  • Tillakaratne Dilshan (Sri Lanka)

Each team contains 5 foreign players in their team and 10 Pakistani players as well. The mentioned below players are the official team squad of Lahore Team squad for Pakistan Super League 2016.

Malik was the skipper in the first season but he opted out for the second part of the tournament and Ravi Bopara was brought in as the skipper. Now Sangakkara takes over the role from Malik and Bopara.

His international teammates Sohail Tanvir, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir also find a place in the side. Tanvir is a useful bowler to have who can swing the ball both ways while Amir can prove to be a very important recruit. The left-handed fast bowler has made a steady comeback after serving a 5-year ban from the sport and is in the frame to restore his reputation as one of the finest bowlers in Pakistan.

Karachi have also made some important additions when it comes to foreign players with Chris Gayle their most high-profile player. He has been phenomenal in the Indian Premier League and the other leagues in the world and Lahore’s loss will be Karachi’s gain and will be a key player with both bat and ball for the Kings.

They have also acquired Ravi Bopara and Mahela Jaywardene for the side with Imad Wasim making a key presence in the side from Pakistan. Bopara was the man of the tournament last season while Jayawardene now features only in T20 leagues around the world. On the other hand, Wasim is one of the biggest upcoming stars in this format of the game.
