Yusuf Pathan to play in Dhaka Premier League

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) all-rounder Yusuf Pathan has joined the Dhaka Premier League (DPL). 

After an extremely successful IPL 2016, Yusuf will now be seen playing for Abahani Limited in the DPL.

Although KKR did not make it to the finals of the recently concluded IPL, Yusuf was one of the best players in their squad. KKR's middle-order did not succeed in the tournament but Yusuf did.

BCCI have recently allowed its players to participate in List A matches outside India. This has allowed a number of domestic players to take part in such tournaments outside India.

Abahani Limited have already signed Manoj Tiwary, who used to play for KKR once but went unsold in the auction for this year’s IPL. But according to the rules of the DPL, only one foreign player can be a part of the playing XI.

Other Indian players who are playing in the DPL are Jatin Saxena, Jalaj Saxena, Milind Kumar and Sachin Rana.
