As the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) is all set to begin from the first week of June, the six PSL franchises have marked an end to the HBL PSL 6 player replacement draft picking their preferable players. Amidst the COVID surge in the cricket-loving nation, many foreign players have opted themselves out of the league. On one hand, a few players have to be restricted amidst the flight issues between the countries.
The franchises were allowed to pick over two extra players seeking the attacking health scenarios. The initiative has been taken so if any candidate tests positive, unfortunately, the franchises will have multiple options on back up to choose from.
Here are the picks of the six PSL franchises revealed yet:

Multan Sultans have picked Shimron Hetymer
Quetta Gladiators have picked Zahir Khan

Lahore Qalandars have picked Tim David
