The fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will once again include the highest quality of Pakistan cricket talent as the new categories of local players, who were present in PSL 4, have been finalized. The players have been allocated into five categories in total – Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver and Emerging.
Shaheen Afridi, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nawaz and Sohail Tanvir have graduated to the most lucrative level as they will acquire Platinum contracts with their respective franchises in the upcoming season.
They have been rewarded for their fantastic performances in the previous season while Shaheen has gone on to become one of the most exciting pacers on the international stage.
“As part of the category renewal process, one representative from each of the six franchises voted for local player categories. Franchise representatives were not allowed to vote for their own players. Teams had a right to submit review requests at the end of this process,” the PCB said in a press release.
