On December 15, 2024, the PSL 9 Draft 2024 will take place. Six teams—Lahore Qalandars, Islamabad United, Quetta Gladiators, Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, and Multan Sultans—will choose players from different categories, such as Platinum, Gold, Silver, Diamond, and Emerging players. Karachi is where the event will take place.

PCB says that there will be a lot of international players, managers, and coaches in the Pakistan Super League 9 Draft.

The HBL Pakistan Super League will have a lot of players from both Pakistan and other countries. PCB has already announced the order of picks for the Draft, and Lahore Qalandars will pick first in the platinum category. Most of the players, like Kamran Akmal and Muhammad Hafeez, are leaving their teams to play for other teams this year.

How PSL Draft Works?

In the PSL Draft, teams choose players from five different groups to fill out their 18-person teams. Each team has a specific pick order, which is decided by a random draw by the PCB. There is a list of players from each category, and the franchise chooses a player from that list. In that category, the price for each player is the same.
