James Faulkner’s sudden exit stirs controversy

James Faulkner, the Australian all-rounder playing for the Quetta Gladiators has left the Pakistan Super League (PSL 7) suddenly due to being ‘ill-treated’ by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the PSL.

The 31-year-old announced his withdrawal following the board not fulfilling the contractual agreement/payment. He took to social media to express his disappointment at the tournament.

The all-rounder apologized to his fans in Pakistan for leaving the season like this. He said he tried his best to play a part in reviving cricket in Pakistan

The claims sound strange especially when PCB declared that they have paid the players 70% pay and promised to pay the rest after six weeks. According to the policy adopted by the board, early payment raises the value of the country and the tournament.

It is important to note that this is the first time such a claim has surfaced in PSL history. Only positive feedback has been received and this is a first-timer. The Quetta Gladiators are left with one more game in the league stage.
