Taking to Twitter, Faulkner said "I apologize to Pakistani cricket fans. But unfortunately I had to withdraw from the last two matches and leave @thePSLt20 due to @TheRealPCB not honouring my contractual agreement/payments," he said in a tweet.”

I apologise to the Pakistan cricket fans.
But unfortunately I’ve had to withdraw from the last 2 matches and leave the @thePSLt20 due to the @TheRealPCB not honouring my contractual agreement/payments.
I’ve been here the whole duration and they have continued to lie to me.
Faulkner said it "hurts" to leave because he wanted to "help" bring international cricket back to Pakistan.
The 31-year-old Faulkner added "It pains me to leave because I wanted to help bring international cricket back to Pakistan as there is so much young talent and the fans are amazing.

It hurts to leave as I wanted to help to get international cricket back in Pakistan as there is so much young talent and the fans are amazing.
But the treatment I have received has been a disgrace from the @TheRealPCB and @thePSLt20
I’m sure you all understand my position.
On the other hand, PCB denied the accusation, levelled by Faulkner, as the board stated on Twitter: “The PCB and Quetta Gladiators have regretfully taken note of Mr James Faulkner's false and misleading accusations and will shortly be releasing a detailed statement on the matter”.
