PSL 2022 Preview: All you need to know about Lancs' involvement

PSL 2022 Preview: All you need to know about Lancs' involvement

Lancashire Cricket’s Liam Livingstone, Luke Wood, Saqib Mahmood, Matthew Parkinson and Phil Salt are all set to feature in the 2022 Pakistan Super League (PSL).

2022 Pakistan Super League will be the seventh edition of the franchise tournament. 

Livingstone, Mahmood and Parkinson will all represent Peshawar Zalmi while Phil Salt will play for the Lahore Qalandars and Luke Wood the Quetta Gladiators. 

Below, we have previewed each team ahead of the tournament which runs from 27 January to 27 February as well as listing all of the fixtures that will see Lancashire players go head-to-head out in Pakistan.

Peshawar Zalmi

Livingstone and Mahmood will join up with the Peshawar Zalmi following England’s five match IT20 tour out in the West Indies. Meanwhile, leg-spinner Parkinson has been drafted in as a replacement until the England squad members arrive and fulfil their quarantine requirements.

Both Livingstone and Mahmood have previously played out in the PSL. Livingstone spent the 2019 campaign at Karachi Kings then transferred over to Peshawar in 2020 while Mahmood also represented Peshawar in 2020.

Peshawar is a region in northern Pakistan and are captained by Pakistan’s left arm quick Wahab Riaz.

They reached the final of the 2021 tournament losing to Multan Sultans. Joining Livingstone, Mahmood and Parkinson in the squad are Gloucestershire’s Ian Cockbain, Yorkshire’s Tom Kohler Cadmore and Worcestershire’s Pat Brown.

They begin the tournament on the Friday 28 January against the Quetta Gladiators in Karachi starting at 14:00 GMT.

Lahore Qalandars

Lancashire’s new signing Phil Salt has signed for Lahore Qalandars, who he also represented back in 2018.

The opening batsman has since spent the last three PSL seasons with Islamabad United and will join up with the squad once he's finished England duty in the West Indies.

Salt played 10 games for Islamabad over three years, two affected by COVID, delaying the tournament and meaning that he couldn’t return due to county and international commitments. He scored 141 in 10 innings with a highest score of 46.

The Qalandars are captained by Pakistan’s opening bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi and Salt will play alongside compatriots in Yorkshire’s Harry Brook and Nottinghamshire’s Samit Patel.

While the Qalandars have a depth of international talent including Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan and Pakistan’s Haris Rauf, Fakar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez.

In the 2021 edition, Lahore did not qualify for the finals. They begin their 2022 campaign against Multan Sultans on Friday 28 January.

Quetta Gladiators

Left-arm quick Luke Wood has signed for the Quetta Gladiators for the 2022 Pakistan Super League. Wood's arrival to the tournament has been delayed meaning that he will at least miss the Gladiators opening game.

After a successful T10 campaign out in Abu Dhabi, Wood has earned himself a spot to play for the Gladiators. He will be joined by England internationals Jason Roy, James Vince and Ben Duckett as well as playing alongside former Lancashire all-rounder James Faulkner.

Quetta finished bottom of the table in the 2021 tournament and begin the tournament against Quetta Gladiators which could see Wood come up against Lancashire teammate Matthew Parkinson.

Sarfaraz Ahmed will captain the Gladiators and have a strong bowling attack with young fast bowlers Naseem Shah and Mohammed Hasnain.
