Lahore, Mar 1 (IBNS): Four foreign players, including British batsman Kevin Pietersen, have announced they will not play in the PSL final in Pakistan's Lahore city.

Pietersen posted on his Twitter page: "I'll pick that up in London tomorrow. Bye bye Dubai! Your weather was but the golf was . #FamilyTime."

He made the announcement after Gladiators' win against Zalmi in Sharjah.

Kevin Pietersen and Rilee Rossouw, all-rounder Luke Wright and fast bowler Tymal Mills have confirmed they will not feature in the  final of the tournament.

All the players are associated with Quetta Gladiators.

Luke Wright‏ said he will not travel to Lahore due to security reasons.

"It's with a heavy heart I will not be coming to Lahore. I have a young family and for me a game of cricket is just not worth the risk 1/3," Wright tweeted.

He said: "I'm sorry as I know how much it means to you all and hopefully in the future the safety will not be in doubt to come play there. 2/3."

The cricketer posted: "Thanks once again to @TeamQuetta and @thePSLt20 for having me. Such lovely people. Great tournament with so much talent. See u soon 3/3."

South African Rilee Rossouw tweeted: "For those still unsure its with a sad heart that I must announce that i will not be taking part in the final."

Lahore will host the final of the tournament.
