Depending on medical advice, Narine is expected to join the squad later on in the tournament.
“We hope to have Narine with us as soon as possible because he is a true mach winner,” said Quetta Gladiators coach Moin Khan.
“It’s a blow just before the start of HBL PSL but we will try to cope with it. We have got the depth in our squad as there are plenty other match-winners. We wish Narine a quick recovery and hope to welcome him very soon during HBL PSL.”
To cover for this injury, Gladiators have called up Somerset leg-spinner Max Waller. The 30-year-old Englishman has 111 wickets in T20 career at 23.14. Waller took 16 wickets in as many games in the last T20 Blast season.
“Obviously, you cannot like for like replacement of a big player like Narine but we have drafted in Waller and we are confident that he will add value to our team ,” said Moin.
