PSL Teams – All Franchises

In 2015, PSL kicked off with five teams but later in 2017, it added another team. A total of 6 teams representing six different cities in Pakistan come face to face and compete against one another to win the trophy.

Every team includes batters, bowlers, wicket-keepers, all-rounders, and the coaching staff and squad. Every team plays each other twice, and the top four advance to the Playoffs.

The league operates as a unified company, with each team owned and controlled by investors rather than an association of separately owned teams. The players get ranked according to their skill in the Platinum, Diamond, Gold, and Silver categories. Players from other countries are registered to compete in the top two categories. The league uses a draft system for player recruitment in the PSL teams.

According to a statement by the PCB, bid winners would be granted the rights to a franchise for a term of ten years. Interested parties included the ARY Group, Omar Associates, Arif Habib Group, Haier, and Mobilink and international groups, including Leonine Global Sports and the Qatar Lubricants Company (QALCO).

All five franchises for the league’s first season were sold on December 3, 2015, for a total price of US$93 million, after seven bidders presented formal proposals.

In April 2017, PCB invited bids for the sixth team. The deadline for submission of the financial and technical proposals was 30 May, and as many as 40 national and international parties expressed an interest in buying the sixth franchise.

On 1 June 2017, five regions short-listed by PCB Multan were bought by Schön Properties for a price of US$5.2 million per year, becoming the most expensive team of the PSL.[30] However, on 12 November 2018, its rights were terminated by PCB due to payment issues.
