LAHORE: Quetta Gladiators inform batsman Ahsan Ali, who missed two important matches against Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi due to a thumb injury, will now be available for selection in Quetta’s crucial match against Multan Sultans while Peshawar Zalmi pacer Saqib Mahmood has pulled out of the ongoing seventh edition of PSL as he has been named in England’s Test squad for series against West Indies.
Ahsan who joined Quetta in 2019, has proved to be a good opening batter for his team, and his presence in Quetta’s all-important clash against Multan may prove beneficial for the team.
It is pertinent to mention that Quetta’s place in the play-offs is hanging in balance as they are sitting on the fifth spot with six points in eight matches after being beaten by both Qalandars and Zalmi in their last two games.
Qalandars outclassed them by eight wickets in a one-sided encounter, while Zalmi defeated them by 24 runs in an interesting game on Tuesday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Meanwhile, the bowler said on his Twitter account he was heading home to prepare for England’s Test series against West Indies, which will be played in a few weeks.
“Wishing the boys best of luck for the rest of the tournament,” Mahmood added.
Mahmood was named in the three-match Test tour of the Caribbean earlier this month. The series is scheduled to start next month and if the bowler is named in the playing XI then he will be given his Test debut.
