Finally, the PCB has announced the date and venue for the PSL 2021 draft. The event will be held in Lahore this time around and will go live on Sunday, January 10, 2021.
Earlier, there were rumors that the event will be held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic but, as it turns out, the PCB will be hosting under 300 guests to make the event happen at a physical venue.
The PCB has also announced the foreign player categories for the event with some top names placed in the Platinum category. The retention and trade window is currently open with the franchises allowed to make changes to their existing squad by releasing players they don’t want in their squad or wish to re-pick in the draft.
The PSL 2021 has been restricted to only two venues i.e. Karachi and Lahore while there will be no crowds allowed at the stadiums during the event. The event is set to begin from February 20.
