or post-dates cheques.

It must be noted that PCB has already announced the schedule of the remaining four PSL 2020 matches, which were postponed on March 17 due to Covid-19 pandemic

The four matches will be held in Lahore on November 14, 15 and 17 with only the Qualifier and Eliminator 1 to be a double-header. Eliminator 2 will be played on the following day, while the event will conclude on Tuesday, 17 November.

HBL PSL 2021 local


HBL PSL 2021 local players categories renewed

The Frontier Post
December 24, 2020


LAHORE: The HBL Pakistan Super League 2021 is set to showcase Pakistan’s best talent once again as categories of the players who took part in the HBL PSL 2020 have now been finalised.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who was the Player of the Tournament in the 2020 edition after scoring 473 runs in 12 matches, is joined by Karachi Kings teammates Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir in the Platinum category.

Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan continues in the Platinum category as his teammate Faheem Ashraf moves down to the Diamond category for the HBL PSL 2021.

Peshawar Zalmi trio of Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz have been placed in the Platinum category while fast bowler Hasan Ali moves to the Diamond category.

Multan Sultans captain Shan Masood has moved up to the Diamond category with his impressive performances across HBL PSL 2020 and the National T20 Cup. Shan’s teammates Shahid Afridi and Sohail Tanvir have been placed in the Platinum category.

Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is in the Platinum category while fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain moves up from Gold to Diamond after ending as Quetta’s leading wicket-taker in the HBL PSL 2020 with 15 wickets.

Fakhar Zaman, who ended up as the second highest scorer in the HBL PSL 2020 with 325 runs in 12 matches for Lahore Qalandars, continues in the Platinum category where he is joined by teammates Mohammad Hafeez and Shaheen Shah Afridi, the highest wicket-taker of HBL PSL 2020.
Qalandars pacer Haris Rauf’s meteoric rise continues as the fast bowler moves up from Gold to Diamond. He is the leading wicket-taker in 2020 with 57 scalps at 19.57.

With the category renewal process and pick order finalised, the transfer and retention window is now officially open.

As part of the category renewal process, franchise representatives were required to vote for every player. Teams were not allowed to vote for their own players but submit review requests at the end of this voting stage.

The list was then reviewed by Director, Pakistan Cricket Board, High Performance , Nadeem Khan and GM Commercial PCB, Imran Ahmed Khan, who has been leading player acquisition for HBL PSL since 2017. Factors including national team performances, domestic performances and perceived T20 brand value were considered while finalising local players’ categories.

Director Commercial, PCB Babar Hamid said here on Thursday : “The category renewals for the local players is a key step towards the delivery of the HBL Pakistan Super League 2021.

The renewals were done on the basis of structured and meritorious criteria with an aim of providing fair and equal opportunity to all local players in what is one of the most followed and competitive cricket leagues in the world.

“I am sure that like the previous five seasons we will see top-quality performances from our local players and a lot of young players will get a wonderful opportunity of showcasing their talents and progressing to the international stage by their exposure to a platform like the HBL PSL.”

The category renewals did not apply to those players who were drafted in HBL PSL 2020 Playoffs in November. These players will be part of the overall player pool that will be available for selection at the HBL PSL Player Draft.

Players who have represented Pakistan in any format have been assigned a base category of Gold. U23 players cannot be part of a squad as an Emerging player for more than two years unless they have played three or less matches in those two years.

Teams can now send relegation requests for the players before finalising retentions. After a relegation request is floated, all other teams are given a chance to meet the player’s base category. If no team matches the player’s base category, the player may be relegated to a category below his base category.

The list of players not part of the HBL PSL 2020 will be released separately.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday announced a star-studded list of 25 foreign players who have made themselves available for the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Players part of the 'Platinum' category – foreign stars of the highest pedigree – include the likes of David Miller, Rashid Khan, Chris Gayle, and Dale Steyn.

Last month, the PCB had released players' categories for the sixth edition of the tournament, which is due to be held later this year, announcing that the national team’s captain, Babar Azam, was also in the 'Platinum' category along with Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir.

In a press release issued today, the cricket body said the list of foreign players part of the category also included top-ranked T20I batsman Dawid Malan, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Lynn, Alex Hales, Morne Morkel, Mohammad Nabi, Imran Tahir, Tom Banton, and Chris Jordan, all of whom confirmed their availability for the tournament.

However, some of these players will only be partially available for PSL 2021 due to a "packed international calendar during the February to March window", the PCB said.

After the release of the names of the 25 foreign players in the 'Platinum' category, the six franchises of the PSL will "make key trade and retention decisions" before the player draft scheduled for Jan 10 in Lahore.

Each team is allowed a maximum of eight retentions, according to the PCB.

Giving more details about the players, the PCB said that the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 Player of the Decade Rashid Khan will be one of the major attractions of the draft.

"The Afghanistan leg-spinner has bagged a total of 338 wickets in 244 T20 games besides his staggering T20I numbers of 89 wickets in 48 matches," it said.

South African player Miller, who has yet to play in the PSL, will be one of the most sought after players for the franchises, the press release added. Morkel, Rassie van der Dussen, Tahir, Colin Ingram, and Rilee Rossouw have also been included in the Platinum category.

West Indies' Gayle who represented Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars in earlier editions of the tournament will also be a "major attraction". Other players from West Indies are Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite, Lendl Simmons, and Evin Lewis.

"Besides Malan, England’s Alex Hales who was part of the Kings' winning squad in last year’s edition is also on the list. Moeen Ali, Chris Jordan and Tom Banton are also part of the Platinum roster.

"Spinner Mujeeb-ur-Rehman and all-rounder Mohammad Nabi are the two other Afghanistan players on the list along with Rashid Khan.

"Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera and Isuru Udana also feature on the list.

"Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman and Nepal’s Sandeep Lamichanne who have both played for [Lahore Qalandars] in the past complete the list," the PCB said.

Director Commercial Babar Hamid said the PCB was "delighted to release a star-studded list of players in the Platinum category even though we are dealing with an unprecedented situation due to Covid-19 and player availabilities are also hampered by a packed FTP calendar".

He said the 2021 edition of the PSL would be "another exciting season" since all matches would once again be played in Pakistan.
