Players to Lookout For

Quetta Gladiators:
Mohammad Nawaz is probably one of the smartest bowlers in PSL seasons over the years. His all-round abilities have been a key to his team’s success. 

Peshawar Zalmi:
Liam Livingstone was a hugely successful pick for Karachi Kings last year as he scored at over 32 runs a match with 3 half-centuries. He was, however, released from the squad and he proved in his first match for Zalmi that he is an asset to have in the team.
