BBL12 draft: Perth Scorchers list boss Kade Harvey explains why they overlooked Faf du Plessis, Andre Russell

Perth Scorchers recruiting boss Kade Harvey admits there was never a massive temptation to pick the five platinum-tier players who missed out in Sunday’s inaugural import draft because of their limited availability.

Ex-South African captain Faf du Plessis, West Indies trio Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo and England opener/former Scorcher Jason Roy were stunningly snubbed by all eight franchises.

Harvey, whose Scorchers were the only team to pass in the first round, still felt the competition took a step forward with the draft but would learn from how it all played out.

The reigning BBL champs were interested in du Plessis a couple of seasons ago but things didn’t eventuate.
