Pakistan Squad in Masters Champions League (MCL) 2016

masters champions league players listThe inaugural edition of the Masters Champions League is set to be played in early 2016, over the course of two weeks in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. With six teams in the tournament, and 90 players in total from across the world, this is definitely going to be an exciting event to watch to.

Many players from Pakistan have been selected by the franchises of the tournament, which their fans in the country all the more reason to watch them in action, once again.

The team with the most number of Pakistani players is the Virgo Super Kings. For a base price of $50,000, they have bagged the veteran Azhar Mahmood, who spent quite some time playing for his country. In addition to this, he has also played for several other franchises across the world such as Kings XI Punjab in Indian Premier League, Cape Cobras in South Africa and Sydney Thunder in Australia, thus making him a dangerous player.

He will be accompanied with Hasan Raza, Humayun Farhat and the legendary Mohammad Yousuf. Among these three, Yousuf is unarguably the most experienced batsmen, having spent more than a decade playing for Pakistan.

Another Pakistani legend playing in the tournament is Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, who currently plays for Derbyshire County Cricket Club in England. As a regular ODI player, he has gained considerable experience and possesses a lethal skill-set, which has been identified by Gemini Arabians. Along with Saqlain Mushtaq, they will be the bowling front for the franchise.

Sagittarius Soldiers are yet another franchise who have taken a couple of Pakistani players under their wings. One of the most interesting purchases, they have picked up Mushtaq Ahmed, who is currently the spin bowling coach for the Pakistan cricket team. His experience as a bowler and a coach will definitely come in handy when he plays for the team.

One of the most popular and best all-rounders that Pakistan has ever produced, Abdul Razzaq has managed to make his presence felt in the tournament. Capricorn Commanders bought him for a base price of $50,000, and will be looking forward to benefit from his years of experience as an ODI player. The masters champions league players list from Pakistan is placed below.
