The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Friday allowed Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises to induct two more players each into their squads for the tournament's seventh edition, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The PCB has allowed franchisees to pick one international player and one domestic player more allowing them to move the cap up from 18 to 20 players.
The franchises will not be allowed to induct two foreign players. The selection of the additional players will be done next month, just days before the league begins — on January 27. The PSL draft took place last week.
The decision was taken after the PSL franchises had requested the PCB to increase the team players, given the uncertainty due to the current coronavirus situation.
The PCB also aims to increase the importance of domestic players through the decision.
