The Pakistan leg spinner Shadab Khan was among the top picks in 2019 Caribbean Premier League draft that was held on Wednesday.
Amoung others who were top gainers in the draft were England
batsman Alex Hales and Sri Lanka seamers Lasith Malinga and Isuru Udana bagging
USD 160,000 each after being picked up in the first round.
Hales went to Barbados Tridents, Malinga to St Lucia Stars, and Udana to St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo were retained by Jamaica Tallawahs and Trinbago Knight Riders respectively in the first round. Pakistan legspinner Shadab Khan, who missed CPL 2018, rounded off the first-round picks and will be in action for Guyana Amazon Warriors in the upcoming season, ESPN Cricinfo reported.
Shadab is a like-for-like swap for Rashid Khan, who will instead feature as a marquee player in the Euro T20 Slam, which clashes with the CPL. Other CPL regulars such as Brendon McCullum, Luke Ronchi and Chris Lynn have also opted for the Euro T20 Slam over the CPL.
