“It’s obviously hugely disappointing that Hashim will not be donning the Six-Gun Grill WP colors this season, he would have been a huge asset to the team on and off the field, especially working with the group of talented young batsmen we have at our disposal,” Michael Canterbury, WPCA CEO, mentioned.
“I want to thank Hashim and his representatives for the open interaction over these past couple of weeks. We all know Hashim is one of our greatest ever players in South Africa and we would have loved nothing more than to see him representing WP, but we fully understand his reasoning and wish him luck with whatever comes next for him and his family.”
