Lahore Qalandars’ star player, Rashid Khan will not be taking part in the remainder of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7 due to international commitments. Rashid has been an integral part of Qalandars’ squad in their magnificent run in the campaign and was a crucial part of their world-class bowling unit.
Rashid shares a good camaraderie with the rest of his teammates and is considered one of the leaders in the dressing room. Rashid had an emotional send-off from his Lahore teammates as they offered him a guard of honor in his last match in the competition on Saturday against Islamabad.
The 23-year old shared a heartfelt message with his teammates in the dressing room after his last match. Rashid said that he will forever be grateful to Lahore for picking him in PSL and he is always available for them no matter which category they pick him in.
The platinum star said that for him the category does not matter as he feels a part of Lahore’s family.
“I told Sameen Bhai [Qalandars manager] before the game today as well. For me, in the draft category doesn’t matter, if he picks me in the lowest category, he needs me in that category, I will make sure I will be available in that category,” Rashid stated.
