Injury Forces Olly Stone Out of PSL 2024

Injury Forces Olly Stone Out of PSL 2024: The Multan Sultans face a substantial setback in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 as English fast bowler Olly Stone is ruled out due to a groin injury. The unfortunate incident occurred during a clash against Islamabad United on February 20, compelling Stone to exit the game prematurely after bowling just 3.4 overs and conceding 28 runs.

This development poses a challenge for the Sultans, who currently lead the points table with six points from three consecutive victories. The team is now on the lookout for a suitable replacement to sustain their winning momentum.

Originally enlisted as a substitute for Reece Topley, the English pacer who withdrew from the tournament, Olly Stone finds himself out of the PSL 9 roster due to a unfortunate groin injury.

With the void left by both Stone and Topley, the Sultans gear up for upcoming matches, including a highly anticipated game against Peshawar Zalmi. The team management has expressed their intent to seek a replacement player and is in the process of completing the necessary formalities to introduce a new face into the squad.

Among the potential candidates for the Sultans are New Zealand’s Trent Boult and Jimmy Neesham, both surprisingly unpicked in this season’s draft. Their inclusion could offer a significant boost to the team’s bowling attack and overall dynamics.

Led by captain Mohammad Rizwan, the Multan Sultans have exhibited exceptional form, securing convincing victories in their matches, including a notable win over Lahore Qalandars. As they navigate through this roster change, the Sultans aim to maintain their winning streak and further solidify their position in the PSL 2024.
