Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Rizwan reportedly are set to enter the BBL 12 draft and the teams are already in the race to get them into their squad. The BBL 12 draft will go underway in the coming months and the nominations have opened for players around the world.
Ben Horne, a journalist from News Corp, reported that the big three of Pakistan will enter the BBL 12 draft. Azam, who is at the peak of his form, scored a match-winning 55 in the last test against Sri Lanka, partnering with Abdullah Shafique, who scored a massive 160*. It has now been reported that he will enter the BBL 12 draft. Going by his form in all three formats in recent years, there will be no wonder if teams start fighting for him, to get him in his squad.
Rizwan, on the other hand, has been the T20 specialist batter for Pakistan. And not to forget his keeping skills, the wicketkeeper-batter might get many offers in the upcoming player draft. Having said that the batter has been consistent in the other two formats too, this will be a great opportunity for him to showcase his potential to the Australian crowd.
Shaheen Afridi is also reportedly entering the BBL 12 draft alongside his other two teammates. The fans of Pakistan cricket are extremely excited to watch their favourite three shine in BBL. Haris Rauf, the Pakistan pace spearhead made a great impression in BBL earlier. It will be up to these experienced men to make their country proud in the upcoming season.
At this pace, we can expect more and more Pakistani players to make an impression in the future. Haris Rauf made it into the national squad with his fantastic performances in BBL. This time, the men who have already played a lot of matches for Pakistan are entering the draft in BBL 12. This will lay a path for the future stars of their nation who look up to them.
