Pakistan Super League 9 Draft & Auction

Pakistan Cricket Board suggested the PSL players draft and auction 2024 model for franchises for season 9 of HBL PSL 2024 will take place on 13 December. The idea is to attract top-ranked players from all over the world with the auction. Here is the suggested idea as follows

  • Retain a Maximum 4 Player
  • Four overseas players should auction
  • Twelve players selected from drafts
  • 1 Million Salary Cap
  • Three local and one overseas should retain
  • The budget for the Auction would be $600k (only for world-class cricketers)

Previously, there were over 425 players available for selection, hailing from more than 32 different nations. The PCB has established the Right to Match Card in preparation for the tournament in 2024. It indicates that both teams will receive one card of this kind, which they can use during the drought to choose a player previously cut from their squad.

The teams can keep no more than eight players on their rosters and make whatever transfers they see necessary.

Thus, the HBL PSL 9 Auction/Draft model is suggested to all franchises for the coming season, PSL Auction 2024 season 9. But franchises will review it and confirm it in a meeting with PCB.
