Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed said Australia left-arm seamer James Faulkner “proved his mettle” in PSL 6.
Faulkner had been playing for the Quetta Gladiators in PSL 7, which is the team that Sarfaraz captains.
He took six wickets in six matches at an average of 32.66 and an economy rate of 9.80.
“James Faulkner proved his mettle in the previous edition of the PSL as well,” Sarfaraz told Cricket Pakistan.
Despite having done well, Faulkner’s PSL campaign ended in shocking circumstance as following an alleged payment dispute, he threw his bat and helmet onto a hotel chandelier.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said it “later also received reports and complaints from the immigration authorities that Mr Faulkner had acted inappropriately and abusively at the airport”.
The board further announced that Faulkner won’t be permitted to be part of future PSL drafts.
