In 12 days, the eighth Pakistan Super League (PSL) will begin, and anticipation for Pakistan’s top T20 competition is already high. Top T20 players from around the world, including Pakistan and England, who finished as World Cup finalists, will compete in the competition.
Some of the top Pakistani players, including Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, and many others, will compete in the PSL, which is one of the most well-known T20 franchise tournaments in the world. Other international players competing in the tournament include Jason Roy, David Miller, Rashid Khan, Alex Hales, and Wanindu Hasaranga.
Players have been classified into many categories in accordance with PSL criteria, mostly based on their financial worth and level of quality. Some of the players in the platinum category, the highest category, will receive a maximum of $170,000 for taking part in the tournament.
Players in the Platinum category who are available during the entire competition will be eligible to receive the full prize, while those who are just partial will receive a pro-rata share.
The highest-paid PSL 8 players are listed below:
|Babar Azam (Peshawar Zalmi)||Shaheen Afridi (Lahore Qalandars)|
|Mohammad Rizwan (Multan Sultans)||Sam Billings (Lahore Qalandars)|
|Shadab Khan (Islamabad United)||Tymal Mills (Islamabad United)|
Superstars like Wanindu Hasaranga, Rovman Powell, David Miller, Rashid Khan, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Alex Hales won’t receive the full cap because they won’t be available for the entire competition.
Lahore Qalandars, the defending champions, will play Multan Sultans at Multan on February 13 to kick off PSL (2023). The competition’s finale will take place on March 19 in Lahore.
