Prior to the third edition of Pakistan Super League, Lahore Qalandars have lost the services of all-rounder Bilawal Bhatti who was roped into the side in season 2 and was retained in the drafts conducted for the third season.
Bilawal Bhatti is out of the whole tournament after suffering a shoulder injury and has been replaced by the uncapped local all-rounder Agha Salman. Lahore would not worry a lot about Bilawal’s absence as they have options in form of Amir Yamin and Sohail Akhtar.
Agha Salman is considered as a fantastic T20 product in Lahore region. He featured in only 17 T20s, but has done reasonably well. With a batting average of 26.42, Salman has a batting strike rate of 138.05. Picking 19 wickets in 17 games at an economy of less than six, he is witty with ball and offers a complete package to an already dangerous squad of Lahore Qalandars who will begin their campaign on February 23rd against Multan Sultans.
