Hasan Ali has decided not to play in other matches of the Pakistani Super League. He played two games after the continuation of the league, and it is certain that their team will miss a player like this. But he is grateful for the understanding of the team and the fans and believes that there are still some things that are more important than cricket at the moment.
"I want to say to all Islamabad United fans, unfortunately, due to personal reasons I have to pull out of the remaining PSL matches," Hasan said, as quoted by cricbuzz "Some things are more important than cricket and nothing is more important than family."
"I am thankful to Islamabad United for their support and understanding. This team truly is a family that stands with you through thick and thin. I wish the team the very best of luck for the remaining PSL matches."
Most of the team is sad about his departure and they are aware of how much they will miss him in the continuation of the championship
Khan feels sad
Captain Shadab Khan, is also aware that some things are primary, and that family always comes first.
There is great cohesion in the team, which is evident after Khan's statements "We understand Hassan's situation right now, family always comes first. We wish Hassan the very best of luck. He will obviously be a huge loss to our team and the tournament, but some things are more important than cricket."
"At Islamabad United we have always looked after each other like a family and we will continue to do so," Shadab said. Islamabad United Owner, Ali Naqvi agrees with the majority and also believes that family is more important than anything else.
Islamabad will now try to achieve the necessary victories, which will certainly be harder for them without Alli, but given the quality of Islamabad, they will have a good chance to achieve their goals "Unfortunately Hassan will be leaving the group in the coming days."
"He has been a great leader and performer for the franchise this season, but we have always had the belief in Islamabad United that our professional commitments are subservient to our personal commitments." "When we say we are a family we truly mean it, and nothing is more important to a person than his family. We wish Hassan the best of luck, and we wholeheartedly support this decision."
