The 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is less than 24 hours away. The wait for some T20 action will finally be over when Lahore Qalandars face Islamabad United in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. The remaining 20 matches of the PSL 2021 will be held in UAE at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Earlier in May, due to the unavailability of several overseas players, the authorities had allowed all the six franchises to add two new players to their squad to make it a 20-member squad.
The franchises picked a total of 12 players in the drafts. Notably, teams including Islamabad United, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings went ahead with a 19-member squad.
So, ahead of the start of the tournament, we bring you the updated and revised squad of all six franchises.
