Cricketer Naseem Shah has shared an emotional message on Twitter after being ruled out of Pakistan Super League 2021 for violating the COVID-19 protocols.
Shah was playing for the PSL’s franchise–Quetta Gladiators. “I want to play cricket. My life is cricket,” Shah wrote on Twitter while responding to the decision taken by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
He further said that he had worked hard and he was excited for the PSL. “I cannot express (in words) how I am feeling,” he added while remembering his late mother as he posted a photo with a message: if my mother had still been alive, I would have shared my sorrows with her.
However, he also expressed hopes for his comeback in the game.
The PCB on Monday stated that the fast bowler would not be travelling to Abu Dhabi on May 26 and “is now out of the competition”.
According to the board’s statement, the pacer arrived at the designated hotel with a non-compliant RT-PCR test result (which was a prerequisite for departure from Pakistan).
Moreover, Shahid Afridi, Multan Sultan’s all-rounder, was also ruled out of the tournament due to a back injury.
