Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton and Sherfane Rutherford and Carlos Brathwaite were the four West Indies players selected to play in the Pakistan Super League following the 2021 Draft held in Lahore on Sunday.
Each of the six teams was required to select 16 players in the draft; three from the platinum, diamond and gold categories, five silver, and two each from the emerging and supplementary categories.
Gayle, arguably the best T20 batsman of all time, was a platinum selection for the Quetta Gladiators, while Rutherford was a diamond selection for Peshawar Zalmi.
Chadwick Walton was selected from the gold category by the Karachi Kings. Multan Sultans selected Brathwaite as a supplementary player.
Most notably, Dwayne Bravo and Evin Lewis, players who had reportedly registered for the draft went undrafted.
Ninety players from the West Indies registered for the draft, the most from any country or territory. Eighty players from England registered for the draft while there were 40 from Sri Lanka and an estimated 30 each from South Africa and Afghanistan.
