List of Prominent Local Players Not Picked by Any Franchise for PSL 2019

Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 begins on February 14 and the Pakistani cricket fraternity is making sure they are up to date with the latest happenings and events.

ProPakistani has prepared a list of local players who could have made their way to the PSL franchises.

Let’s have a look.

Fawad Alam

Fawad Alam is a deserving player to play the league looking at his massive numbers in the domestic cricket. PSL 2019 could have been a stepping stone for him to return into the national squad.

Abdul Razzaq

Yes, you heard it right. The veteran all-rounder, Abdul Razzaq would have been a spicy addition to the league, if he was picked as a player. The all-rounder made a comeback to the domestic circuit and won his team, PTV Sports, several matches with his late order hitting and bowling performances.

Salman Butt

People might argue over his role in the spot-fixing scandal, however, Salman Butt has served the punishment and has the numbers to justify his place in the premier T20 league.

Mohammad Asif

Another one of the disgraced names from the Lords spot-fixing scandal, Mohammad Asif has been taking wickets with ease in all formats after serving his ban.

Imran Nazir

A long-forgotten hard-hitting batsman, Imran Nazir might have added flavor to the already hyped PSL.

Sadaf Hussain

A Fawad Alam-esque player, who has made a habit of performing consistently with the ball despite being overlooked again and again.

Khurram Manzoor

The leading run-scorer in the latest edition of National T20 Cup, Khurram Manzoor, despite personal likes or dislikes, is a player who could have been added to one of the squads.

Nauman Anwar

Another aggressive opening batsman, who lost his flair due to some reasons despite playing a solitary T20I for Pakistan.

Mukhtar Ahmed

A hard-hitter in the true sense of the word, Mukhtar Ahmed boasts an average of 32 in 6 T20Is with a career-best of 83.

Via Business Recorder

Bismillah Khan

A local from Balochistan, Bismillah Khan smacked a fifty in his PSL debut for Quetta Gladiators.

Via Gulf News

Raffatullah Mohmand

Another aggressive opener from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Raffatullah Mohmand debuted for Pakistan at the age of 38. Too old perhaps?

  • We Need to Support Our Rest Players :
    At Least They Must Be Played International League Like PSL , CPL, Big Bash, Etc

    PCB & MD Wasim Khan Should do Something.

  • Sab he almost tried and tested players hain.
    Khair hai jo match fixers ko na khilaya. They knew what they were putting on line.
    Baqi Khurram Manzoor/Fawad Alam/Rafatullah etc k baghair bhi PSL chal jae gi. Their time’s up anyway. Domestic khailain aur maal banaen. PSL isn’t everything.

    • Mohammad Asif Should Back in PSL : He Was Great Bowler (As Compare to Amir)
      We wanna to see him bowling length line wicket on live at international league.

      • We’re not interested in seeing a match fixer become a part of PSL and malign its reputation as well.
        He had his chance and he blew it. Past se niklo aur aaj ki baat karo.
        I do not see Fawad Alam doing that good in T20 just because he has been scoring runs in domestic circuit.

  • Asif ko zrur wapis aana chahiye tha, us ne ghalti zrur ki but saza zayada mili usy. 200% sure k us jesa bowler ni hai dunya mein, agar scandal mein na atakta to boht se record break kr chuka hota..
