Australia’s 24-year-old Aaron Summers is all set to become the first foreign player to feature in the revamped Pakistan’s domestic cricket as he will join Southern Punjab for the Pakistan Cup One-Day Tournament set to being from January 8 next year.
A press release issued by the PCB said that domestic competition rules of the country allow one foreign player per side as long as the foreign player submits a Non-Objective Certificate from his home board.

The Tasmanian will arrive in Lahore on 28 December and after a week-long training camp under Azhar Mahmood at the National High Performance Centre, will join Southern Punjab in Karachi on 5 January. Apart from Summers, Azhar, who has also been looped in for a short-term contract by Southern Punjab, will also work on Taimoor Bhatti, a 22-year-old rookie fast bowler from Rahim Yar Khan, who is yet to get a domestic exposure.
