KARACHI: Pakistan Super League team Quetta Gladiators suffered another hurricane on Saturday when Australian cricketer Brad Hodge decided to quit from the league due to serious family reasons.
Hodge was selected by PSL as replacement of England’s Moeen Ali who also quit from the event, hours after being picked in place of West Indian Carlos Brathwaite.
This is an unfortunate situation, but certain family circumstances have forced 42-year-old T20 specialist Brad Hodge to not participate in the league,” said an official on condition of anonymity.
A Quetta Gladiator source confirmed that the Brad Hodge is the latest to fall out from the league, adding that they are in discussion for the fresh replacement for the PSL which starts on February 9th.
Although, the replacement has not been officially decided, but Geo.tv understands that the absence will be covered by two players as Quetta is keen to have Afghanistan’s Muhammad Nabi on board for the period he is available to the team.
They’re also in contact with Bangladeshi cricketer Mahmoodullah.
“Replacement hasn’t been finalized and there is no official comment on it,” the official added.
