The fourth edition of PSL will commence from February 14th, 2019 in the UAE. The league will move to Pakistan for the last eight matches, with the final set to be held in Karachi on March 17th.
Pakistan Super League (PSL) fans are in for a very exciting month as the trade and retention window for this year has now officially commenced.
Player categories for all those local players who were included in 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.
The list of all such local players who were not involved with any squad during PSL season 3 shall be released separately once finalised by the National Selection Committee.
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.
