One of the most celebrated T20 festivals is going to head back Pakistan in few days and the player drafts for the upcoming edition has been done and dusted on Sunday. Adding the entertainment quotient a bit extra, PCB and PSL officials agreed for the inclusion of one extra franchise in 2018 edition.

Every team looks equally good and has the fire players who can change the game from any mathematically possible equations. One can expect the upcoming edition of PSL can be a cracker of the contest as the officials took all the required measures to bring the quality players in the league.
