2019 Pakistan Super League (also known as PSL 4 or for sponsorship reasons HBL PSL 2019) was the fourth season of the Pakistan Super League, a franchise Twenty20 cricket league which was established by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in 2015. The tournament took place from 14 February to 17 March 2019.[1]

In the championship game, Quetta Gladiators defeated Peshawar Zalmi by 8 wickets in Karachi to win the title for the first time. Mohammad Hasnain of Quetta was named the Man of the Match of the Final. Shane Watson, also of Quetta, was awarded the Player of the Tournament award and the leading run scorer award with a total of 435 runs in the tournament. Hasan Ali of Peshawar was awarded the leading wicket taker award with a total of 25 wickets.

Background[edit]

On 10 November 2018, PCB terminated franchise agreements with the owner of Multan Sultans, Schön Properties.[2] Ali Khan Tareen is the new owner of the team.[3][4] On 14 November, PCB announced that HBL Pakistan has renewed its partnership with PSL for 3 more years till 2021.[5] On 21 December, Blitz Advertising won the broadcasting rights for 3 years on a bid of US$36 million, which is 358% greater amount than before.[6][7]

Broadcasting partners[edit]

The broadcasting rights of the 4th season of PSL were given to various Sports channels for covering the event in different countries. The broadcasting rights of the season in Pakistan were given to leading sports channels, PTV Sports & Geo Super, whereas in United States and Canada the rights were given to Willow TV. Hum TV was given the rights to broadcast the series in UK & Europe. The OTT rights for Middle-Eastern and North Africa Countries were given to Cricketgateway.[8]

In case of India the broadcasting rights were given to DSports which partnered with Daily Fantasy Site, MyTeam11, to co-present PSL in India.[9][10]

Teams and squads[edit]

Each franchise retained up to 10 players[11] during the trade and retention window that started on 29 September.[12] A squad of 16 players, with 4 supplementary players,[13][14] was then completed in players draft held at Islamabad on 20 November.[15] On 16 December 2018, PSL announced that each team will have additional budget to select 21-member squad.[16] The replacement draft was held on 24 January in Lahore.[17]

Venues[edit]

On 12 June 2018, the franchises and PCB officials in a meeting decided against the idea of having a full PSL fourth edition in Pakistan.[18] The new PCB chairman Ehsan Mani announced on 15 September that tournament will start from 14 February 2019 in UAE, and the last eight games will be held in Pakistan along with the final that will be played on 17 March in Karachi.[1]

For the first time, four PSL matches were played in Abu Dhabi.[19]

Originally, three matches were scheduled to be played in Lahore but due to logistical and operational challenges posed by the delayed opening of Lahore airspace for commercial flights following military tensions between Pakistan and India, the matches were shifted to Karachi.[20] Mani said that PCB has made a critical decision and the "headquarters of Pakistan cricket will be unable to host" 2019 PSL matches.[21]
