The international players, who have joined the rebel league, include three Pakistani and a Bangladeshi cricketer.

The most notable among the new recruits is former India international Madan Lal's son, Kunal who will play for Ahmedabad Rockets.

Apart from the players, the ICl has also recruited former Pakistan Test player Nadeem Khan as an assistant coach for the Lahore Badshahs' side.

Kunal, the 24-year-old left-arm medium pacer who has represented Delhi at the first-class level, adds to the list of second-generation Indian cricketers to have chosen ICL platform to showcase their talent.

Kunal is presently debuting at the ICL 20-20 domestic tournament and has already given a good account of himself by consistently performing for the Ahmedabad Rockets.
