Lahore Qalandars' pacer Haris Rauf ruled out of the remainder of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) after suffering a dislocated shoulder during a narrow defeat against Karachi Kings yesterday.

He fell awkwardly on his shoulder in the 20th over while completing a stunning catch to dismiss Hasan Ali. Despite the injury, he walked off with his arm strapped and underwent scans.

“As a team, we are deeply saddened by Haris Rauf's injury. It was painful to see him missing out as he's been a pillar of strength for us, and his absence will be felt. In the face of adversity, we stand united, and I have full confidence that the team will rise to the occasion,” Shaheen Afridi, captain of Lahore Qalandars said.

“It's indeed a setback for the franchise, but he is also Pakistan's main bowler, and with a lot of cricket coming up, a pragmatic approach was to give him maximum time to recover. Wishing him a speedy recovery, and we eagerly await his return to the field stronger than ever. Our thoughts and support are with him during this challenging time" he added.

The medical panel, after consultation, concluded that he needs four to six weeks to recover, forcing him to miss the PSL season.
