Aleem Dar and Joel Wilson head a list of seven umpires and two match referees for the Pakistan Super League 2016 (PSL).
Worries had been expressed that Pakistani umpires would be ignored by the PSK, but leading Pakistani umpires Ahsan Raza, Shozab Raza, Ahmad Shahab, Rashid Riaz and Khalid Mehmood are also included on the match officials panel.
The match referees will be former Sri Lankan cricketer and ICC referee Roshan Mahanama and Pakistani Muhammad Anees.
The inaugural tournament gets underway on 4 February.
The opening game between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators will be proceeded by the tournament’s opening ceremony at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
