It is pertinent to mention here that, seven Pakistani cricketers have been drafted into the latest season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2017, with all-rounder Sohail Tanvir becoming the most expensive Pakistani player picked in the first round of drafts.

Sohail Tanvir now sits with Jamaican superstar Chris Gayle, South Africas David Miller, and West Indian Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard.

Pakistan emerging spinner Shadab Khan, who was impressive for his side the Islamabad United, at Pakistan Super League (PSL) was able to find his place in the CPL and was picked by Trinbago Knight Riders for $30,000, way much than PSL man of the series Kamran Akmal who was sold for $15,000 and would represent the St Lucia Stars.
