Jason Holder, West Indies Test skipper, will not be part of the inaugural season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The West Indian all-rounder took to twitter to thank Team Quetta Gladiators for picking him but conveyed that he didn’t get a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
“It’s true Holder won’t be playing PSL for Gladiators as his NOC has been rejected. We had been in contact with him for last several months and he wanted to be part of PSL. We understand that WICB want to strengthen their Test team and which is why his NOC have been rejected. In the meantime, Gladiators have an option to sign his replacement,”
a PSL official confirmed to The Express Tribune.
“Holder was an important part of our plans but what can we do now. We wish him good luck for his assignment while were delighted to sign such a brilliant replacement in the form of Perera who is a clever bowler and a big-hitter. Gladiators are lucky to have signed a true match-winner so its a win-win situation,” Nadeem stated.
