so many sri lankans for a 5 team tournament.

RE: Pakistan Super League - nuffa - 10-29-2015

^5 teams only? So if it's only 4 foreign players per team, most of them won't get a single match.

The five teams for the first season will represent five major cities of Pakistan:

Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya, former Australian World-Cup winning coach John Buchanan and ex-Indian Test pacer Venkatesh Prasad are the latest signings on the Pakistan Super League (PSL) coach roster, a press release issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) stated here on Wednesday.

“With the addition of a wide variety of coaches, the PSL has managed to attract the best of the best in the business,” said the release.

Jayasuriya, who played 110 Tests, 445 ODIs and 31 T20 Internationals in a long and illustrious career, follows his former team-mate Chaminda Vaas on the PSL coach roster. The Sri Lankan legend — known for his explosive batting in limited-overs cricket — has also served as Sri Lanka chief selector.

Buchanan, the man who successfully coached the 2003 and 2007 World Cup-winning Australia, has also signed up with the PSL. After parting ways with the Australian team, Buchanan worked in the IPL and with New Zealand Cricket.

Bangalore’s Prasad, another PSL coach signing, has in the past worked as bowling coach with Indian team.

“Sport has no barriers and that is what cricket has offered to different leagues globally. I am proud to be involved with the PSL,” said Prasad in a video message after signing up with the PSL.

Other new signings include Australians Dean Jones, Steve Rixon and Simon Helmot, England’s Mick Newell and Ian Pont and South Africa’s David Nosworthy and Dale Benkenstein.

“As promised, we have closely followed up on this key deliverable of ensuring that top coaches are on board the PSL ship. You will see names such as Buchanan and Jayasuriya in this list and, naturally, this means that the PSL is associated with quality,” said Najam Sethi, chairman of the PSL governing council.

All coaches who have signed up on the PSL coach roster will go through a selection process in which franchises will choose their coaching panels.

Top foreign players such as Chris Gayle, Kevin Pietersen, Shane Watson, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, James Anderson and Dwayne Bravo have already signed up on an impressive player roster including top local and foreign names.

The inaugural PSL takes place from Feb 4-24 next year in Dubai and Sharjah, with five teams set to take part.

APP adds: Test captain Alastair Cook plus his team-mates pacer James Anderson and batsman Ian Bell are among the England players who could appear in the PSL.

Bell and Anderson have both signed agreements confirming their appearance in the competition’s draft, while Cook has been in talks with the organisers for some time but has yet to confirm his involvement.

The dates of the tournament will prevent members of England’s white-ball squad taking part in the PSL as they will be required for the South Africa series but several other England-qualified players — including Luke Wright, Monty Panesar, Tim Bresnan, Jade Dernbach, Ravi Bopara and Michael Carberry — are also expected to appear in the draft.

On paper the PSL is shaping up to be decent.

RE: Pakistan Super League - Bada - 12-04-2015

The Pakistan Cricket Board has sold all five Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises for $93 million for a ten-year period. Karachi became the most expensive team with the ARY Group shelling out $26 million to gain ownership. There were seven bidders in the shortlist for the open bidding. Among those to miss out were Pakistan's largest telecom company Mobilink and another popular name Arif Habib Group.

The PSL will be a month-long affair, beginning on February 4 and will feature sides from Pakistan's provincial capitals - Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta and Islamabad. A total of 24 matches are scheduled and although finding stakeholders has taken some time, the PCB has managed to secure the interests of renowned business in Pakistan and even abroad.

The PSL's title sponsorship goes to Habib Bank Limited, while Ten Sports and PTV Sports become the official broadcasters. Global television rights have been given to Tech Front, a UAE-based media rights acquisition company. Sunset and Vine will be in charge of producing the coverage. The broadcast arrangements have been finalised for the next three years.

The top two bidders, ARY Group and Qatar Oil have not had much connection with cricket so far but they will now own the two most popular teams in the country - Karachi and Lahore, sold for $25 million.

Haier Group, a consumer electronics and home appliances company, paid $16 million for Peshawar. The franchise from the capital, Islamabad, went to Leonine Global Sports, which is an entity created specifically for the PSL by a group of Pakistani investors, for $15 million. Omar Associate, a Karachi-based building company, secured Quetta for $11 million.

"I am delighted with these positive developments and this is a major achievement in our PSL journey," Najam Sethi, chairman of the PSL Governing Council, said after the bidding was complete. "The best part is that all team owners are ardent cricket fans and their dedication will make this league a success. HBL's association with PSL is another indication of established brands partnering with the league"

At least 80 percent of the revenue from the broadcast rights will be split equally among the five PSL franchises. The remaining 20 percent will go to the PCB. Similarly at least 50 percent of the revenue from the sponsorship rights will be shared among the franchises and the PCB will utilise the other 50 percent.

The franchises will also have access to 50 percent of the ticket sales at the gate. Interestingly, tournaments like IPL, and BPL give their franchises 100% of the revenue collected at the gate. But for PSL, that chunk is only 50% because PCB is bearing the cost of the venue in UAE with Pakistan forced to play their home games away from home.

Over 100 players and 10 coaches have signed up for the PSL. The final step, which is setting up the draft process, will take place later this month.

Everything you need to know about the PSL

The idea of Pakistan's own T20 league first emerged in 2007, but it was not till eight years later that the project finally materialised
