Pathan brothers register for LPL draft

Jaffna Stallions won the competition last year by beating Galle Gladiators in the final

Both Irfan and Yusuf Pathan have registered themselves for the upcoming edition of the Lanka Premier League, Sri Lanka's premier T20 franchise competition, which is slated to begin on July 30. The likes of Shakib al Hasan, Usman Khawaja, Sherfane Rutherford, and Rilee Rossouw are the major attractions for the draft with James Faulkner, Ben Cutting, Temba Bavuma, Brendan Taylor, and Nicholas Pooran putting their names in the roster.

"Last year's success has certainly made a difference with more players from many cricket playing countries looking forward to playing in the LPL, which is a very good sign for the League and Sri Lanka cricket," Sri Lanka Cricket vice-president Ravin Wickremaratne said, reported ESPNCricinfo.

Jaffna Stallions won the competition last year by beating Galle Gladiators in the final. 135 million viewers across television and digital platforms tuned in to watch the final which SLC believes is a massive success. The tournament is once again likely to be held behind closed doors in Hambantota.
