“Shaheen has been suffering from fever for the last couple of days, and he also played yesterday’s match with a fever,” said Shahid.
“If you have fever, then I don’t think you should play, but he [Shaheen] wanted to win the match and then rest until the final,” he added.
Shaheen has taken 14 wickets in 10 PSL 8 matches with an economy rate of 8.61.
Tonight’s match is important for Lahore Qalandars as they will face Peshawar Zalmi once again in the Eliminator 2 to determine who will play the final of the PSL 8 against Multan Sultans.
