Islamabad United's fast-bowler Hasan Ali has decided not to pull out of the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League's sixth edition, he announced it on Monday.

The player said that he is thankful to his wife for supporting him in times of crisis. 

He was earlier supposed to fly back to Pakistan from Abu Dhabi due to some family issues but has now retracted the decision.

On Saturday evening, the franchise had announced that Hasan Ali would be pulling out of the remainders of PSL 6 due to "family concerns."

The 26-year-old had played two games in Abu Dhabi and taken four wickets — two each against Lahore and Quetta Gladiators.

Hasan, in a message sent to the media, had said that some things are more important than cricket.

“I want to say to all Islamabad United fans, unfortunately, due to personal reasons I have to pull out of the remaining PSL matches. Some things are more important than cricket and nothing is more important than family,” Hasan said.

“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,” he had added.
