Narine will be seeing his medical team immediately and, depending on medical advice, is expected to join the squad later on in the tournament if cleared.
“We hope to have Narine with us as soon as possible because he is a true match winner,” said Quetta Gladiators coach Moin Khan.
“It’s a blow just before the start of HBL PSL but we will try to cope with it. We have got the depth in our squad as there are plenty other match-winners. We wish Narine a quick recovery and hope to welcome him very soon during HBL PSL.”
Gladiators have called upon Somerset leg-spinner Max Waller as his replacement for the initial stage of the competition
“Obviously, you cannot like for like replacement of a big player like Narine but we have drafted in Waller and we are confident that he will add value to our team,” said Moin.
The Gladiators will commence their PSL 2019 campaign on February 15 when they play last year’s finalists Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai.
