Rashid Khan to miss the PSL-7 final due to national duty

Published on

Afghanistan and Lahore Qalandars leg-spinner Rashid Khan has confirmed that he won’t be able to make it to the final of the PSL-7 against Multan Sultans.

Earlier a report had stated that Rashid is in talks with the ACB officials and will have to clear the covid test on arrival in Pakistan in order to take part in the match. But in a tweet posted on his official account, Rashid said the national duty comes first for him as Afghanistan are currently taking on Bangladesh in their home conditions and he’ll prioritise playing for his country ahead of playing for Qalandars.

It would’ve been great to be part of @lahoreqalandars and play alongside lads in @thePSLt20 final. I won’t be able to make it for the finals due to National Duty which is always a first priority. I wish my captain @iShaheenAfridi @sameenrana and team GOOD LUCK INSHALLAH,” Rashid Khan said on Twitter.

Rashid had to leave the tournament following his commitments with the Afghanistan side for their ongoing ODI series against Bangladesh. He was brilliant for Lahore Qalandars in the league stage of the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League. He was a star performer for Qalandars throughout their PSL-7 campaign. He bowled with an economy rate of 6.25, bagging 13 wickets in nine games.

Lahore Qalandars had squeezed out a tight win over Islamabad United last night in the second eliminator to qualify for the final of the tournament, where they will square off with table-toppers and the defending champions Multan Sultans.

The final of the PSL-7 will be played between Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on Sunday (February 27).
