The players draft for the 2023 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) took place on Thursday, December 15, in Karachi.
Over 500 players took part in the draft. Teams had to pick from the Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, Emerging and Supplementary categories.
In one of the biggest moves ahead of PSL Draft 2023, Pakistan’s all-format captain and the most successful batter in the history of the tournament, Babar Azam, parted ways with Karachi Kings and joined Peshawar Zalmi.
The Peshawar-based franchise had an average outing in the 2022 edition of PSL, as they could manage to win only six matches out of the ten they played. They finished the league stage at the third position of the points table.
