4. Draft T10 League 2018 – Pakhtoons
The draft of T10 league 2018 doesn’t seem much favorable for Pakhtoons as Shahid Afridi is the Icon Player of Pakhtoons. No one has any doubt about the strength and abilities of Boom Boom Afridi but the things have changed much now. Afridi Lala also known as Boom Boom has retired from Cricket and joining him is Colin Munro. Difficult Draft for Pakhtoons. Good Luck to Pakhtoons.

5. Bengal Tigers – T10 league Draft 2018
I would like to say here that the selectors of Bengal Tigers couldn’t do so well in the T10 league 2018 draft. Sunil Narine (Icon player), Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Morne Morkel are with Bengal Tigers. When I say that selectors couldn’t perform well means that you don’t find a Hard hitting player like in Kings and Warriors. The success to T10 league is that you need extremely hard-hitting batsmen who can put up 100 plus total on the board. I don’t find such ability in the players of Tigers.
Team Bengal Tigers
Coach: Stephen Flemming
Sunil Narine (Icon Player, WI), Jason Roy (Eng), Asif Ali (Pak), Mujeeb Ur Rahman (Afg), Sam Billings (Eng), Morne Morkel (SA), Aamer Yamin (Pak), Mohammad Nabi (Afg), Kusal Perera (SL), Sherfane Rutherford (WI), Kevon Cooper (WI), Rayad Emrit (WI), Ali Khan (US).
