Tridents pick Morris in CPL 2021 draft, Hasaranga goes to Patriots

However, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Lamichhane’s former Tallawahs team-mate, and Rashid Khan, who has represented the Tridents and the Amazon Warriors in the past, will not be part of CPL 2021, and will instead be on international duty for Afghanistan.

Tridents sign Smit Patel

Smit Patel, the former India Under-19 wicketkeeper-batter, who has now reportedly moved to the USA, filled up the Tridents’ 17th slot as a Major League Cricket pick. Patel, 28, has played 55 first-class matches and had also participated in the most recent 50-over and 20-over domestic competitions in India for Baroda. According to the draft regulations, a franchise can pick an MLC player, a West Indies local player, or not pick anyone as their 17th pick. The Amazon Warriors were the only franchise that opted against selecting a player in the 17th round.
