West Indies batsman Chris Gayle has left for international duty, after participating in two games of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He returned due to the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
The Caribbean giant played the first two matches for the Quetta Gladiators. However, the team lost the first two matches of the tournament. Despite failing in the first match, Gayle batted well against Lahore Qalandars in the second match and played an innings of 68 runs from 40 balls. Quetta also lost to Karachi Kings in their face-off.
The swashbuckling batsman was sad to leave the team at an early stage of the tournament, however, he has vowed to rejoin the team on the second stage.
“It's sad that I have to leave PSL because I wanted to play the full season. I wanted to come here and dominate the PSL. I wanted to give the fans something to cheer about, I'm looking forward to visiting Lahore for the second stage,” said Gayle after the match.
He also supported his team to make a comeback in the tournament despite losing the first two games.
He added, “Two defeats is not what we wanted, but it’s early stage of the tournament so hopefully we can pick ourselves up and rebound and forget about these two games and come back strong.”
