KARACHI: Sri Lankan veteran Mahela Jayawardene on Wednesday became the latest player to sign up for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) draft which will be held in December, while the event will be played from February 4-24 in Dubai and Sharjah.
Jayawardene, who represented Sri Lanka in 149 Tests, 448 ODIs, and 55 T20Is, joins a club of more than 150 foreign players who have consented to be included in the players’ draft.
In an illustrious international career spanning 18 years, Jayawardene has established himself as a leading sportsperson with great mentorship qualities. Jayawardene led Sri Lanka to the finals of the 2007 ICC World Cup and the 2012 ICC World T20.
