In a meeting held at the National Cricket Academy, it was decided that the Pakistan Super League will increase the player salary cap by USD 25,000.
That will allow the franchises to pick 21 players in their squad, one more than the original cap of 20. And this player will be from Pakistan, which will allow PSL to give opportunities to more players from the ongoing National T20 competition and various talent-hunt programs.
The meeting was attended by Asher Schon (Multan Sultans), Nadeem Omar (Quetta Gladiators) Javed Afridi (Peshawar Zalmi), Atif Rana (Lahore Qalandars), Salman Iqbal (Karachi Kings) and Ali Naqvi (Islamabad United), and was presided by PCB chairman Najam Sethi.
PCB in a relase stated, "The meeting was briefed about ways to streamline talent hunt programs. A detailed plan will be chalked out in consultation with all franchise representatives to further improve the process of scouting new talent.
"Mr. Sethi reiterated Pakistan Super League's stance against corruption and vowed to further strengthen the League's anti-corruption efforts."
