Hassan Khan and Noor Ahmed Join Quetta Gladiators

Quetta Gladiators have suffered a major setback as all-rounder Muhammad Nawaz got injured ahead of their first match of the second leg. Since the all-rounder has been ruled out of the remaining matches of PSL 7, Quetta Gladiators have announced Hassan Khan as his replacement.

According to reports, Muhammad Nawaz has got navicular bone fracture. It is a big loss for Quetta Gladiators as Muhammad Nawaz was aiding the team in both batting and bowling. Scoring quick runs at the end and picking up crucial wickets, Muhammad Nawaz was a primary part of the Gladiators squad. 27-year-old was also included in the Test squad for the historic home series against Australia. However, he will now miss the series due to a fracture in his foot.
