Rashid Khan of Lahore Qalandars will not be able to play many matches in PSL. If he joins the Test squad against Zimbabwe, it is likely that he will leave the event unfinished and leave for UAE.
The Afghanistan board has announced the squad for next month’s Test series against Zimbabwe, which also includes league spinner, Rashid Khan.
The Test series will start on March 2, while the PSL starts on February 20. It is likely that Rashid Khan will not be able to play most of the PSL matches and will leave for the UAE.
Rashid Khan is likely to play only two matches for the Lahore Qalandars in the entire event, but other Afghan players Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, Noor Ahmed, and Qais Ahmed will be available for the entire event if they are not selected in the squad.
In an interview, Afghan Leg spinner Rashid Khan said that playing against Babar Azam in the PSL would also be a difficult challenge.
He said that Babar Azam has played great cricket in the last three or four years and has shown his quality in every condition. Babar Azam is a special player and as a bowler, he enjoys bowling a batsman who challenges him. That your focus is 200% against such top batsmen and you do not want to give a chance at all because if you make a small mistake in front of a batsman like Babar Azam, he will punish you severely.
