Carlos Brathwaite, originally drafted as Pollard’s replacement, to stay with Peshawar Zalmi

Carlos Brathwaite will stay with Peshawar Zalmi for the complete duration of the HBL Pakistan Super League 2020 after Kieron Pollard was ruled out of the tournament due to a niggle in his right thigh.

Pollard, who was expected to join the Zalmi squad after the conclusion of West Indies tour of Sri Lanka, is experiencing occasional tightness at his right rectus femoris quad muscle because of an injury sustained earlier.

Braithwaite was originally called-up as a cover for Pollard till 6 March.

Kieron Pollard said: “With a heavy heart I wish my teammates at Peshawar Zalmi all the best for the remainder of the HBL Pakistan Super League 2020.

“I’m sorry I can’t be there in person this year but the team has some inspirational characters leading the charge and I’m sure can give Daren [Sammy] his first trophy as a head coach.”

Pollard had turned out in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 editions of the HBL PSL. In 33 HBL PSL matches, the West Indian scored 650 runs, which include three half-centuries, at a strike-rate of 166.24.

Peshawar Zalmi’s upcoming group fixtures:

Tuesday, 10 March – Lahore Qalandars v Peshawar Zalmi, Qaddafi Stadium

Friday, 13 March – Multan Sultans v Peshawar Zalmi, National Stadium
