Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan is unlikely to feature in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine after undergoing lower-back surgery.

Afghanistan head coach Jonathan Trott said the team management will carefully handle Rashid’s injury.

Rashid didn’t participate in the Big Bash League (BBL), SA20 and now the three-T20I series against India. He is traveling with the team but isn’t fully fit yet.

“It is a case of us making sure that we are really careful with his back,” Trott said. “He is such an influential player, we have to make sure he is 100% ready and not rush him back from that type of surgery. It is important to give him the right time and he is working extremely hard and he is here with the team.

“He is very passionate and dedicated to the Afghan national side. When he is ready, he will be the first one to get on the field. He has got a few more appointments and check-ups to make sure everything is okay. So there is no real time frame. I hope it is sooner rather than later. But there is no pressure and no rush.”

Remember, PSL 9 will start at PCB’s headquarters in Lahore. The opening match will feature the two-time champions and current titleholders, Lahore Qalandars, facing off against Islamabad United, winners of the 2016 and 2018 editions.

This premier cricketing event will be played across four cities—Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Rawalpindi—culminating in the final at the National Bank Stadium in Karachi on March 18. The tournament, featuring six teams, will consist of 34 T20 matches.
