Updates from the venue:

Sohail Akhtar will captain Lahore Qalandars in the upcoming season. 

Quetta Gladiators have picked Abdul Nasir while Karachi Kings have drafted in Dan Lawrence and Lahore Qalandars have gone with Farzan Raja in the Silver category.

Quetta Gladiators have snapped up England's Tymal Mills in the Silver category. Tymal can clock 90kph with ease and is regarded as a wicket-taking option as he often outfoxes players with his searing pace and prodigious bounce. 

Jamaican all-rounder Fabian Allen has been added to Multan Sultans squad in a bid to provide balance to the side as he is tipped as a utility cricketer. 

Pakistan-born and US-based Ali Khan has been drafted by Karachi Kings in the silver category. He is good at bowling toe-crushing yorkers which could certainly help Karachi in the death overs. 

Pakistan Under-19 captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Rohail Nazir, who is in sublime form these days, has been picked by Multan Sultans in the emerging category. 

The pugnacious Lahore born Proteas leg-spin magician Imran Tahir has been kept as a contingency plan by Multan Sultans. There is seldom a dull moment when Imran is in action.

The swashbuckling power-hitting batsman from England Liam Livingstone is picked by Peshawar Zalmi in the supplementary category.

The elegant batsman from West Indies Lendl Simmons goes to Lahore Qalandars. He was an important cog in the wheel for West Indies side that won 2016 World T20 tournament.

Aggressive opener Khurram Manzoor has been a consistent performer in domestic cricket and he would dearly like to carry his form for Quetta Gladiators who have selected him in the supplementary category.
