As the final date to name the available players for Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 draft draws near more names are being added to the list every day. The most recent inclusion is that of New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson. He has been signed up for PSL season 4 and included in the Platinum category for the players draft.

Anderson joins compatriots Brendon McCullum, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi and Mitchell McClenaghan in the highest category. The other names that feature there are South African superstar AB de Villiers, Imran Tahir. Australia’s Steve Smith, Chris Lynn along with the likes of Kieron Pollard, Rashid Khan and several others.

In his international career, the Kiwi all-rounder has been a constant feature in the shortest format of the game. To date, Anderson has featured in 31 T20Is scoring scored 485 runs along with 14 wickets. He has a rich T20 experience having played various leagues around the world including the IPL where he has been a part of teams like Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians and most recently Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore.

If he is picked by one of the franchises which is a high probability, this will be the first time that Anderson will sport the PSL jersey.
