The 5th edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to be a grand affair with many more foreign cricketers showing their interest in the league. The PSL 2020 Draft for 5th edition of the tournament will be held on December 6 and 7 and the order of play as far as the Draft picks has been decided.
Quetta Gladiators, arguably one of the more consistent teams in the PSL, will get the chance to pick up a player first in the opening round of the PSL Draft, followed by Lahore Qalandars.
The order for the remaining four teams picking up the players is Multan Sultans, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings. Please note this is the Draft pick order for the first round only. More details on the rest of the order of play are still awaited.
What’s interesting is that the PSL Draft order was decided on the basis of a popular method of deciding the order in single wicket tournaments across the country.
The next edition of the PSL will be held from February 20 and will go on till March 22 when the final will be played. The schedule is yet to be released but it has been said the entire PSL will be played in Pakistan. As far as the overseas cricketers are concerned, AB de Villiers has opted out of the league to manage workload. HBL Player draft 2019 players list is placed below.

This year will be no different though and Ten Sports and PTV Sports channels are set to broadcast the PSL draft live on the aforementioned date. The HBL Pakistan Super League player draft will be broadcast online on YouTube and we will live blog the draft event on this page.
