    We need to change the venue from Dead pitch country I hate the lifeless wickets in UAE
    It is making our players none competitive and bowling is being ruined

    Bowlers have lost ability to move the ball

    Yes I agree, but we don't have much of a choice.
    The only other viable option was Malaysia but weather over there is not very conductive for cricket and not much of a crowd as well.
    So we'll have to just pass this tough time and try bringing cricket back home ultimately, instead of shifting somewhere else.

    PSL trade and retention window now open


    [​IMG]

    LAHORE: Pakistan Super League fans are waiting for the exciting month of cricket as its trade and retention window for this year has now officially commenced.

    Player categories for all those local players who were included in the team rosters for PSL season 3 have now been updated.

    The process of category renewals took place in the presence of cricket representatives from all six teams, said a spokesman for the Pakistan Cricket Board here on Saturday.

    The PSL will go into action from February, next year in the UAE.

    "The list of all such local players who were not involved with any squad during the PSL season 3 will be released separately once finalised by the National Selection Committee," he said.

    He said that each PSL squad of 16 comprises three Platinum, three Diamond, three Gold, five Silver and two Emerging players.

    Teams are allowed to retain a maximum of 10 players going into this year''s draft.

    "As was the case last year, teams reserve the right to float relegation requests for their players before finalising retentions.

    After a relegation request is floated, all other teams will be given a chance to meet the player''s base category.

    If no team matches the player''s base category, the player will be relegated to a category below his base category and retained by the franchise.

    Relegation requests will only be floated after obtaining player consent," he added.

    Umar Akmal leaves Lahore Qalandars in blockbuster PSL trade
    November 03, 2018

    [​IMG]
    Umar Akmal endured a miserable final season for the Qalandars in PSL 3. — File

    Beleaguered batsman Umar Akmal and spin wizard Sunil Narine will be moving from Lahore Qalandars to Quetta Gladiators as part of a blockbuster trade between the two Pakistan Super League (PSL) sides.

    In return, pace bowler Rahat Ali and young left-arm spinner Hassan Khan have moved from Quetta Gladiators to Lahore Qalandars, said a spokesperson of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday.

    “Narine, who played two seasons for the Qalandars in 2017 and 2018, brings a wealth of experience with 299 T20 appearances and 342 wickets across different leagues and tournaments in the world”, he said.

    The spokesperson said Umar Akmal's move to Quetta Gladiators marks a new chapter in the talented batsman's T20 career who will be looking to improve on his performances from last year. Akmal, 28, had an unimpressive run last year but his overall tally of 556 runs at a strike rate of 138 in 20 PSL matches brings more batting depth to the Gladiators.

    “This deal will also see Lahore taking Quetta's first round Platinum pick and Quetta getting Lahore's Silver round pick in the second round”, he added.

    Meanwhile Sameer Rana, COO Lahore Qalandars said “On behalf of the Lahore Qalandars management and fans, we would like to thank Sunil and Umar for their services to the team.

    They added tremendous value to the Qalandars and I wish them well on this next chapter in their PSL careers. We are very excited to welcome Rahat Ali and Hassan Khan to the Qalandars family.

    Rahat showed what he is capable of with the ball in this format with his excellent bowling last year and Hassan has impressed everyone with his determination and calmness on the field.”

    Nadeem Omar, team owner Quetta Gladiators said: “Sunil Narine and Umar Akmal are world class additions to the Gladiators squad ahead of PSL season 4. Sunil Narine is a magician with the ball and one of the best match winners when in T20 cricket.

    "Umar Akmal, too, remains one of the most destructive batsmen in Pakistan and he will add much needed firepower to our batting. I would also like to thank Hassan Khan and Rahat Ali for being exemplary ambassadors for Quetta Gladiators. Both these talented cricketers will always have a special place in the Gladiators family. “

    either the complete league should be held in UAE or in pak. it is a joke that some matches will be played in pak. many foreign cricketers refuse to come to pak at the last moment and their teams suffer and those matches just look like quaid e azam trophy matches.

    its time international teams start visiting pakistan, india should lead the way visiting first.
    alas, politics will come in between.
    pakistan could regain its past glory if it plays in front of its budding potential cricketers. all these huge potential going down the drain.

    PCB terminates PSL franchise rights of Multan Sultans


    [​IMG]

    LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has terminated the franchise agreement with Schon Properties Broker LLC which granted franchise rights of the Multan Sultans PSL team. As a result of this termination, all rights in respect of the team have now reverted back to PCB.

    The termination was brought about due to the former franchisee’s inability to meet its financial obligations under the Agreement.PCB confirms that the fourth edition of PSL will go ahead as planned with six teams and the same number of matches.

    The Board shall take complete responsibility of all player and coach contracts. Pending further updates, the team shall be referred to as “The Sixth Team” of PSL.

    The team selection for the Sixth Team at the Player Draft scheduled to be held on 20th November 2018 will be done by PCB itself.PCB will thereafter enter into a public tender process— details will be made public soon — to grant repackaged rights of the Sixth Team.

    The rights holder would have the option of choosing the sixth franchise city and name.PCB acknowledges that Schon Group is one of the leading groups of Pakistan.

    Schon Group has been a partner of PCB for many years in terms of Pakistan Series Sponsorship abroad for many years.

    PCB appreciates that Schon Group was the only bidder to meet the Reserve Price ($5.2 million per annum) PCB had set for the sale of the Multan Franchise. This was double the amount for which PCB had in 2015 sold the most valuable PSL Franchise Team.

    Asher Schon in particular has worked hard in building the Multan Sultans brand.

    Asher Schon stated “It has been a privilege being a PSL team owner over the past year. I am proud of the support Schon has always extended to Pakistan cricket and current affairs notwithstanding, will continue to passionately support it”.

    “While this is an unfortunate turn of events, we have to ensure strict adherence to contractual obligations for the well-being of Pakistan Super League. We wish Schon Group well with their future endeavours,” said Mr. Ehsan Mani, Chairman PCB.

    “I want to reassure our partners – franchisees, sponsors, players, coaches and fans – that the Pakistan Super League will take place as planned. Our preparations are in full swing starting with the PSL Draft in Islamabad. The 2019 edition of the PSL will be a memorable one with as many as eight matches including the play-offs and the final scheduled to take place in Pakistan.”

    PSL season four begins in the UAE with a glittering opening ceremony followed by the opening game on February 14, 2019.
