Los Angeles Knight Riders (LAKR) have secured the services of ex-KKR player Shakib Al Hasan for the forthcoming season of Major League Cricket (MLC). 

LAKR is owned by same franchise that owns Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League. Trinbago Knight Riders and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders also come under the same franchise. Shah Rukh Khan is among the stakeholders of this franchise.

Bangladesh legend Shakib Al Hasan has been absent from the last few seasons of the IPL. Previously, he played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.

LAKR has retained Sunil Narine, the star player from KKR, for the upcoming season. Additionally, they boast players like Andre Russell, Jason Roy, Spencer Johnson, Unmukt Chand, Ali Khan, Saif Badar, Nitish Kumar, and Shadley van Schalkwyk. 

LAKR has also drafted local talents Derone Davis, Matthew Tromp, Cirne Dry, and Adithya Ganesh.

The MLC player draft took place on March 21 this year, with another draft scheduled for June 16 to allow the six teams to finalize their squads.

Season 2 of MLC is set to commence on July 5th, featuring a match between MI New York and Seattle Orcas, who were the finalists of the previous season.
