We all loved playing in the streets and the traditional methods used for picking who batted first and who bowled at which number, didn’t we?
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to bring back those nostalgic memories with its upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 draft. It is scheduled to be held in the first week of December according to some reports.
The cricket’s governing body has decided to go for either ‘Puggam Puggaai’ or numbering where numbers are written on the ground and hidden under the bat and players – in this case, franchises – pick one each. It will take place on 3rd November.
Earlier, the team finishing last in the previous season got the first pick in the draft, however, things will be decided differently, giving the already colorful draft ceremony a more interesting look.
According to the sources, the draft ceremony will be held at Gaddafi Stadium or Greater Iqbal Park in Lahore.
The remaining picks will be decided like the previous seasons. The move is aimed at associating the league with street cricket and giving everyone a blast from the past.
