With Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 Eliminators set to begin from today, names of foreign players who will feature in the finals in Pakistan have been confirmed.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Najam Sethi, on Monday, confirmed names of all the players who have traveled to Pakistan to play for their respective teams.

Here is the list of players who have either arrived or are expected to arrive in Pakistan:

Peshawar Zalmi:

  • Darren Sammy
  • Andre Fletcher
  • Chris Jordan
  • Liam Dawson
  • Rikki Wessels
  • Tamim Iqbal

Karachi Kings:

  • Lendl Simmons
  • Colin Ingram
  • Joe Denly
  • David Wiese
  • Tymal Mills
  • Ravi Bopara

Quetta Gladiators:

  • Rilee Roussow
  • Chris Green
  • Tom Kohler-Cadmore
  • Muhamudullah
  • Thisara Perera
  • Johnson Charles

Islamabad United:

  • Luke Ronchi
  • JP Duminy
  • Samit Patel
  • Chadwick Walton
  • Samuel Badree
  • Steven Finn

It is worth mentioning that as reported by ProPakistani last week, some English players have not agreed to travel to Pakistan as per English Cricket Board’s (ECB) recommendations.

Speaking about the matter, Sarfraz Ahmed said that all the players which have refused to travel to Pakistan should not be included in the next PSL drafts.

Similar to last year, Quetta Gladiators now face the dilemma of playing a weakened team since Jason Roy, Kevin Pietersen, Shane Watson and Ben Laughlin have refused to travel to Pakistan.

Talking to a press conference, Sarfraz said:

I think the players should give importance to Pakistan when they accept huge contract offers.

The Pakistani skipper expressed his hope that the local talent can fill in the shoes of these players and help Quetta reach the final.
