Cricket Australia have confirmed the top 12 players for the inaugural BBL draft.
The draft, which is a first this season as the BBL attempts to grapple with a number of leagues around the world being played in the same time slot and dwindling interest domestically, will see all eight clubs able to draft four players across four rounds.
The rules for the draft mean that the platinum selection of players are the only ones who are able to be picked in the first round, with the remaining four platinum players then available for selection in the second round alongside gold tier players.
Gold and silver players are then eligible for selection in Round 3, while silver and bronze players are eligible in Round 4.
The list is headlined by the BBL's first nomination and former South African captain Faf du Plessis, although it's unclear if he will play the full tournament given the domestic South African league that kicks off in January.
Trent Boult - who was recently released from his central New Zealand central contract to play T20 leagues - is also among the top pool of players.
