Liam Dawson, the all-rounder of Lahore Qalandars, will miss the remainder of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight due to an ankle injury. Dawson suffered the injury during Qalandars' clash against Karachi Kings on Sunday and was taken to a local hospital, where doctors advised him to take four to six weeks of rest. Qalandars confirmed the news on Twitter and wished him a speedy recovery. Dawson will now travel back to England to undergo rehabilitation.
The absence of Dawson will be a big blow to Qalandars, who are currently in second place in the PSL 8 standings with six points. He had played a key role in the team's success so far, scoring 80 runs and taking six wickets in six matches. Qalandars are yet to announce a replacement for Dawson, and it remains to be seen who will fill his shoes in the remaining matches.
Qalandars will take on Quetta Gladiators on Tuesday, and the absence of Dawson will be felt by the team. However, Qalandars have a strong squad and will be looking to continue their good form in the tournament. Quetta Gladiators, on the other hand, are struggling in the tournament and are currently in fifth place with four points. They will be hoping to turn their fortunes around with a win against Qalandars.
The PSL 8 has been an exciting tournament so far, with some thrilling matches and individual performances. The tournament has been a great platform for young and experienced players to showcase their skills and earn recognition. With the business end of the tournament approaching, the competition is expected to get even more intense, and the teams will be looking to give their best and secure a place in the playoffs.
