Karachi : England's Kevin Pietersen will end his professional cricket career after the Pakistan Super League's third edition, which begins in Dubai on Thursday.
Pietersen will represent Quetta Gladiators in the PSL. The dashing batsman posted a photo of him on Instagram, hugging his son before leaving to join the Gladiators in Dubai.
"Countless goodbyes to Jessica Taylor and my kids as a cricket player and this one this evening is the last one I'll ever have to do. I've hated every goodbye but also known it's work so just gotten on with it," Pietersen said, hinting that the end is near.
"The journey has been absolutely amazing and for the next three/four weeks I'll be a current professional and then it's chapter closed! Had my time and loved it but the endless goodbyes and travel need to calm down now."
"Cricket has been the best!" he said.
