Karachi: Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is the latest overseas player to give his consent to appear in the Pakistan Super League T20 event, scheduled next February in Dubai and Sharjah.
The Pakistan Cricket Board said Watson had become the 152nd foreign player to sign the consent form to play in the PSL.
The PSL secretariat is scheduled to hold the players draft/auction in December for the PSL in which initially five franchise teams will compete with each team allowed to field four to five overseas signings.
Najam Sethi who heads the PSL project said the signing of Watson was a positive development given his background and he would definitely be a hot pick in the PSL draft.
Sethi however conceded that the PCB might allow a special category of players in the PSL draft process and the maximum amount in this category could be USD 200,000 to 225,000 for a overseas player.
