Pakistan Super League

A Twenty20 league, following a model similar to the IPL and Big Bash, has been in the works since 2013 but the Pakistan Cricket Board has had to postpone it twice — in 2014 and 2015 — over what it said was lack of response from sponsors and logistics issues.But a team dedicated solely to the PSL project and headed by PCB Executive Committee chief, Najam Sethi, says there is now a strong commercial interest in the tournament and foreign players are lining up to sign up for it. In an interview with Dawn, Sethi reveals how his team has overcome hurdles, engaged international superstars and the PCB plans to transform domestic cricket with the help of PSL.[1] But a team dedicated solely – to the PSL

Criteria

Pakistan super league Quetta Gladiators

The league follows the rules and regulations dictated by the International Cricket Council. In the group stage, two points are awarded for a win, one for a no-result and none for a loss. In the event of tied scores after both teams have faced their quota of overs, a super over is used to determine the match winner. In the group stage teams are ranked on the following criteria:

  • Higher number of points
  • If equal, better run rate
  • If equal, highest number of wins
  • If equal, least number of losses
  • If still equal, the results of head to head meeting

In any play-off match in which there is no result, a super over is used to determine the winner. If the super over is not possible or the result of the over is a tie, the team which finished in the highest league position at the end of the regular season is deemed the winner of the match.
