However, the star all-rounder is set to miss only the initial stage of the tournament and is expected to be back after the nursing the injury. Till then, Somerset leg-spinner Max Waller has been drafted as the cover for him.
In the bowling ranks, Gladiators have Sohail Tanvir, Harry Gurney, Fawad Ahmed, G Muddassar and M Nawaz.
Last year runner-ups Peshawar Zalmi would be eyeing their second title win when they begin their PSL 2019 campaign on Thursday against the Gladiators.
