Multan Sultans Hit by Setback Ahead of PSL 9


With the excitement for the ninth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) mounting, Multan Sultans find themselves facing a significant setback. The team has received unfortunate news regarding the unavailability of two key fast bowlers for the upcoming tournament.

Firstly, English pace bowler Reece Topley has been ruled out from participating in the tournament. The England Cricket Board (ECB) has declined to grant a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for Topley, citing a minor injury issue as the reason for his absence.

Adding to the team’s woes, team owner Ali Khan Tareen confirmed in a recent podcast that promising talent Ihsanullah will also miss the entirety of PSL season nine due to injury.

“PCB has informed us that Ihsanullah will miss the entire PSL,” Ali said, confirming the unfortunate news.

In a previous interview with Cricket Pakistan, Ihsanullah detailed the circumstances surrounding his injury, which occurred during the New Zealand home series.

“The issue I faced occurred during the New Zealand home series, and it happened during Ramadan. On the first day, everything went well; there was no pain in my shoulder. However, on the second day, I fell, and I didn’t realize it at the time. Later, when I went to the nets for bowling, I felt pain in my elbow after putting extra force on the first ball. I played the series despite the pain,” Ihsanullah revealed.

Ihsanullah’s absence is a significant blow to Multan Sultans, as he emerged as a standout performer in the previous season, finishing as the second-highest wicket-taker with an impressive tally of 22 wickets in just 12 innings.
