The Pakistan Super League is a professional Twenty20 cricket league contested during February and March of every year by six teams representing six Pakistan cities.
It is the heart and soul of sports for Pakistanis; everybody comes together!
The league was established on 9 September 2015 with five teams and now includes six teams. The league is a single existence where each franchise is owned and dominated by investors. From 2021, The PSL will have an independent window in the ICC Future Tours Programme.
Each team is playing matches in double round-robin format; the highest four teams with the best record fit for the playoffs and ends in the championship game, the PSL Cup Final. The league is originated in the Pakistan Cricket Board service office in Lahore.
Retired Pakistani national team captains Wasim Akram and Rameez Raja signed up to support the PSL and enhanced the excitement by being brand ambassadors of the league for three years.
After numerous years of planning and two earlier failed attempts, the league officially launched on 4 February 2016 in the United Arab Emirates. Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari, adjacent to Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, inaugurated the opening celebration.
The first two seasons combined five teams based on Pakistan’s provinces’ capital cities and the Federal capital.
In its first season, the PSL had a more significant international players percentage. The league utilizes a draft system for player recruitment similar to that used in many North American professional sports leagues instead of the other T20 leagues’ auction system.
The PSL’s official logo was launched on 20 September 2015 in a ceremony in Lahore and was published by 3Di. The ceremony was attended by current and retired cricketers and Pakistani celebrities.
