Quetta Gladiators, sitting at the top of the table and already qualified for the last four for the Super League of Pakistan (PSL) 2019, are waiting for the return of Sunil Narine.
Quetta Gladiators Are Waiting for the Return of Sunil Narine in the Final Phase of PSL
Speaking with a media outlet in Abu Dhabi, Gladiator’s media manager, Nabeel Hashmi, said initial scans had suggested Narine’s finger injury had deteriorated.
His ligaments look in bad shape however he is upbeat and going through physiotherapy and relevant medical procedure.
We are very clear, Narine will be picked even for the last couple of games, including the PSL4 final, if he gets fit and Quetta Gladiators qualify.
Nabeel said the gladiators would appreciate the return of Narine, as Shane Watson will not travel to Pakistan for the final phase of the tournament. He has been the best player of PSL 2019 racing so far.
However, he declined to make a specific statement on Watson’s availability, claiming that it was still 50-50.
The Gladiators’ media manager added that there were some problems with Narine’s bowling action, but he felt the situation was under control.
Yes the coaching staff of Quetta Gladiators raised questions over Narine’s bowling action but he remodelled his action and has been part of various leagues since then. Narine has been recalled in his national team too.
