Pakistan Super League is a professional Twenty20 cricket league, which is operated by Pakistan Cricket Board . It is contested between six franchises comprising cricketers from Pakistan and around the world (excluding India). A player who leads the cricket team is known as its captain. Each team usually has one nominated captain, although if that player is not participating in a match another player will deputise for them. The captain of a cricket team typically shoulders more responsibility for results than team captains in other sports.[1]
