Lahore Qalandars batsman Cameron Delport will miss at least the next game of the Pakistan Super League 2018 on account of his mother having passed away on Monday.

"It is with deep personal regret that I inform you that Cameron Delport's mother passed away today," a Lahore Qalandars spokesperson said. "Let us pray for the departed soul and for the bereaved family members. May God give him and his family the courage and strength to bear the loss.

"Cameron will be leaving to Durban for funeral tomorrow and will not be available for the next game."

Delport, 28, is part of the Qalandars squad that has lost all five games of PSL 2018, although he featured in just opening two matches of what eventually panned into a five-game losing streak, contributing 3 and 15 runs in his two outings.

With his team in a disarray and desperately in need of a change in fortunes, there was a good chance for Delport to be drafted back into the side for the March 8 clash with Islamabad United. However, the Durban native will now miss that game, having to flying off to his homeland.
