Leg spinner Matt Parkinson and pacer Pat Brown will replace Saqib Mahmood and Liam Livingstone in the PSL 2022.
Parkinson has been roped in as a partial replacement for Lancashire and England teammate Saqib Mahmood while the fast bowler is on national duty in the West Indies, where England will play a five-match T20I series.
Liam Livingstone will also miss the beginning of the tournament for the same reason, with Pat Brown – who has struggled with injuries since making his England debut in November 2019 – replacing him, also at Peshawar Zalmi.
Quetta Gladiators chose England batter, Dan Lawrence, as a reserved supplementary choice, whereas Zalmi snapped up Pakistan medium quick pace bowler Sohail Khan in that class. All six franchises bolstered their squads with reserved and supplementary picks earlier this month following the approval of PCB for picking additional players to cope with the unpleasant COVID-19 situation.
Pakistan’s premier league competition- PSL 2022 is due to begin on January 27 and will continue till February 27. A total of 34 matches will be played across two venues with National Stadium Karachi to hold the opening leg of the tournament which consists of 15 games. While the rest of the league matches, as well as the playoff round, will be played in Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.
