PSL 2020 Peshawar Zalmi Squad
There have been lots of changes made to the sides since the inaugural season of Pakistan Super League in 2016. However, teams like Peshawar Zalmi have stuck to their basic squad picks for most part. There have been only a few changes here and there and nothing much changes during the PSL draft every year.
Now, as we look forward to the PSL 5 draft, we expect the similar stuff from the Zalmi management. Yes, the teams have not been announced yet and we expect the retention and trade window to be opened by the end of this month. He PSL 2020 auction is scheduled in November and a lot will be cleared by then about the PSL 2020 Peshawar Zalmi Squad.
We’ll bring you live updates from the PSL 2020 draft too and you just need to stay tuned.
PSL 2019 Peshawar Zalmi Squad
In the run up to the event, let us take some inspiration from the Peshawar Zalmi Squad that took part in the last season of the Pakistan Super League. A few changes were made back then and we can expect a few this time around too. But the major players for the team will likely stay the same.
As we all know, Darren Sammy has been leading the side for last three seasons, he has received immense love and appreciation not only from his management but from the Zalmi fans in general. So, he’s not expected to go anywhere and we might have the same captain for the upcoming PSL season 5 too.
Zalmi’s platinum picks for the last season included Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, and Kieron Pollard. The first two have been with the team since the inaugural season of the tournament while Pollard was signed by them only in the last season. While Wahab is expected to retain his place, we’re a bit in doubt about what decision they’re going to take on Hasan. His performance has seen a serious decline during last year or so and Zalmi might want to ‘loose him free’ this time around.
Malan and Dawson were their major overseas picks and we expect them to carry on with these two players. Kamran Akmal has been with them since the start and we might not see him going anywhere either.
Sohaib Maqsood was picked by Peshawar Zalmi in 2017 but he hasn’t really been able to make any difference to the side’s performances. So, they might be revisiting their decision on his selection this time around.
Nevertheless, there is nothing certain as of now and a lot could happen till we have the finalized picks for the PZ squad after the 2020 PSL draft. Let’s wait and watch how it actually turns up!
