Young star Shehzad will represent QG in the remaining matches of the PSL 7.

Mohammad Shehzad’s brilliant performance had led Pakistan to victory against India in the 2022  U-19 Asia Cup.

The development comes as the Australian cricketer announced his abrupt departure from PSL that later resulted in a ban imposed on him by PCB and PSL franchises.

A day earlier, PCB issued a statement refuting James Faulkner‘s allegations of non-payment and announced the decision that he will not be drafted in future editions of the Pakistan Super League.

 A tweet from the Australian cricketer had left everyone in shock that he has withdrawn from PSL 7.

Taking to Twitter, Faulkner said “I apologize to Pakistani cricket fans. But unfortunately, I had to withdraw from the last two matches and leave @thePSLt20 due to @TheRealPCB not honouring my contractual agreement/payments.”
