Afghanistan Pacer Naveen-ul-Haq Ditches PSL for BPL

Afghanistan fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq has opted out of the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for ‘personal reasons.’

Naveen was picked by Quetta Gladiators in the Silver category during the PSL 7 draft on 12 December.

His manager, Kaustav Lahiri announced the news in a Twitter post on Saturday.

“I would like to confirm that Naveen pulled out of the PSL for some personal reasons. PSL is a fantastic competition and we look forward to being part of it in the future,” he wrote on Twitter.

Later, the fast bowler also confirmed the development on his official Twitter handle.

“Sad to be missing out from the PSL. Hopefully will play sometime in the future,” Naveen said on Twitter.

Interestingly, the 22-year-old seamer joined Khulna Tigers for the eighth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) that collides with PSL this year.

The league starts on 21 January, seven days before the PSL, and ends on 21 February, exactly one week before the final of the PSL in Lahore.

Gladiators will now look to pick Naveen’s replacement in the mini draft expected to take place on 7 January.
