The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) earlier named seven centrally contracted players for the second edition of the Kashmir Premier League (KPL 2022). Reportedly, the wicket-keeping batter Sarfaraz Ahmed will be the eighth centrally contracted player to participate in KPL 2.
Ahmed, who has been named in Category D of the red-ball format, will play KPL 2022 with a special performance by PCB. In the recent developments, the board named Fawad Alam (Red Ball Category B), Azhar Ali (Red Ball Category A), Abid Ali (Red Ball Category D), Nauman Ali (Red Ball Category C), Haseebullah, Mohammad Huraira, Ali Usman (all three Emerging Category) for the upcoming edition of the league.
In the players' draft that took place in Islamabad today, Ahmed has been roped in by Kotli Lions for KPL 2. Notably, he is often seen in the squad but is rarely seen in the playing XI. After his fall and Mohammad Rizwan's rise, there has been intense competition between the two occupying the same post in the team.
As far as KPL 2022 is concerned, it will kick-start on 11th August in Muzaffarabad, whereas the final will be played on the 25th of the month.
