The Mzansi Super League (MSL) is back for its second edition after the completion of its star-studded player draft where many high-profile picks were made by all the franchises. An eclectic mix of international players and local talent have been inducted into the different squads for MSL 2019.
In the midst of this, the three Pakistani cricketers picked in the MSL draft include Wahab Riaz, Asif Ali and Mohammad Nawaz, all of whom will be teammates in the Cape Town Blitz. Wahab has been selected as the team’s marquee player in place of England’s Dawid Malan.
Asif and Nawaz have been retained by the team, as they both previously represented the Blitz in the inaugural edition of the competition. Both had mixed outings last year and will hope to improve their record in the tournament.
