All the PSL franchises have picked up their two additional players to boost the supplementary category for the PSL 8. Moreover, the franchises have also selected the players for the vacant spots in their squads.
While the main draft was held in December, the PCB had recently permitted the teams to expand their squads to 20 members each. The two additional players have been included in each team to ensure the smooth running of the tournament in case of injuries or other issues.

Meanwhile, left-handed batter Haris Sohail and right-arm pacer Khurram Shehzad will don the jersey of Peshawar Zalmi. Also, Richard Gleeson has been picked by Peshawar Zalmi as a partial replacement.
Moreover, Multan Sultans have opted to add South African all-rounder Wayne Parnell and Pakistani pacer Amad Butt to their squad for the PSL 8. They have also picked veteran cricketer Kieron Pollard and Izhar-ul-Haq Naveed as their additional members.
