Efforts & Outcomes

The PSL V has helped a lot not only to find the emerging talent but also to scout the players. All the franchises of PSL actively participated in the entire four seasons of HBL PSL. In addition, they are also keen to put some efforts this season also. So, no one has thought of the league which started four years ago will be so successful in the future. It is just because of the consistent efforts and participation of not only PCB but also the Franchises. So let’s not forget the efforts of the Franchises.

Moreover, the most important thing to notice in this season of PSL is that all the matches will be held in Pakistan. The credit goes to of course PCB and also the LEA’s (Law Enforcement Agencies) of Pakistan.
Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi have lifted the PSL trophy once while Islamabad United has lifted the PSL trophy twice.
