PSL 4 List of Retained Players-Players Retained by Each Team

The retention window that begin on 29th September closed on November 13th and we were shocked at some of the choices the teams had made. Each team could retain upto 10 players. While Islamabad and Quetta went with their full quota, Karachi,Peshawar, Lahore and the sixth teams went with 8 apiece. Well, if you don’t know about the 6th Team saga, Schon group failed to deposit 5.2 Million Dollars and hence their contract was terminated by the PCB.  Lets look into each team detail by Detail.

Islamabad United

PSL Champions retained their star batsman Luke Ronchi alongside Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan in the platinum category. Well these were imminent choices: Ronchi was the top batsman the last season and Faheem took the most wickets. Misbah was released after the former retired from all forms of Cricket.

Islamabad have released JP Duminy too. Although this may seem like an insane decision, it has nothing to do with Islamabad. It was Duminy indeed who excused for this PSL on account of National Commitments.

Hard hitting Asif Ali and Hussain Talat were also retained under the Diamond and Silver Category respectively. The two performed brilliantly the last summer for Islamabad-good enough to earn a call up into the National Side. Zafar Gohar,Waqas Maqsood Mohammad Sami and Sahibzada Farhan rack up as others.

Best Retention: Retaining Rumman Raees in Gold category is a steal. The guy is a great prospect for limited overs Cricket as he showed against England in Champions Trophy Semi-final.

Worst Retention: Zafar Gohar. Their is no point in retaining players you ain’t gonna play. Zafar is a great prospect for Pakistan and you are rattling his confidence benching the guy.

Karachi Kings

Well, Karachi indeed made a huge mistake selling Afridi off. Not an Afridi fan but the guy adds much needed fan value. Rumors were rife that Karachi were letting go Babar Azam. Glad that didn’t happen. Karachi,though, did retain their captain,Imad Wasim. Well Karachi haven’t got their priorities straight. Bopara has been Karachi’s star performer ever since, and Ingram is the inform guy. Munro would add a lot of value into the Squad.

Best Retention: Babar Azam is Pakistan’s star but before he was Pakistan’s Star, he was Karachi’s star.

Worst Retention: I would have loved to mention Imad here but Karachi shouldn’t have retained Muhammad Amir in the Platinum category. Simple as it may seem, the guy is over-rated.


Lahore Qalandars 

Well, Qalandars just evaded a blunder in letting go Fakhar Zaman. Would have been inconsiderate of Fakhar Zaman to let go off a team that made him. Well Qalandars did release Bazz,maybe hoping to hop in ABD. Well, that may seem off like the worst decision a side could make but Bazz hasn’t been as prolific as some may assume of him failing as both Batsman and as a Leader. Qalandars also retained their Star performers Shaheen Afridi, Anton Devich, Yasir Shah,Agha Salman and Sohail Akhter. They bagged Rahat Ali and Hassan Khan from Quetta and hence make it to retention list.

Best Retention: Well, I just love Shaheen Shah Afridi. The guy has pace, the grit and the aura to be great.

Worst Retention: Sohail Akhter maybe. I believe the guy is over-hyped. Don’t you think so? Well, can’t we agree to disagree.

Quetta Gladiators

Quetta retained their Captain and Sunil Narine in the Platinum category. Sohai Tanvir,Shane Watson and Muhammad Nawaz were retained in the Diamond one.

Best Retention: Sunil Narine. The question is why would Lahore let go a player who constantly conceded under 6 runs an over, has a knack of picking up wickets and can slog them big? Well, I can’t reason for that. Can you? If you can,literally,fu*k off. We can’t agree to disagree here.

Worst Retention: Why would any team in the World retain Umar Akmal with all his disciplinary tantrums and performance issues?

Peshawar Zalmi 

Pwshawar retained Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali in the Platinum category. Cap has also been retained and so has been Kamran Akmal. Why won’t you retain the most consistent player in your side. Retaining Liam Dawson in Gold category was a steal and so was retaining Umaid Asif.

Best Retention: As I said, retaining Liam Dawson in Gold category is a steal.

Worst Retention: Well, Wahab Riaz hasn’t been consistent over the last few years. Can be a match winner, can lose you a match.

The 6th Team 

Well,we don’t know the owners yet but we do know some of the players and we are fascinated. Shoaib Malik has been retained in Platinum category while Junaid Khan and Muhammad Irfan have been retained in Diamond category.
