However, Rashid will not be available for Lahore Qalandars’ first five games of the campaign. Afghanistan is likely to play a series against Bangladesh during the first five matches of the tournament.

Therefore, Rashid, along with other Afghanistan players, might miss the start of the PSL. Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb-ur-Rehman are the other two Afghanistan players, which were picked up in the high profile draft.
The number one T20 bowler in the world is one of the hottest picks in T20 cricket. Having played for top franchises in various leagues around the world, Rashid’s inclusion in Lahore Qalandars’ will provide them with the impetus to go on and lift their first-ever PSL trophy.
Rashid Khan’s record in T20 cricket is exceptional. He has picked up 341 wickets at an average of 17.39 and an economy rate of 6.28 in 246 T20 matches.
