Pakistan and Peshawar Zalmi opener Imam-ul-Haq has apologised to Australia and Quetta Gladiators opening batsman Shane Watson after giving him a send-off in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final.

The incident occurred in the third over of the Gladiators’ chase of 139 when Watson was run out by Umar Amin for seven runs.

Imam was heavily criticised for his behaviour, which prompted him to apologise to Watson and admit that what happened took place in the “heat of the moment”.

“Yesterday’s incident happened in the heat of the moment. My reaction to Watson’s inappropriate abusive comments was avoidable, for which I apologise. It was a good match and a great HBL PSL 2019, let’s enjoy its success. Congrats to [the] Gladiators and Watson for the trophy and awards,” Imam said on Twitter.

The Gladiators won the match by eight wickets and were crowned PSL champions for the first time.
