2. The PSL 2020 trophy will be the one to stick to

5 newcomers who can use the tournament as a platform for the Pakistan team for the T20 World Cup

The fifth edition of the Pakistani Super League (PSL) is scheduled to begin on Thursday, February 20th. The first match of the T20 Championship will be played between the gladiators of Quetta and Islamabad United at the National Stadium in Karachi.

In fact, this season the entire PSL will be held in Pakistan, unlike previous times, when the United Arab Emirates (UAE) also hosted. Meanwhile, it is also a chance for a number of Pakistani players to establish their place in the national team.

The T20 World Cup in Australia is scheduled to be played later this October. Therefore, a number of players, especially a few newcomers, would like to impress. Pakistan has lost a lot of matches in the last year and has therefore resorted to frequent squabbles.

 Five newcomers to Pakistan who can use PSL as a platform:

1. Naseem Shah- Quetta Gladiators

Naseem Shah, the 17-year-old fast bowling sensor, has been doing well for the Pakistani team lately. At age 16, he wore the national colors of Australia, bowling as Steve Smith and  David Warner  .

Even if he didn’t taste very successful in his first three tests, during the opening game against Bangladesh in Rawalpindi, the step came in his place. He received a figure, including a hat-trick in the second inning. The fact that he lost his mother a few months ago makes his journey even more incredible.

Shah still does not play cricket with limited staff for Pakistan. In the PSL, he will play for the Quetta gladiators under Sarfaraz Ahmed. A decent stay can also help him penetrate colorful cricket in Pakistan.
