All six franchises of Pakistan Super League (PSL) filled up their squads as they picked up international superstars in the replacement draft held on Tuesday.
The majority of the players selected in the original draft were unavailable for the remainder of the tournament due to various scheduling conflicts. No English player was available for the rest of the tournament as they will be taking part in the T20 Blast, scheduled to begin from 9 June.
PSL 6 is set to resume from 1 June, after the tournament was postponed after just 14 matches due to an outbreak of COVID-19 within the PSL bio-secure bubble.
Star players such as Rashid Khan, Alex Hales, Tom Banton, and Colin Ingram will be unavailable for the rest of the tournament, leaving the franchises short on quality players and some big shoes to fill. The likes of Martin Guptill, Andre Russell, Shakib Al-Hasan and Usman Khawaja have stepped in to take their place and add to the quality of the league.
