English cricketers who will feature in PSL 2024

Complete list of English cricketers who will feature in PSL 9

About 16 English cricketers will compete in the ninth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), featuring some of the greatest players who have performed regularly not just in local events like T20 Blast and The Hundred, but also in T20 leagues throughout the world.

Many of them have appeared often in past editions of the PSL. However, several of the top stars will miss the 2019 edition owing to England’s ongoing Test tour of India, as well as injuries.

Furthermore, not all of those English players will appear in the whole competition, as some of them are scheduled to miss the first few games owing to their obligations with the national team and the ongoing ILT20 in the UAE.

The month-long tournament, which is now regarded as one of the biggest T20 cricket festivals in the world, is set to start on February 17 (tomorrow).

Alex Hales, Jason Roy, David Malan, James Vince, Will Smeed, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Tymal Mills, Dan Lawrence, and Chris Jordan are among the English players who will compete in the PSL this season.

David Wiley, Jordon Cox, Luke Wood, Laurie Evans, Gus Atkinson, James Overton, and Dan Mousley will also be featured in this episode.

Players like Hales, Vince, Malan, Mills, Jordan, and Roy have appeared frequently in previous tournaments.

Peshawar Zalmi has the most English players, with four, followed by Islamabad United, Multan Sultans, and Quetta Gladiators, all of whom have three.

Two English cricketers will play for Karachi Kings. The defending champions, Lahore Qalandars, had only one Englishman on their lineup.

Six of the players are from Surrey CCC, while two are from Somerset CCC. This year’s PSL has one player from each of the following counties: Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Northamptonshire, Sussex, Kent and Hampshire.

Peshawar Zalmi

Four English cricketers will play for Peshawar Zalmi in this year’s PSL.

Zalmi has chosen Tom Kohler-Cadmore for the Diamond division again this year. The player will make his fourth appearance in the PSL. He represented Peshawar Zalmi in 2022 and 2023, as well as the Quetta Gladiators in the 2018 PSL season.

Lancashire’s left-arm pacer Luke Wood was selected in the supplemental category, while Surrey and England’s youthful speed wonder Gus Atkinson was chosen in the replacement draft. After Mark Wood and Jofra Archer, Atkinson is another English speedster who can routinely bowl over 150 kph.

Islamabad United


Three English cricketers will play for Islamabad United in this season’s PSL. Top of the list is dashing opener Alex Hales, who was chosen in the Gold category.

Hales, a T20 World Cup champion from Nottinghamshire CCC, has declared his retirement from international cricket. He played for United in 2018, 2019, and 2021, and for Karachi Kings in 2020.

Last season, he rejoined United and elected to forego England’s March 2023 trip to Bangladesh to play in the PSL. This was his sixth appearance in the league.

Other English players who will play for Islamabad United include Jordan Cox (Kent) and Tymal Mills (Sussex).
Pacer Mills, who was selected in the Diamond category, is also competing for the sixth time in this competition. He has previously played for Quetta Gladiators in 2017 and 2020, Karachi Kings in 2018, Peshawar Zalmi in 2019, and United in 2022.

Jordon Cox, a wicketkeeper-batsman, was once again selected in the Platinum category by Islamabad United this year.

Multan Sultans

The Sultans, who did not recruit a single English cricketer last year, have signed three for this season. Multan Sultans initially selected four English cricketers, but fast bowler Richard Gleason of Lancashire was unable to secure a No Objection Certificate from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) owing to injury rehabilitation.

Dawid Malan, David Willey, and Chris Jordan will also play for the Sultans in the PSL 9 season.

Yorkshire’s Malan, who has been selected in the Diamond category, will compete in the PSL for the sixth time. He formerly played for Peshawar Zalmi in 2016, 2017, and 2019, before joining Islamabad United in 2020.
Sultans selected all-rounder Willey, who was recently chosen to manage Northamptonshire, in the platinum category. Willey, the son of former English test umpire Peter Willey, also appeared for Multan Sultans in the 2022 season.

Surrey’s Jordan, who was selected by the Sultans in the supplementary draft, is another player who has appeared consistently in the PSL. He also played for Peshawar Zalmi in 2017-2019, as well as Karachi Kings in 2020 and 2022.

Quetta Gladiators

The Gladiators have retained intriguing English opener Jason Roy in the Diamond division. Roy, known for his flashy batting style, represented the Quetta Gladiators in the 2018, 2020, 2022, and 2023 competitions, as well as the Lahore Qalandars side in 2017.

Last year, Roy of Surrey CCC broke records by hitting 143 runs off 63 deliveries against Peshawar Zalmi. Roy hammered 20 fours and 5 sixes in a stunning hitting exhibition to record not just his biggest T20 total, but also the highest individual score in PSL history.

Quetta Gladiators has also retained Smeed in the Silver category. Somerset’s Smeed, who made his PSL debut in 2022, will be part of the Gladiators’ team for the third campaign in a row.

Gladiators selected Surrey’s Laurie Evans for the extra division. He retired from the PSL in 2019, after he was selected by the Multan Sultans.

Karachi Kings

The Karachi Kings have once again selected English opener Vince in the Diamond category. He will participate in the PSL for the sixth time. Vince played for Kings in 2016; Multan Sultans in 2019; and Quetta Gladiators in 2022.

The other English cricketer signed by the Karachi Kings is Surrey fast bowler Jamie Overton, who was selected in the additional category.

Lahore Qalandars

Defending champion Lahore Qalandars has recruited one English player for the PSL this year, compared to three last year. Qalandars selected Surrey CCC’s captain Dan Lawrence for the silver division. However, because of his surprising inclusion in the English Test team for the tour of India, he will miss at least the February leg of the PSL. Lawrence was signed by the Quetta Gladiators as a supplemental pick in PSL 7.
