In this article, we will give you the names of 8 famous foreign players who do not play in the Pakistan Super League. Why they do not play in PSL will also explain the reason behind this and also what is the role of IPL here – Does IPL pressurize these players or not?
The first big international player who does not go and play in PSL is David Warner.
is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world. David Warner has a principle that he has not played in T20 leagues
all over the world. but when he was banned, he went to play T20 leagues
all over the world but his principle is clear that he only plays in IPL
. And in the Big Bash League(BBL)
if given chance. Because the bilateral series
of Australia is going on during the BBL
, he might not be able to play all the matches in the Big Bash League
. But every year we have seen that he plays every match of IPL
. One reason behind this is money. Every year, the IPL
gives David Warner
12.50 crore to play the IPL
. On the other hand, in 2015 and 2018, PSL people went to the Devid warner that you should play, In PSL, David Warner refused to play PSL
. The reason is money. Maximum PSL
could have given 2 crores rupees to David Warner and he would not play in such a small amount of money. David Warner does not play PSL
due to IPL
The second big foreign player who does not play in PSL is Pat Cummins.
This year we saw Pat Cummins get Rs 15.50 crore in the IPL 2020 auction. Let me tell you that this year Pat Cummins has said that he will not play in the T20 League of his own country ie “Big Bash League“. Money matters to Pat Cummins, the league in which he will get more money will play in that league. This is the reason why he has refused to play in PSL because Pat Cummins is a very famous player and he takes too much money to play in the T20 league.
He takes so much money that he can build his own team in PSL with that money. This is why Pat Cummins does not play in the PSL and the IPL plays a very big role in it. He also does not play in the PSL due to the IPL contract. If PSL gives 15 crores to Pat Cummins, he will play in PSL too. But in PSL, teams are sold for 15 crores.
The third foreign famous player who does not play in Pakistan Super League is Mitchell Starc.
There is no role of IPL in Mitchell Starc because Mitchell Starc is a player who does not come and play IPL despite being sold for 10 crores. Mitchell Starc’s reason for not playing in PSL is that an Australian Cricket Board does not allow him. The Australian Cricket Board has told that you only have to perform in Test cricket and perform in ODI cricket. That is why every year the IPL is called up to Mitchell Starc and is willing to give 10 crore rupees, every year the Mitchell Star does not play IPL. On the other hand, if we talk about PSL, then it is not in the race, because only one team of PSL can hardly sell for a maximum of 20 crores, then they can not even call Mitchell Starc. And the Australian Cricket Board does not even allow him to play.
The fourth foreign famous player who does not play in the Pakistan Super League is Ben Stokes.
Ben Stokes has established himself as a very fast-bowling all-rounder in 2016 2017. IPL has also taken advantage of this but IPL has also given money in return. IPL gave 15 crores in the first season of Ben Stokes to play one season and after that Rajasthan Royals team is still giving 12 crores. This is why Ben Stokes does not play in the other T20 leagues. Ben Stokes declined to play in the PSL for the same reason.
Rashid Khan is the fifth foreign player who does not play in Pakistan Super League.
Rashid Khan plays in T20 leagues all over the world. But he has refused to play PSL, in 2018 he was part of the draft processing of PSL, he also became part of the squad but did not play. Rashid Khan does not play PSL due to IPL and IPL gives him a lot of money in the auction. He also plays in Big Bash League because BBL also gives him a lot of money. On the other hand, the reason why they do not play PSL is that the Afghanistan team does not play much bilateral series.
The Sixth foreign famous player who does not go and play in Pakistan Super League is Steve Smith.
Steve Smith was banned from playing in the IPL. Then he was sold in PSL but due to elbow injury, he was out PSL. But he returned to the IPL again and Rajasthan Royals established him in the team for 12 crores. Now he will not play in PSL after the IPL contract. Steve Smith also does not play in PSL due to money.
The seventh foreign famous player who does not play in Pakistan Super League is Lasith Malinga.
Lasith Malinga is loyal to the IPL, he likes to play in the IPL and has a good loyalty bond with the Mumbai Indians, due to which he does not play in the other T20 leagues. Lasith Malinga was drafted in PSL but he has not played in PSL to date. IPL pays good money to Lasith Malinga as compared to other T20 leagues. This is why Lasith Malinga does not play in PSL.
