He is coming back from a good form in Big Bash League (BBL) and international career. His all-round performance helped Afghanistan beat Ireland 3-0 in the ODI series.
PSL 2021 – Alex Hales (Islamabad United)
The former England opener Alex Hales was in red hot form in the recently concluded BBL. The right-handed batsman slammed 547 runs in 15 innings at a strike rate of 161+. Hales, 32, is eyeing a place in the England lineup ahead of the World T20 later this year.
PSL 2021 – Dan Christian (Karachi Kings)
Dan Christian is a match-winner with both the ball and bat. The Australian all-rounder has done wonders for his BBL franchise Sydney Sixers, helping them win their third BBL title.
PSL 2021 – Chris Lynn (Multan Sultans)
The attacking Australian batsman can take on any opposition from ball one. Lynn has smashed 458 runs in 13 matches for Brisbane Heat in BBL 2020-21. He would like to replicate his BBL performances in PSL 2021 in their bid to maiden PSL title.
PSL 2021 – Chris Gayle (Quetta Gladiators)
