Sarfaraz Ahmed, captain of the Quetta Gladiators, has been ruled out of today’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight match against Peshawar Zalmi due to a finger injury.
In the absence of Sarfaraz, Mohammad Nawaz will lead Quetta, while Bismillah Khan has been named as the wicketkeeper’s replacement.
Sarfaraz will miss a match for Quetta for the first time in the league’s history, having joined the team in the inaugural season.
Sarfaraz was taken to a local hospital for scans after being struck on the left ring finger by a delivery by pacer Naseem Shah during Monday’s match against Karachi Kings.
Although there is no fracture, the former Pakistan captain is still in pain, according to reports.
It should be noted that Sarfaraz was unable to continue wicketkeeping duties for the final 2.2 overs of the innings because of the aforementioned injury. For the remainder of the innings, backup wicketkeeper Umar Akmal stood behind the stumps in his place.
Sarfaraz took painkillers, but when his team needed him to come out with the bat, he arrived at the crease. In order to prevent the injury from worsening, his finger was also tightly bandaged.
Martin Guptill once again displayed his dominance and guided Gladiators to a four-wicket victory after scoring his first PSL century, and that too against Kings, in their previous match this season.
