Andrus said, ‘I think Babar Azam was not selected in this league because his availability could be an issue.’ Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf have been joined by the Wells Fire team, while Ehsanullah has been given a chance by the Invisibles team while Shadab Khan has been bought by Birmingham Phoenix. Afridi and Shadab Khan were part of the 1-1 crore draft while Haris was in the 60 lakh and Ehsanullah 40 lakh draft.
