Australian cricketer Faulkner exposes Pakistan Cricket Board

at 9:08 pm

Islamabad: Australian cricket star James Faulkner today exposed Pakistan Cricket Board and left it red-faced, saying his contract for Pakistan Super League (PSL) was not honoured and payments were not made to him.

Frustrated with “lies” of Pakistan Cricket Board, he abruptly quit the PSL today.

He posted tweets, apologising to Pakistan cricket fans and calling his treatment at the hands of the PCB and the PSL “a disgrace”.

“I apologise to the Pakistan cricket fans. But unfortunately I’ve had to withdraw from the last 2 matches and leave the @thePSLt20 due to the @TheRealPCB not honouring my contractual agreement/payments.

“I’ve been here the whole duration and they have continued to lie to me.

“It hurts to leave as I wanted to help to get international cricket back in Pakistan as there is so much young talent and the fans are amazing.

“But the treatment I have received has been a disgrace from the @TheRealPCB and @thePSLt20. I’m sure you all understand my position,” Faulkner tweeted.

The PCB, in response, tried to rubbish theĀ  Australian great.

Faulkner is in Quetta Gladiators team but hasn’t played last three games, agitated over the payment issue.

According to reports, he got so angry yesterday that he threw his bat and helmet from the lobby floor balcony onto a hotel chandelier following a discussion with a PCB official before leaving for the airport.

However, he paid the hotel for damages before leaving.

The PCB released a joint statement with Quetta Gladiators, calling Faulkner’s allegations baseless and expressing dismay at his “reprehensible behaviour”.
