SHARJAH: Foreign cricketers playing for the Quetta Gladiators have refused to play the final of the Pakistan Super League to be held in Lahore’s Qaddahi Cricket Stadium, reports private TV channel.
Kevin Pietersen, a key player of the Gladiators, has left UAE shortly after his team beat Peshawar Zalmi to qualify for the final. Luke Wright, Tymal Mills have also excused themselves from playing in Pakistan. The final is scheduled to be held on March 5.
Cricket authorities decided to hold the final of second edition of the Pakistan Super League in Lahore in an effort to restore international cricket in the country which was dealt a blow by militant attack on Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009.
