PSL replacement draft to take place on January 24


The replacement draft for the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will take place on January 24 at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier given the option to all franchises to pick one additional local player. The franchises will also pick replacements for their players who will not be available for the fourth episode of the league.

Multan Sultans will find the replacement of Steve Smith who has been ruled out of the event due to an elbow injury. Smith got his elbow injury while playing for the Comilla Victorians in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). He will now go through a surgery and take four weeks rest.

It merits mentioning here that the PSL 4 will commence from February 14 with a glittering opening ceremony. The last eight matches including the grand finale are scheduled in Karachi and Lahore.
