Three English players of the Quetta Gladiators — Kevin Pietersen, Tymal Mills and Luke Wright —announced on Wednesday that they will not be participating in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final to be played in Lahore on March 5.
Luke Wright said in a tweet that he has a “young family” and for him the game was not “worth the risk”. “It’s with a heavy heart I will not be coming to Lahore,” he tweeted.
Pietersen bid goodbye to Dubai, saying he would be returning to his family in London.
Mills too said in a Twitter note that he would not be attending the final match.
Quetta Gladiators qualified for the finals on Tuesday after conquering Peshawar Zalmi by one run in Sharjah.
Meanwhile, a senior official of the Quetta Gladiators told DawnNews that the three English players had officially informed the team management about their decision to not travel to Lahore for the final.
