Former Pakistan captain and experienced all-rounder Shoaib Malik and West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard are included in the Platinum category.
akistan all-rounder Sohail Tanvir (Diamond) along with left-arm Test pacers Mohammad Irfan and Junaid Khan (Gold) are also part of the Multan Sultans squad.
Sohaib Maqsood, Pakistan’s discarded ODI batsman, who belongs to Multan city plus spinners Kashif Bhatti and Irfan Khan Jr are also among Sultans’ pick. They have been kept in the Silver category.
"Meanwhile, commenting on the first pick, president of Multan Sultans Asher Schon said, “Multan Sultans have gone for experience and a strong Pakistani core with this selection. We would like to welcome the first nine Sultans on board and we can’t wait for the main draft to build on this selection.”
