After not getting a place in any Pakistan Super League (PSL) team, Ahmed Shehzad has made a major decision about his future.

Taking to his X (formerly Twitter) account, Ahmed Shehzad said goodbye to PSL.

All the teams have completed their squads for season 9 of the Pakistan Super League during the drafting, but now some players will be selected in the supplementary as well. Ahmed Shehzad seems to be quite depressed for not being part of any team in the draft.


“A heartfelt goodbye to Pakistan Super League! I’m writing this note which I thought I wouldn’t be writing this year. Another PSL draft goes by and the same old story – didn’t get picked. God knows why, but they plan, and Allah plans. Indeed ALLAH is the best of Planners. I have tried hard by giving it all in the domestic circuit consistently in the last few years and did reasonably well in the National T20 Cup just before the PSL draft.”

“There seems a deliberate effort to keep me out, even when franchises have opted for other performers with inferior numbers than me. But when everything is pre-planned it doesn’t matter. I don’t know whose responsibility it is to get top domestic performers in the PSL then. But I exactly know the reasons why I’m not made part of the PSL – the whole country, and my fans will know it very soon.”

He wrote, “I’m parting ways and saying goodbye to Pakistan Super League for my own self-respect. I’ve never played for money and will never do it. While many chose international leagues across the globe, I decided to grind in the domestic circuit to prove my love for the game, and to wear the Green Flag again. I’m taking this decision to keep money out of it (was offered several contracts to play leagues yet chose Pakistan)”.

“I will not play the PSL again with these 6 teams. It seems like a shared responsibility to keep me away from PSL, and all franchises have shaken hands”.

“Lastly, I’m thankful for all the support I’ve received from my fans across the world. I can only assure one thing and that’s never giving in to unfair demands or accepting anything that lets my country down”.

“All I know is in this day and age being patriotic and putting your nation first goes against you. I’m thankful to Allah that I always stood firm on my moral responsibilities and have never let myself, my family, and my country down. If that’s the price I have to pay for my honesty and dedication, it’s a small price to pay and I will continue doing it. Pakistan Zindabad!”
