PSL 2022: Lahore leg looks in doubt for Afghan Players

Afghan tour of bangladesh

The Lahore leg of the ongoing cricket event Pakistan Super League PSL 7 looks in doubt for the Afghan players participating in the league due to the announcement of the Afghanistan tour of Bangladesh.

On Friday, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the tour. Earlier the Afghan players were to travel to Zimbabwe but the inability of the host country to arrange the broadcasting system required for Decision Review System (DRS) caused its postponement.

The outing will include three ODIs and two T20Is and will be played across February-March. The Afghanistan players will land in Dhaka on 12th February and then train in Sylhet for ten days before flying to Chattogram to participate in the ODI series beginning from February 23.

The Lahore phase of PSL will commence from 10th February. This puts the participation of Afghan players in doubt in the remainder of the matches. The Likes of Rashid Khan, Muhammad Nabi and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are part of the league playing for Lahore Qalandars (LQ), Karachi Kings (KK) and Islamabad United (IU) respectively.

No official statements from the franchises have come so far. Up till now, Recce Topley (IU), Joe Clarke (KK), Muhammad Amir (KK), Muhammad Ilyas (KK), Rovman Powell (MS), Odean Smith (MS), and Dominic Drakes (MS) have left the tournament.

Only two matches are left in the Karachi leg after which the league will begin in Lahore after a gap of two days. In the first match in Lahore, Peshawar Zalmi will take on Multan Sultans. The National Command and Operation Centre has approved 50% crowd to witness the matches in the stadium unlike in Karachi where only 25% were allowed.
