What an exciting HBL PSL 2016 draft. Some brilliant young players picked in the emerging round like 17 year old Amad Alam picked by the Kings. Disappointed to not see some T20 giants being picked like Jason Roy; hopefully next season. It’s going to be an exuberant second season of the PSL and hope to see you guys there and with that it is a wrap from me as all the combinations are completed. Hope your side made some good buys but in case, until the tournament starts, its goodbye from me.

Peace Out,

The Cornered Tiger
