Taking to his Twitter, Sikandar shared his opinion on Faulkner’s incident which rubbished the latter’s claims about payment issues and also claimed that his false allegations will not affect Australia’s historic tour to Pakistan.

1. Payment was never an issue @thePSLt20 and no Overseas player has ever complained.
2. Hosting PSL in 🇵🇰 over the last couple of years have proved that it’s safe and @TheRealPCB is hosting it successfully
3. Anyone suggesting that this will jeopardize Aus tour are delusional

In his three-point tweet, Sikandar further stated that the successful hosting of the PSL in Pakistan over a couple of years has proved that Pakistan is a safe country.
“Hosting PSL in [Pakistan] over the last couple of years have proved that it’s safe and [The PCB] is hosting it successfully,” he concluded.
