Fast bowler Hasan Ali has pulled out of the remainder of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) due to family reasons, confirmed the Islamabad United. The pacer has been a key performer for his franchise in the tournament with 10 wickets to his name in six games at an impressive average of 14.
“I want to say to all Islamabad United fans, unfortunately, due to personal reasons I have to pull out of the remaining PSL matches,” Hasan was quoted as saying in Islamabad´s statement.
“Some things are more important than cricket and nothing is more important than family. I am thankful to Islamabad United for their support and understanding. This team truly is a family that stands with you through thick and thin. I wish the team very best of luck for the remaining PSL matches.”
Islamabad’s skipper Shadab Khan said that Hasan Ali’s loss is a big blow to the team but the franchise understands the bowler’s situation right now.
“He will obviously be a huge loss to our team and the tournament, but some things are more important than cricket. At Islamabad United we have always looked after each other like a family and we will continue to do so,” Khan said.
Islamabad United is set to take on Lahore Qalandars today. With four wins and two losses, Islamabad United are placed at the second position and a win in today’s game will help them topple Lahore Qalandars and settle at the helm of the points table.
