PSL 6: Multan Sultan suffers a big blow
“While training for the remainder of the HBL Pakistan Super League 6, I felt lower back pain and had to consult a doctor. Unfortunately, I have been advised to rest and can no longer accompany my team Multan Sultans for the Abu Dhabi leg.
He has uttered his disappointment over not being a part of the team but sends best wishes and prayers to the Sultans for yielding their maiden trophy this season.
“I am disappointed that I would be sitting out of the tournament, but my best wishes, support, and prayers are with the team to take the trophy.”
Notably, Sultans are the last to get added to the list of the PSL franchises as they were auctioned by Ali Tareen in PSL 2018. Since then, they have been suffering ups and downs and reached the playoffs last season. Unfortunately, they could not reach the final.
It is pertinent to mention here that the remaining matches of the league are expected to begin from 1st June as Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United will tie the knots in the fifteenth combat of the HBL PSL 2021.
