“We respect their decisions to move on for career purposes and we would like to place on record our thanks for their commitment and effort over the last four years. On behalf of PCB, we would also want thank them for their excellent contribution in the development of the Pakistan Super League, which is now one of the most respected domestic T20 leagues in the world,” he said.
