Bangladesh’s all-rounder Shakib Al Hassan will not be available to Peshawar Zalmi for remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) 8 matches.
As shared by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Shakib had to leave PSL 8 halfway due to a family emergency. “Peshawar Zalmi’s Shakib Al Hasan has had to leave the squad to attend a family emergency in the United States and he has been replaced by Azmatullah Omarzai,” PCB shared.
“The Bangladesh all-rounder would return to the Pakistan Super League for the Playoffs in case of Peshawar Zalmi’s qualification,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, Shakib also felt disappointed over leaving Zalmi squad.”I have to temporarily leave the PSL 8 to attend an important personal matter. I know I have a strong fan-base here and I was looking forward to playing all the matches in front of all the fans,” he said.
