Pakistan captain Babar Azam, wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan and pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi are set to be featured in the upcoming season of Big Bash League (BBL).

Earlier, Australia’s white-ball skipper Aaron Finch showered praises on Pakistan counterpart Babar for his stunning performance in the ODI series won by Pakistan.

Finch said that he would love to see Babar play in the Big Bash League (BBL), “If Babar Azam is available to play in the Big Bash, any team would love to have him”

"Babar is as good as anyone for a long time in this format of the game and T20 cricket," he added.

“The talent of Pakistan cricket is extraordinary. So I think world cricket is better when Pakistan are playing well and better when Pakistanis have the opportunity to play in our domestic league,” the Australian player added.

The draft will be hosted by Fox Cricket’s Adam Gilchrist, Michael Hussey, Darren Lehmann, Kath Loughnan, and Mark Howard on the 28th of August.

The draft will take place on Saturday, August 28, after the first ODI between Australia and Zimbabwe in Townsville.
