PSL 6 Player replacement draft: Which franchise is at advantage?

As the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) is down and dusted with the player replacement draft, the six franchises have chosen the foreign players from the available list of minimum.

Reportedly, as many as 130 foreigners were available for the six franchises to select from. As many international cricketers departed themselves from the T20 league due to the COVID, the franchises suffer massive blows.

No player from England is available so the six teams continued to choose limited players from Australia, Bangladesh, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, West Indies, and New Zealand.

Notably, the draft took place virtually with the stakeholders of all the franchises. Continuing to the order, the following players were available:

Platinum: Evin Lewis, Andre Russell, Shakib Al Hasan, Martin Guptill

Diamond: Usman Khwaja, James Faulkner, Adam Milne, Morne Morkel, Tamim Iqbal

Gold: Keemo Paul, Niroshan Dickwella, Dinesh Chandimal

Silver: Jake Weatherald, Jonathans Wells, Hazratullah Zazai, George Worker, Wesley Medhevere, Sean Williams, Taskin Ahmed, Liton Das, Shabbir Ahmed, Nuwan Pradeep, Sekugge Prasanna, Johnson Charles, Kessrick Williams, Sissanda Magala, Shimron Hetmyer, Corey Anderson, Janneman Malan

Considering the availability, here are the squads for all the six franchises:

Islamabad United:

Quetta Gladiators:

Lahore Qalandars:

Multan Sultans:

Peshawar Zalmi:

Karachi Kings:

Seeing the complete squads of the six teams, we see that Karachi Kings are at advantage so far. Having the likes of Najibullah Zardan, Martin Guptill, Liton Das, and Thisara Parera, the squad will be destructive with extra local talent.
