• Kallis, Miller part of CPL draft

    A host of South Africa’s cricketers will be available for the Caribbean Premier League’s (CPL) draft, which takes place in Kingston, Jamaica on Thursday evening.

    The third CPL consists of six teams – Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts, St. Lucia and Trinidad – and is due to start in June.

    More than 200 players from 11 countries will be part of the draft.

    Local stars like Jacques Kallis, David Miller (who has a reserve price of $70 000), Wayne Parnell and forgotten son Johan Botha are all up for grabs.

    Other big names who are confirmed for the draft are Mahela Jayawardene, Tilakaratne Dilshan, Lasith Malinga, Ross Taylor and Shahid Afridi.

    Each team will finish with a final playing squad of 16 players, with 11 players chosen on Thursday in the Draft and the final place available going to an Under-19 cricketer (each team will be assigned four local U19 players and one from the ICC Americas membership as part of their training camp squad, and one will be chosen for the final 16).
