Jordan Cox to play in 2024 Pakistan Super League


Jordan Cox has been drafted by Islamabad United ahead of the 2024 Pakistan Super League.

The wicketkeeper-batter, 23, was selected as a Platinum pick, the highest category in the draft, after Islamabad utilised their sole Wild Card in order to move him up from his original Gold category.

Cox is currently playing in Australia’s Big Bash League for Melbourne Renegades, having already finished as leading run-scorer at the Abu Dhabi T10 earlier this winter while representing Bangla Tigers.

He will be joined in Pakistan’s capital by former Essex fast bowler Tymal Mills, alongside fellow Englishmen Alex Hales and Tom Curran.

In addition to Cox’s involvement, Catherine Dalton will make history at next year’s tournament as the fast bowling coach of Multan Sultans.

Dalton’s appointment in October made her the first female PSL coach, as well as the first female fast bowling coach of any professional men’s team.

The 2024 Pakistan Super League will begin on 13 February, with Dalton’s Sultans facing Lahore Qalandars, before Cox’s first game comes on 16 February as Islamabad take on Karachi Kings.

The final is scheduled to take place on 09 March in Lahore.
