ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan are among five Bangladesh cricketers reportedly being included in the replacement draft for the remaining part of the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League.

Shakib is placed in the platinum category while Tamim is placed in the diamond category and apart from them Taskin Ahmed, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman all are in the silver category.

Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are the surprising ones, who are not listed in the draft.

PSL was postponed indefinitely after seven players and staff members tested positive for coronavirus in early March.

However, the cash-rich T20 league is now scheduled to resume on June 1 and as per media reports, 132 foreign players have shown their availability for the tournament.
