PSL 2022 – Due to national commitments, Rashid Khan will not be able to play for the Lahore Qalandars in the final
It was an incredible comeback for the Lahore Qalandars as they held their nerve to register a six-run win against the Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 Eliminator 2, advancing them to a semifinal showdown against the defending champions Multan Sultans. The city of Lahore would be delighted to see the Sultans’ reign of terror come to an end.
As the Lahore Qalandars prepare to win their first Pakistan Super League title, they are hoping that one of their key players who had left the tournament in the middle of it will return in time for the crucial tournament decider. Rashid Khan, a star Afghanistan leg-spinner, is the player in question.
In the middle of the season, Rashid, who had been a vital component of the Lahore-based franchise throughout the season, went to represent Afghanistan in a limited-overs series against Bangladesh that was still underway at the time of his departure. When it came to the ball, the leggie was outstanding in the PSL, taking down 13 opponents in nine matches. In his absence, the PSL Technical Committee recommended Fawad Ahmed as a replacement, who was confirmed by the PSL Executive Committee.
While the Qalandars were preparing to welcome him back, the Afghan sensation took to his official Twitter account to announce that he would be unable to participate in the summit clash because he had a national responsibility to attend to first. Nonetheless, he wished Shaheen Afridi, the team’s captain, and the rest of the players success in the final.
