Quetta Gladiators has announced the partial replacement for their side before PSL began.
Chris Gayle, who was the first picked for the PSL squad of Quetta Gladiators, have left his franchise team for his national duty against Sri Lanka. West Indies will be hosting Sri Lanka for three T20Is, three ODIs and two Test matches. Chris Gayle will be part of the white-ball series.

Chris Gayle returned to Pakistan after almost 15 years, with the last time he came in late 2006 when West Indies toured Pakistan for a series of three Test match and five ODI matches.
“It was good to be in Pakistan after 15 years. I did not get a full house based on restrictions, but it was good to see some people. It was good to have a blast & I am looking forward to continuing playing in Pakistan upon my return to the PSL”
He further expressed that he was sad to leave PSL midway, but will return to Lahore leg of the tournament.
“It’s sad to leave you know because I want it to play full PSL. Lahore is there, so I’m looking forward to actually visit Lahore.”
