LAHORE: The HBL Pakistan Super League Player Draft 2022 will take place at the High Performance Centre here on Sunday (today) for which more than 425 players from 32 countries have registered.

In the Platinum category, Lahore Qalandars will have the first pick, followed by Multan Sultans, Karachi Kings, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators.

Each franchise can comprise up to 18 players, including three each in Platinum, Diamond and Gold categories, five Silver, two Emerging and up to two Supplementary categories.
