On December 15 2022 in Karachi, the PSL player selection for the 2023 edition took place. With above 500 players taking part in the drafting. The Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, Emerging, and Additional divisions must be selected by the clubs.
Franchises used the option to pair cards wisely as well. Quetta Gladiators used the RTM to take Naseem Shah back from Multan Sultans. Abrar Ahmed will represent Islamabad United after taking 11 wickets in his Test debut over England.
The PSL will feature several well-known players, including Moeen Ali, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Rovman Powell, and Sikandar Raza.
Wahab Riaz has been substituted as Peshawar Zalmi’s captain by Babar Azam, who will play for the team. Imad Wasim has become the captain of the Karachi Kings after Babar transferred to Zalmi, where he helped the team win in 2020.
Meanwhile, none of the six squads included players like Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, or Ahmed Shehzad.
