The draft will take place behind closed doors on April 4. Unlike the previous time when there was a live televised event on Sky Sports, this edition may not be broadcast considering the covid-19 situation in the country.

Among the overseas players, eight of them have set their reserve at the max of Euro 125,000, including Babar Azam and the World’s No.1 T20I bowler from South Africa, Tabraiz Shamsi.

As many as 42 slots are left to be filled in the men’s event. Among home-grown talents, England has Tom Banton, Alex Lees, and Olly Stone, who recently withdrew from Test cricket at the county level, among other names.
