Australian allrounder Shane Watson has signed up for the Pakistan Super League. Retired batsman will now be a part of the draft process which takes place in December.
The competition has already attracted the likes of Kevin Pietersen and Chris Gayle, and Australians Brad Haddin and Brad Hodge.
“I am very excited to be involved in the inaugural PSL,” said Watson, who last month told foxsports.com.au that he was interested in playing in the tournament.
“There are a lot of world class players involved so I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
The allrounder’s signature is a major coup and chairman Najam Sethi is excited about Watson’s inclusion in the PSL.
“We are delighted to have Shane on board and with his record in T20 cricket, he will definitely be a hot pick in the PSL draft,” Sethi said.
Watson is the 152nd foreign player to join the PSL for the December draft according to the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Only 20 of the 152 will play in the tournament with each of the five PSL sides allowed to draft four international players.
The tournament will run from February 4 to 24 with matches in Dubai and Sharjah. However, these dates overlap with Australia’s tour of New Zealand.
