All-rounders we all know have a special place in the shortest version of the game. Now because Angelo Mathews is among the best all-rounders in modern day cricket and because he has sufficient experience of playing in UAE conditions, there is no way the former Sri Lankan captain’s name can be ignored during the proceedings.

Imran Tahir, the Pakistan born South African cricketer has made himself available for the first time and hence, his name will feature during the PSL draft for the next edition.

The fact that spinners have played a crucial role in the previous two editions and because Imran is familiar with the conditions, there is no doubt that all six teams will look to boost their chances by securing Imran’s services.
