2016 Edition:

In first edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2016, Lahore Qalandars key players were Chris Gayle, Umar Akmal, Dwayne Bravo, Azhar Ali & Yasir Shah. Azhar Ali was the captain of the side. Team ended at last position at the points table. It played 8 T20 matches in 2016 edition and only win two of them.

2017 Edition:

In second edition of PSL 2017, Chris Gayle was traded against Sohail Tanvir and Sohaib Maqsood was traded against Aamer Yamin.  Dwayne Bravo & Anton Devcich was replaced against Jason Roy & James Franklin. Shaun Tait was replaced against Chris Green. In 2017 edition Brandon McCullum was signed as captain of the side. In spite of these changes Lahore Qalandars team cannot perform well and repeat its previous performance. It played 8 matches in 2017 (2nd edition of PSL) but only can win three out of it.
