Pakistan Super League is going to enter its 4th edition on 14 February 2019 only a week ahead. Lahore Qalandars is the second most expensive cricket franchise. It came into existence in 2015 with the formation of PSL by Pakistan Cricket Board. Qatar Lubricants Company Limited (QALCO) owns it, and the home ground of Lahore Qalandars is Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. It represents Lahore in PSL tournaments. Fawad Rana is the owner of Lahore Qalandars cricket franchise.
In 2016, Lahore Qalandars cricket franchise organized a trial program “Jazz Rising Stars” to identify the youth talent. The trials had been organized in 8 cities of Pakistan. The selected youth talent will move to Australia to get training with the professional Australian Cricket Team Sydney Thunder. However, the best two young players will have an opportunity to play PSL from Lahore Qalandars. It is a highly beneficial program to identify the young talent in Pakistanis. During the trial sessions, an enthusiastic fast bowler Yasir Jan was selected from Rawalpindi.
Lahore Qalandars squad has been finalized to compete for the PSL tournaments. Lahore Qalandars have selected Hardus Viljoen and David Wiese. It is to replace AB de Villiers, Corey Anderson, and Carlos Brathwaite as they are not fully available. Their availability for PSL is partial only for group matches.
