Irfan Pathan in pool of 70 foreign players for draft for Sri Lanka’s LPL – report

Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan is among 70 foreign players to have shown interest in playing the Lanka Premier League (LPL), proposed to start in the third week of August.

The BCCI is believed to have cleared Pathan’s request to be allowed to play. The Indian board doesn’t allow active players to participate in other Twenty20 leagues but Pathan, who last played official cricket in February 2019, announced his retirement in January this year.

Pathan will now be put in a player draft unless one of the five franchises choose him to be a marquee player.
