The excitement for the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has already started to gain traction with the players’ draft around the corner. Recently, the pick order for the first round of the PSL 5 Player Draft was determined via an interesting method involving the cricket bat and the game “puggam pugaai”.
The final lineup for the first round picks sees defending champions Quetta Gladiators call the first shot followed by Lahore Qalandars, Multan Sultans, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings. Previously, the team that ended last on the points table would get the honors of the first pick in the subsequent season.
“The cricket bat pick order method has become an integral part of Pakistan cricket folklore and is commonly used across the country in hundreds and thousands of tennis and tape-ball cricket matches each day of the week,” the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) mentioned on its website.
