Both Sreesanth and Binny have retired from active cricket in India and hence are allowed to play in overseas franchise leagues.

All the matches will be played at the Moosa Cricket Stadium in Houston, Texas and the league had been sanctioned by the ICC, in May this year and the USA Cricket board has roped in 40 international cricketers across seven teams.

The seven teams include Americans, Indians, Paks, Windees, Bengalees, Aussies and English. 

Sreesanth and Binny will be part of the Premium Indians team. 

The 40-year-old Sreesanth, who announced his retirement from all forms of domestic cricket in India last year, said, "I am honoured to be picked by the Premium Indians. I am still very new to franchisee cricket eco-system outside of India so really excited about it. 

"It would be a great experience to play in front of the American crowd in a new territory for the first time."
