Nottinghamshire fast bowler Luke Fletcher will enter the draft process of the inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which gets underway in February 2016.
There are four different price categories for the PSL draft – Platinum ($190,000), Diamond ($65,000), Gold ($47,000) and Silver ($28,000)
Fletcher has opted to place himself in the silver category giving an attractive price proposition for the teams participating in the PSL.
West Indies T20 International captain Darren Sammy wished Fletcher well while former New Zealand international James Franklin also voiced his support.
“He's a specialist death bowler…the great thing I like about him is his character, he is always up for it,” said Franklin.
Fletcher has the experience of playing 49 T20 games since his debut in the format in 2009 and has accounted for 58 wickets at an average of 22.68.
Expressing his excitement about participating in the PSL draft, Fletcher is confident that his skills as a specialist bowler in the shortest format will add value to the team that picks him.
“I am looking forward to being part of the Pakistan Super League draft.
“I am confident in my ability as a T20 bowler.
“I have shown in the T20 Blast and in New Zealand, that I have the attitude and skills to deliver against the best.
“I feel I offer great value to the franchises, being a specialist T20 bowler with strong yorker ability.
“I will try to smash the odd six too!”
The inaugural season of the PSL begins on 4th February in the United Arab Emirates and consists of 24 matches with five participating teams.
