The history of Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League has been miserable by all means. They have hardly won a handful of matches yet in all the four seasons of the event and would like a serious turn-around of fate in order to be competitive in the tournament as they head into PSL 2020. Even though they have produced a few good players over these past few seasons and the individuals have also represented the Pakistan national side too, they couldn’t really pull up a team effort that could lead them to the victory stand. Are we going to see any major changes in PSL 2020 Lahore Qalandars Squad? Let’s find out.
Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, David Wiese, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Usman Khan Shinwari, Sohail Akhtar, Haris Rauf, Salman Butt, Chris Lynn, Samit Patel, Seekuge Prasanna, Ben Duk, Farzan Raja, Jahid Ali, Mohammad Faizan, Lindl Simmons, Dilbar Hussain.

PSL 2020 Lahore Qalandars Squad
Having replaced a few captains during last year’s PSL, the franchise was lead by the flamboyant left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman during their final stint at the PSL 4. Now, the big question is if they’d continue with that decision or some change is on the cards. To be honest, we do not have any official word yet but we suspect that we’ll have a new face leading the side as we get into the PSL 5.
The news floating around is that the Qalandars have decided to retain Salman Butt for the next season of PSL. The left-handed opener, and the former captain, has been impressive ever since his return to international cricket after the spot-fixing scandal and consequent sentence. How he’ll add to the worth of his franchise in the upcoming season is yet to be seen though.
The Pakistan Super League 2020 draft is scheduled in November this year and the tournament will get underway on 20th of February next year. So, we have a lot of time until then and the management will definitely ponder over the matter before the team finally participates in the tournament.
