The PCB has said that 70 percent of Faulkner’s money has been given and the rest will be given soon. Along with this, the PCB has also talked about not including Faulkner in the PSL in future.
Faulkner said – wanted to help Pakistan
Faulkner wrote in a tweet, ‘Sad to leave the league because I wanted to help bring international cricket back to Pakistan. There is a huge number of young talent here and the fans here are also fantastic. But the way I have been treated is humiliating.
