Three Pakistan players join ICL
“The three Pakistani players are upcoming talents and will add to the Lahore Badshahs team,” an official of the ICL said on Tuesday.
Nadeem Khan, the former Pakistan Test player, has been named the assistant coach of the Badshahs. Mughal, a fast-bowling all-rounder, brings the experience of 96 first-class games, during which he took 453 wickets.
Yousuf, a right-handed batsman from Sialkot, was named in Pakistan’s one-day team during the tour of England in 2006 but never played for the country.
Ryan Campbell, the former Australian wicketkeeper who was an understudy to Adam Gilchrist, has also signed up for the ICL and will be taking part in the unofficial Twenty20 League’s second season starting on October 10. The ICL also confirmed signing Nazimuddin, the Bangladesh top-order batsman, and Kunal Lal, the Delhi left-arm fast bowler.
Lal is also the son of Madan Lal, the former Indian medium-pacer who coaches the Delhi Jets team in the ICL. Kunal made his Delhi debut last season, during which he took 41 wickets in 13 first-class games.
