The two players have been roped in as replacements for Dawid Malan and Chris Jordan who have both been called up to the England T20I squad for the upcoming series against the West Indies.
Sussex pacer Mills will take Jordan’s place in the squad while West Indies batsman Simmons replaces Malan.
Both the replacement players will arrive in Dubai on Wednesday and should be available for Peshawar Zalmi’s clash against Multan Sultans which takes place on Thursday.
Peshawar are currently in second position in the 2019 PSL table with three wins and two losses from their five games so far.
