Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 sensation Shadab Khan made another forward leap in his career after he was drafted in by the Trinbago Knight Riders on Friday for the upcoming Caribbean Premier League season.

Shadab, who earned fans all around the world after his debut stint with Islamabad United in the recently concluded PSL 2, will earn a hefty $30,000 during the six-week tournament set to be held this summer.

The 18-year-old bowler bothered batsmen with his leg-breaks and extraordinary googlies bagging nine wickets at an impressive economy rate of 6.61 in PSL 2.

Sohail Tanvir was retained by the Guyana Amazon Warriors and once again was drafted in the top category of players, who will earn $160,000.

Kamran Akmal ($15000) – St Lucia Stars
