Charles joins Multan Sultans as replacement of Pooran


Windies wicket-keeper batsman Johnson Charles has joined Multan Sultans as the replacement of Nicholas Pooran for the upcoming fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) starting from February 14 at Dubai International Stadium.

Pooran will not be available for the season as he has been called up in the Windies ODI side against England. Charles will join Multan’s squad in Dubai where the team will start training ahead of the tournament.

Multan’s management is disappointed on Pooran’s exclusion from the league as the young left-handed batsman keeps the ability to hit the ball big coming top the order.

“It is a big loss for us but Charle’s inclusion in the side will probably fill in for Pooran,” they said.

Charles is also delighted on once again becoming a part of the PSL and looking forward to join a strong looking squad of Multan.

“I can’t wait to be there in Dubai where we will play an all exciting PSL,” said Charles who last time played for Quetta Gladiators where he at times showed courage by playing a couple of exciting innings.

“I am ready to amuse the PSL’s audience with hitting sixes and fours,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention here that Charles plays leagues all around the world. He has played 135 T20s scoring 3107 runs at an average of 24.08. Charles has a decent strike rate of 125.28.
