BBL 12: Rashid Khan & Kieron Pollard have registered their names in the BBL draft for the overseas players for the upcoming edition of the league. Pollard is one among the group of West Indies players to sign up for the draft & will be accompanied by West Indies all-time leading T20 Wicket-taker Dwayne Bravo.
The players who sign up for the Players Draft need to state their availability & it is yet to be confirmed whether Rashid Khan is available for the entire tournament as Afghanistan is slated to play some international series later in January. Rashid Khan left BBL 2021 early due to Afghanistan’s International Commitments ending his stint from the tournament with extra-ordinary figures of 6 for 17 against Brisbane Heat.
Other Afghanistan players such as fellow leg-spinner Qais Ahmad who will also be eligible for retention by Melbourne Stars, have signed up in the overseas draft while New Zealand’s star batter Colin Munro who was an integral part of Perth Scorchers’ title-winning side last season, has also nominated.
Kieron Pollard who has played 598 T20 matches & Bravo who has smashed 596 wickets have previously played in the BBL but failed to turn up for the last season. Both have retired from international cricket so will not be part of the Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
Andre Russell who played five matches for Melbourne Stars last season hasn’t signed up for the latest draft while Plessis was among the first group of players who have signed up for the overseas draft. The draft is slated to be held in mid-August. The players who nominated themselves had to mention the category- Gold, Silver, or Bronze in which they are making themselves available. There is an additional Platinum level where CA will place the biggest names of World Cricket for getting picked.
