Quetta Gladiators all-rounder Luke Wright was a victim of hate messages on Twitter after he, along with England compatriots and Quetta teammates Kevin Pietersen and Tymal Mills, pulled out of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in Lahore on March 5.

Quetta Gladiators qualified for the final on Tuesday after beating Peshawar Zalmi by just one run in their play-off tie.

However, the Grantham-born later announced that he won’t take part in the final game of the tournament due to security concerns.

The 31-year-old received a lot of hate filled messages in response to his tweets and he chose to respond to one of them.

Wright has represented England in 50 ODIs and 51 T20Is throughout his career. Nevertheless, he only played once for Gladiators in the current PSL season, that too in the play-off round, where he scored 12 runs and did not bowl.
