In the first season of Pakistan Super League, total five tams used to compete here where Islamabad United was announced as the champion. Though, the tournament is the origin of Pakistan but could not place their first edition in their home ground and instead of it, the tournament was staged in United Arab Emirates.
However, here we talk about the possible winner of the upcoming season of PSL which will be the second edition of this tournament. As like before, five teams will take part in this season of PSL as well which will kick off in next 9th February, 2017.
Islamabad United which is the current champion of PSL would get the much advantage in upcoming season due to their enough confidence. Islamabad United played total 11 matches in last season and won highest seven of them. Besides, tsmplug.comhe United has possessed some most experienced T20 players in their team squad which is led by the legendary captain Misbah – ul – Haq. No doubt about the capability of this player. However, they have a number of overseas players in their team squad like Watson, Smith, Russell, Sam Billings and some others and they are considered as the best short form players in the world currently. So, they have the maximum chance to win the next title as well.
However, Karachi Kings which represents Karachi, Pakistan in PSL competition did not pass the last season well but won only two match by playing nine. Though, they had plenty of talented played but lack of playing combination, they suffered. But, they have learned from the past and could make a fearsome team. They team squad could remain unchanged only but a little. They have Gayle, Mahela Jayawardene, Pollard, Sangakkara as the overseas players. So, they could do anything in field which should be counted.
Lahore Qalandars is just the other contender which made just two victory by playing total eight match in last season of PSL and so, they were placed on last. Though, they possessed Bravo, McCullum like batsmen in their team squad which led by McCullum. Still, there is a little chance to win next PSL title by them.
Peshawar Zalmi played the playoff stage in last round but luck was not with them. But, this time, they are much desperate and balanced with their team consists of hard hitter Afridi, Sammy, Shakib Al Hasan, Afghan player Shahzad and some other extraordinary players. They have ability to grab the next title which makes them as one of the favourite team in upcoming season of PSL.
Quetta Gladiators is one of the two finalists in last season of PSL which team is led by national team player Sarfraz Ahmed. This time, Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, David Willey, Rovman Powell, Nabi and two other overseas players will play with the team and it increases the chance of claiming the title by Quetta Gladiators for the first time.
However, by analyzing all the teams performance of all participating teams in second edition of PSL, Islamabad United has the maximum possibilities to win the second title of Pakistan Super League but if any incident will happen, then Peshawar Zalmi or Quetta Gladiators would be their perfect replacement in that case.
However, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board recent news, they are desperate to stage the final match of upcoming PSL 2017 in Lahore, Pakistan. Due to some political contradiction, there was a terrorist attack was held on Sri Lankan team buses in 2009 and since then, no teams want to visit Pakistan still now. So, PCB wants to make a desperate step to bring international cricket into Pakistan by successfully placing the final match of PSL 2017. So, every teams will no that travel Pakistan is completely safe.
