Yusuf Pathan to feature in Hong Kong T20 League

Yusuf Pathan, the India allrounder, has become the first Indian male cricketer to sign a deal with an overseas franchise-based T20 league.

On Saturday, he was unveiled by Kowloon Cantons for the second edition of the Hong Kong Twenty20 League, which is scheduled to run from March 8 to 12.

Yusuf is the third big signing for Kowloon Cantons, who have already picked up Pakistan's Shahid Afridi and England's Tymal Mills, apart from Scotland's Calum MacLeod. Other marquee signings for the league include Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan, West Indies' Darren Sammy, New Zealand's James Franklin and the former South Africa offspinner Johan Botha.

Michael Clarke, the former Australia captain, had represented Cantons as a marquee player last year.
