Lanka Premier League 2024

A total of 9 Pakistani players have been selected to participate in the upcoming Lanka Premier League (LPL), which will commence right after the 2024 T20I World Cup in the West Indies and USA.

Scheduled from July 1 to July 21, the LPL 2024 will see significant involvement from Pakistani cricketers. The auction featured over 420 players from 24 cricket-playing nations, including 154 Sri Lankan players.

In today’s auction, eight Pakistani players were picked by various teams. The Colombo Strikers, who had already secured the services of star all-rounder Shadab Khan, further bolstered their squad by signing fast bowler Mohammad Wasim Jr. for $20,000.

The Dambulla Thunders made strategic moves by selecting middle-order batsman Iftikhar Ahmed and talented young batsman Haider Ali. These additions are expected to enhance their batting lineup with depth and experience.

B-Love Kandy was also active in the auction, securing fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain for $30,000. Hasnain, known for his express pace, will be a key asset to their bowling attack.
