I'm using PNP provisioning templates.

I have created a template for the root site that creates columns and content types.

In the subweb, I have another template that creates 2 list instances. One list instance is just a list with a title field. The second ListInstance has applied the content type created at the root site, but on this list I have also created a lookup field to the first list instance.

How do I add the list field to the content type on that list with the PNP Provisioning template engine? Or does this have do be done in Powershell?

<pnp:ListInstance Title="My List" EnableAttachments="false" OnQuickLaunch="true" Description="" DocumentTemplate="" TemplateType="100" Url="Lists/My List" MinorVersionLimit="0" MaxVersionLimit="0" DraftVersionVisibility="0" TemplateFeatureID="00bfea71-de22-43b2-a848-c05709900100" ContentTypesEnabled="true" EnableFolderCreation="false" DefaultDisplayFormUrl="{site}/Lists/My List/DispForm.aspx" DefaultEditFormUrl="{site}/Lists/My List/EditForm.aspx" DefaultNewFormUrl="{site}/Lists/My List/NewForm.aspx" ImageUrl="/_layouts/15/images/itgen.png?rev=44" IsApplicationList="false" ValidationFormula="" ValidationMessage="">
                <pnp:ContentTypeBinding ContentTypeID="0x01007D8DB186841AFD4FA979B7347BDD586C" Default="true" />
                <pnp:ContentTypeBinding ContentTypeID="0x0120" />   
                <pnp:ContentTypeBinding ContentTypeID="0x01" Remove="true" />
                <View Name="{B4D4F64C-7D45-47EC-B5C9-91B6191C07DE}" DefaultView="TRUE" MobileView="TRUE" MobileDefaultView="TRUE" Type="HTML" DisplayName="All Items" Url="{site}/Lists/My List/AllItems.aspx" Level="1" BaseViewID="1" ContentTypeID="0x" ImageUrl="/_layouts/15/images/generic.png?rev=44">
                      <FieldRef Name="ID" />
                    <FieldRef Name="MyColumn1" />
                    <FieldRef Name="MyColumn2" />
                    <FieldRef Name="DateSent" />
                  <RowLimit Paged="TRUE">30</RowLimit>
                  <Aggregations Value="Off" />
                <Field Type="LookupMulti" DisplayName="First List" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" List="{listid:First List}" ShowField="Title" Mult="TRUE" Sortable="FALSE" UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary="FALSE" RelationshipDeleteBehavior="None" ID="{811990de-5c2f-4199-9723-21e9d337e521}" SourceID="{{listid:First List}}" StaticName="Column_x0020_FirstList" Name="Column_x0020_FirstList" ColName="int1" RowOrdinal="0" />
                <pnp:FieldRef ID="9a98837d-8099-4406-92ff-8920107d0c35" Name="MyColumn1" />
                <pnp:FieldRef ID="a257177e-6093-4125-8aba-bb11504f74f2" Name="MyColumn12" />
                <pnp:FieldRef ID="69d5c9f8-9031-4347-99e6-be6c55b8aab8" Name="DateSent" />

With the above template, the list get's created, attaches the content type, and creates the lookup field, but the lookup field isn't part of the list content type, therefore I have to do that step manually. Otherwise that lookup column isn't available when you click "New" on the list.
