Top Players Balochistan:

  1. Yasir Shah- Captain Yasir Shah carries a rich cricketing experience along with him. He can prove to be very dangerous in the middle overs period because of his knack of picking up wickets regularly.
  1. Bismillah Khan- Bismillah Khan is a very skilled batter for Balochistan who will also keep wickets for them in 2022 season. He carries a good strike rate and scored 362 runs in the last edition at an average of 36.20.

 

Top Players Khyber Pakhtunkhwa:

  1. Iftikhar Ahmed- Iftikhar could not enjoy a great PSL but the memories of his heroics in the Pakistan National T20 Cup are still afresh among the fans. In the last edition of Pakistan Cup, he made 365 runs at an average of 40.55.
  1. Asif Afridi- Asif Afridi was the hero for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the last edition of the Pakistan Cup 2022. He picked up 25 wickets at an average of 22.72.

 

Top Players Central Punjab:

  1. Usman Qadir- Qadir picked up 17 wickets in 8 matches at an impressive average of 26.17. He bowled economically and did very well to keep the batters quiet in the middle overs.
  1.  Qasim Akram- After a splendid run at the ICC U-19 World Cup 2022, Qasim Akram left the fans happy with his stellar performances with the bat in HBL PSL. He will prove to be a very handy all-rounder option for Central Punjab to use.

 

Top Players Southern Punjab:

  1. Tayyab Tahir- Having played for Central Punjab in the last edition of the Pakistan Cup, Tahir has joined the Southern Punjab camp for this year’s edition. He amassed 666 runs at an average of 60 in the last edition and will be raring to go in the 2022’s edition as well. 
  1. Khushdil Shah- He was in tremendous form in the recently concluded HBL PSL. Shah showed his class with the ball in hand in PSL and will be expected to deliver in both departments in the upcoming Pakistan Cup 2022.

 

Top Players Sindh:

  1. Mohammad Umar- He picked up 15 wickets in just 7 matches played in the last edition of Pakistan Cup. Umar will be raring to go in the upcoming tournament and will play a key role in Sindh’s performances and advances.
  1. Khurram Manzoor- He made 655 runs in the last edition of Pakistan Cup at an astonishing average of 72.77. He will play a key role in the fortunes of Sindh in the upcoming tournament.

 

Top Players Northern:

  1. Shadab Khan- The skipper played with immense heart and will at the HBL PSL that concluded recently. However, despite his terrific performances, his team could not qualify for the Finals. Shadab Khan will look to make up for that missed chance in the upcoming Pakistan Cup 2022.
