Governing Council of PSL Meeting

There was a meeting of the Governing Council of the HBL Pakistan Super League 0n 02 September 2022 at the National High-Performance Centre in Lahore. All six franchises of the HBL PSL attended, along with PCB officials who are members of the Governing Council.

There has been some discussion regarding the next edition of the HBL Premier League. It was decided that the HBL PSL 8 will occur between 9 February and 19 March 2023. 

The matches will be played in at least four venues, including Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Multan. The franchises and the PCB will continue to discuss the schedule details in due course to finalize the schedule.

PSL 8 Draft

It is anticipated that the first announcement will be either the pick order in the upcoming draft or the categories of local players that will be renewed. The pick order is largely a matter of luck. 

There is a random draw or other similar activity to determine the pick order for the first round of the draft (the first Platinum picks), and a ‘special statistical tool’ is used to determine the pick order for the remaining 17 rounds.  

Additionally, the categories of local players from the previous season have been renewed. A vote is conducted to renew the contract. Each franchisee’s representative votes for each category of local players, except for the local players for their franchises. 

The new categories will be reviewed by several PCB officials and then finalized. At this point, teams may begin to consider possible trades and retentions. The draft list will be released soon after.
