In what comes as a big blow for the Multan Sultans ahead of the Pakistan Super League 2024, the left-arm pacer Reece Topley has been ruled out for the entire season.
The English pacer recently played for the Durban Super Giants in SA20, where he picked up 13 wickets in 12 matches at an economy rate of 8.44 and a strike rate of 18.
However, there are now reports that Topley has sustained an injury, yet to be disclosed, and will not be able to take part in the entire Pakistan Super League 2024 season.
Reece Topley plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL, who secured his services for INR 1.90 Crore in IPL 2023 auction. The England pacer had to cut short his IPL 2023 appearance for RCB due to a shoulder injury.
It will be interesting to see if he completes his recovery before IPL 2024 kicks off and takes part in the tournament, as RCB, which already looks weak in the bowling lineup, will surely need his services.
Multan Sultans were the runners-up from the last season, having lost to the Lahore Qalandars in the finals of the PSL 2023 season.
This year, they will kick off their campaign against Karachi Kings on Sunday, February 18 at Multan Cricket Stadium.
