Nominations open for Big Bash drafts

Nominations for the KFC BBL|14 and Weber WBBL|10 Overseas Player Drafts are now open.

The world's best players will be soon throwing their snapbacks in the ring for a chance to be snapped up in this year's drafts, with clubs keen to boost their rosters with international talent.
