Ramiz Raja is likely to introduce ‘IPL style auctions for the PSL new season, instead of the draft system. The PSL, which is now six years old has adopted a recruitment policy. Here is the auction date and time and auction detail update 2023.

Ramiz Raja wants franchisees to have the option of picking players for longer-term contracts with higher pay like in the IPL, while the franchises are in favor of the idea, he said during a meeting this weekend. Ramiz reportedly proposed innovative and ambitious ideas to franchises during general discussions. However, the league’s financial model remains the biggest obstacle.

In the IPL, the original eight franchises paid fees for ten years, after which they did not pay an annual fee. In the Caribbean Premier League, franchise rights are granted for 25 years. PSL franchises, however, have a 10-year contract. Every year, they pay for broadcast production, while the PCB covers the ground and matches the official’s costs.

The list was reviewed by Director GM Commercial Imran Ahmed Khan and High-Performance Nadeem Khan. Both are PSL’s major player acquisitions for PSL since 2017.

PSL draft crickety Factors including national team performances perceived T20 brand value, and domestic performances were considered finalizing local players’ categories.
As part of the PSL category renewal method, PSL franchise representatives were needed to vote for every player. Teams were not authorized to vote for their own players. Submit review requests at the end of this voting stage.

With the PSL category renewal method and pick order finalized, the transfer and retention window is now officially open.
