Key Player of Lahore Qalandars to Miss PSL 7 Matches:
As soon as the Lahore Leg of PSL 7 began, a big setback happened for Lahore Qalandars for the remainder of the tournament. As per well known sources, a key player of Lahore Qalandars will miss fre matches in the later half of the event and also the playoff stage if Lahore make it. Rashid Khan is the player who is all set to miss these matches for Lahore Qalandars due to National Duty. Afghanistan have a series against Bangladesh.
As per sources, Australian leg spinner Fawad Ahmed is already picked by Lahore Qalandars as the replacement. Fawad has had a good PSL career, representing multiple franchises over the year. Fawad was also a key part of the PSL title win of Quetta Gladiators in 2019. Although this is a good replacement, but surely not on the level of Rashid Khan. Rashid is regarded as one of the best leg spinners in T20 Cricket history and losing him will be critical for Lahore Qalandars.
An official announcement by PSL and Lahore Qalandars is awaited, but the news is confirmed.
