501 players make it to HBL PSL draft

Pakistan       by Haider Ali Sindhu | Published

While Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans picked their top players in the first round, it was Islamabad United along with Lahore that finished looking menacing, on paper at least, given the depth of their squads. Emerging players will be drafted into the franchises in the sixth and seventh round.

Lahore Qalandars picked Angelo Mathews, Mitchell McClenaghan and Gulraiz Sadar.

The Lahore Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators, Karachi Kings, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and first-time entrant, Multan Sultans, will select their players today (Sunday).

Multan Sultans, the latest entrants, were seeking a spinner who would slot in seamlessly into the XI and given Tahir's recent record, including in the IPL earlier in the year, it was a no-brainer for them, after having snapped up Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard and Kumar Sangakkara as a part of the pre-draft last month.

A total purse of $1.2 million for each team for a maximum of 20 players in the squad.

Islamabad United: Mishabh ul Haq (c), Rumman Raees, Mohammad Sami, Andre Russell, Shadab Khan, Samuel Badree, Iftikhar Ahmed, Amad Butt, Asif Ali, JP Duminy, Luke Ronchi, Faheem Ashraf, Sam Billings, Zafar Gohar, Sahibzada Farhan, Hussain Talat.

Teams will have the option to pick up to four players each in the Supplementary category. Lahore Qalandars: Brendon McCullum (captain), Umar Akmal, Sunil Narine, Fakhar Zaman, Yasir Shah, Cameron Delport, Aamer Yamin, Bilawal Bhatti, Sohail Khan, Chris Lynn, Mustafizur Rehman, Bilal Asif, Raza Hasan, Sohail Akhtar, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Ghulam Mudassar.

Quetta Gladiators have picked pacer Rahat Ali.

The Quetta Gladiators chose Australian master blaster Shane Watson while the champions of PSL season 2 Peshawar Zalmi picked Dwayne Bravo as their Platinum player.

Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators have also signed some good players.

Supplementary Rounds were for those players who were not available for the entire season. They have apparently been offered an additional sum of $10,000 to 20,000 per match if they travel to Pakistan.

Supplementary players: Alex Hales, David Willey, Mohammad Hasan and Mohammad Hasnain.

The meeting was also briefed on ways to streamline the talent hunt programs.
