The skipper of Lahore Qalandars Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out of the rest of the PSL 4 due to the thumb injury.
Hafeez sustained a thumb injury in their much-anticipated contest against Karachi Kings on Saturday at Dubai.
The 38-year old left the field and AB de Villiers led the Qalandars side in his absence and steered his side to the first victory of PSL 4.
Qalandars have played two games so far, where they lost one against Islamabad united and won against Karachi Kings.
Lahore Qalandars will take on Peshawar Zalmi on Sunday at Dubai.
