PSL’s promotional drive is in full swing now. Some players had dropped out for varying reason, so a replacement draft was held, at the PCB headquarter. Teams were given an opportunity to replace international players. Earlier, teams had already added 1 local player to their squads.
In the replacement draft, Karachi Kings were very active as they had 3 players to replace. Luke Wright was replaced by Joe Denly. Luke Wright suffered a concussion during the Big Bash League, and hence had to drop out. While, Mitchell Johnson, who announced his withdrawal from PSL amongst much trolling was replaced by another left arm speedster Tymal Mills. The last change was Lendl Simmons coming in for Colin Munro.
Quetta Gladiators, again had to replace Carlos Brathwaite (he was replaced last year as well) with the latest T20 sensation from West Indies Jofra Archer. Brathwaie, has been picked for the West Indies ODI team to play the World Cup Qualifiers. Meanwhile, Angelo Matthews was replaced by Anton Devcich, by Lahore Qalandars.
PSL 3 kicks off on February 22.
