A pair of current Indian Premier League bowlers and three Papua New Guinea internationals, fresh from making the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 qualifiers in Zimbabwe this month, will link with clubs to take advantage of the pre-season competition on offer.

As well as playing in the KFC T20 Max competition, the Indian duo will train at the Bupa National Cricket Centre. And join in with the Queensland Bulls' pre-season preparations.

Sakariya made his debut for India last year in T20. And One Day Internationals in the series against Sri Lanka. Both pacemen played in the most recent IPL tournament, where Rajasthan was beaten in the Final by Gujarat Titans.

Sunshine Coast will host Sakariya while Wynnum-Manly will welcome Choudhary.

The influx of players into the KFC T20 Max also features more than a dozen current or recent KFC Big Bash League contracted players. As well as regional and country representatives and other interstate recruits.

Due to the popularity of the concept and a surge in the number of players expressing interest. Queensland Cricket today updated the competition rules to allow each Premier club. To sign an additional interstate or international recruit, moving from three players per club to four.
