Dubai: This is to inform all colleagues of press and media that Lahore Qalandars’ player AB de Villiers will not be able to rejoin the squad due to an injury.
It was initially decided that AB will return to join the squad for Qalandars final two league games but following a back injury, he has been advised rest by doctors.
“It’s a disappointing news for Lahore Qalandars management and its fans that AB de Villiers will not be able to make it for Pakistan’s leg of PSL but we wish him a speedy recover . He is a wonderful player and an amazing person ,” Sameen Rana, the manager of Lahore Qalandars said in a statement.
Any update on replacement, if any, will be communicated in due course.
De Villiers said: I am very disappointed that I will not be able to play in front of the passionate Pakistani cricket fans. I saw my doctor who has advised complete rest for two weeks and, unfortunately, that rules me out of the games in Karachi. I hope to be a part of the HBL PSL next year and very much hope to play my part in the return of international cricket to the country. I am backing Lahore Qalandars to go all the way and win the trophy this year.
