The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned James Faulkner from associating with Pakistan Super League editions due to his bad behaviour and destruction of property.
The Australian had accused the board and Quetta Gladiators of not clearing his payment and decided to go back to Australia with two matches in hand.
After the tweets, PCB released a detailed statement accusing the Australian all-rounder of gross misconduct. The PCB accused him of destructing hotel properties and abusing airport officials.
“In wake of the above, and taking serious note of Mr James Faulkner’s gross misconduct that was an attempt to bring the PCB, Pakistan cricket and the HBL Pakistan Super League into disrepute, it has been unanimously agreed by the PCB and the franchises that Mr James Faulkner will not be drafted in future HBL Pakistan Super League events,”– said PCB in a statement
