The franchise has signed the player for the entire remaining season.
England cricket team’s star batsman Dan Lawrence has been included by BBL franchise Melbourne Stars as a replacement. Let us tell you that the 26-year-old player has been included in the team by the franchise as a replacement for the overseas player. It is noteworthy that after their return to the national team, the franchise will no longer be able to get the services of Usama Mir and Haris Rauf.
So if we tell you about Dan Lawrence, he has the experience of playing four Big Bash League matches. Dan has represented the Brisbet Heat in the 2020 season. Although he was included in the BBL draft pick held in September, he was not included by any team.
Meanwhile, Haris Rauf has been included in the Pakistan team for the limited overs series against New Zealand starting in January. It is noteworthy that the first T20 match will be played between Pakistan and New Zealand on January 12.
But before this, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued NOC to Pakistani players Haris Rauf, Usama Mir and Zaman Khan to manage the workload. However, he will be allowed to play in the ongoing Big Bash League only till January 28.
Dan’s arrival will strengthen Melbourne
On the other hand, the arrival of Dan Lawrence will further strengthen the Melbourne Stars franchise, because till now whenever the team has included a player as an overseas replacement, his experience has not been anything special. It is noteworthy that earlier the Stars had selected Harry Brook, but he withdrew his name from the tournament due to workload.
