PSL 8 Replacement Draft: Mohammad Hafeez available for selection

Mohammad Hafeez, who went unpicked in the players’ draft last December, is expected to be a hot commodity in the replacement draft. He has represented the Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars during the last seven seasons and has accumulated 1596 runs in 71 matches, making him the fourth highest run-scorer in the league so far.
