The highly rated Afghan leg-spinner Qais Ahmed was picked in the Gold category by Multan Sultans in the players draft. Sultans were happy with the pick but he got a call-up from the team and Multan Sultans started to seek the replacement with just a few days remaining in the PSL 2019.
New Replacement for the Leg-Spinner
Multan Sultans didn’t waste time to pick the replacement and have signed the Aussie player – Chris Green. The 25-year old will replace Afghanistan leg-spinner, Qais Ahmed. Green has scored 374 runs and picked up 40 wickets in 52 T20 matches and that surely is a good pick by Sultans. He will be available for the entire tournament as a Silver category player on the Multan Sultans team roster. Previously Chris Green was part of the Quetta Gladiators but he has not made his PSL debut so far.

Chris Green has been signed by Multan Sultans as a replacement player for Dan Christian and James Vince at the start of the PSL and then when Andre Russell leaves after they arrive he will become a replacement player for him #PSL2019

Green is a pretty good player and has been performing in BBL and CPL. Very canny off spinner who can hit at the end.
