The two teams qualifying for Pakistan Super League (PSL) final will each have four foreign players, said a top cricket official, hours after three foreign players excused themselves from playing the final in Lahore.

Najam Sethi , chairman of the league, said the players will be selected from a pool of platinum, diamond and gold categories.

Earlier the trio of Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright and Tymal Mills – who play for Quetta Gladiators - took to twitter to announce their departure from the second edition of the Pakistan Super League.
