Foreign cricketers and commentators shared heartfelt message before their departure from Pakistan, after the coronavirus pandemic brought an abrupt end to the fifth edition of HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL).
South African commentator Kass Naidoo posted a video on her Twitter account, in which she along with former Australia cricketer Michael Slater and presenter Erin Holland thanked the fans and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a great PSL season on behalf of the entire commentary team.
“There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude to the people of Pakistan for welcoming us with open arms as cricket returned to this beautiful country. We will be back again,” Naidoo tweeted.
Lahore Qalandars hard-hitting batsman Ben Dunk also appreciated his franchise for their support and expressed his desire to be back again.
“There’s more to life then cricket. A big thank you to Lahore Qalandars for an amazing PSL. Hopefully see you all again soon. Look after each other,” Dunk tweeted.
Karachi Kings head coach Dean Jones, in his departing message on Twitter, declared his team’s fans the best group of fans in the league.
“A huge thanks to the Karachi Kings fans for your love and support. The best fans in the PSL. Thank you to my Team. What a great bunch of cricketers and more importantly men. Until next year, the BLUE Book is closed,” Jones tweeted.
Meanwhile, Multan Sultans all-rounder Ravi Bopara proposed a unique idea to decide the winners of this season.
“As the elderly are more vulnerable to the Coronavirus, it’s only fair the oldest average age team in the PSL 5 to take the trophy,” Bopara tweeted.
