We are disappointed that he won’t be able to play for us and he is disappointed he won’t have the opportunity to get some more games in for us. He asked us to thank the fans for their support and wish the team all the best for the remaining three game. We thank him for making the commitment to come to Australia at short notice, and wish him all the best with his cricket going forward.”
Hasan Ali Wants To Do Well
Pacer Hasan Ali on the other hand while expressing the desire to do well for his franchise i.e. Islamabad United during the upcoming season of PSL said, ”Preparations are in full swing and I am really excited to for the tournament. I will try my best not to let down Islamabad United fans. We gave record performance in league stage last year but couldn’t do well in playoffs. We have analysed what we did wrong then and will do our best not to repeat those mistakes this time and give it all to win the trophy. Whenever I’m playing cricket, my target is to give my best for the team I am representing. Same is my goal in this PSL and I want to become the top wicket-taker of the tournament.”
