KARACHI, Feb 23 (https://mmnews.tv): West Indies' Chris Gayle and Afghanistan's Rashid Khan have left the Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition six due to international commitments.

Both the players had a terrific start to the tournament as Gayle smashed a half-century and Rashid Khan was influential in Lahore's rise to the top of the PSL points table.

Gayle has been selected in West Indies T20I squad for the series against Sri Lanka, but he is hopeful of coming back after fulfilling his international duties. "It is sad to leave because I wanted to play the full PSL," he said.

"Unfortunately, I have to leave for international duties but Lahore is there and that's the second stage of second round. So you know still a lot of cricket to play so I'm looking forward to actually you know visit Lahore as well," he added.

Gayle is currently the highest scorer in the tournament with 107 runs in two innings, including a wonderful half-century against Lahore Qalandars last night.

Rashid Khan will also be heading out for international duties as Afghanistan and Zimbabwe are scheduled to play a Test series in the UAE. Khan bowled superbly in the two matches he has played and also contributed with the bat.
