The Schedule

As evident – HBL has signed on as the lead sponsor for PSL.

Composition of the Teams

What’s admirable about the entire endeavor is the promotion of real-life deserving cricket zealots. Through the composition criteria for teams, people with talent are picked up, brought forward and given a chance to achieve their dreams.

Each franchise is required to pick people from six categories, namely; Platinum (Salary range: $140,000 to $230,000), Diamond (Salary range: $75,000 to $80,000), Gold (Salary range: $50,000 to $60,000), Emerging (Salary range: $10,000 to $12,000) and Supplementary.

PSL is literally turning people’s’ dreams into reality!

Aim of PSL

PSL while fueling the cricket fever is also playing the vital role of uplifting the image of our beloved country worldwide. The main objective is to restore the perception of Pakistan through promotion of sports and unleash the real aesthetic image of Pakistan!
