RAWALPINDI: Quetta Gladiators, the defending champions, received a huge jolt as their front-line bowler Naseem Shah would not be available for them at least for a week due to ankle injury.
However Sarfraz-led side is yet to opt for his replacement. The franchise on Friday said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been informed about the development.
“Quetta Gladiators can officially confirm that Naseem Shah has been suggested a week’s rest by our physiotherapist Nisar Khan and this has been shared with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) medical panel as well,” Gladiators spokesman said.
Naseem had left the field against Peshawar Zalmi after feeling pain in his left ankle.
” The ankle strain was treated initially last night and today as well. Naseem will continue his rehabilitation with Quetta Gladiators,” the spokesnan added.
“In the meantime, we will decide whether we need a replacement or not,” the spokesman added.
