TORONTO - The Tyrants surprised with their fifth draft pick at the MLC as they signed little known Afghanistan fast bowler Hamid Hassan in the wee hours of Saturday morning. The move raised many an eye brow as the decision comes at a time when most franchises are focused on hunting down celebrities.

Hassan, known to be the fastest bowler among associate nations, has enjoyed some success at the highest level and was ecstatic about the opportunity. "This is easily the highlight of my career. The culture in the Tyrants' dressing room is very synonymous to the general attitude of the Afghan people - hard working, determined, tough and capable of breaking down any barrier. I will definitely feel at home and look forward to cracking helmets in every game I play."

Tipped to open the bowling alongside speedster Shane Bond, Hassan joins an impressive top order consisting of David Warner, Brendon McCullum and Virat Kohli, the Tyrants' previous drafts at the inaugural season of the MLC.
