So, here is a look at five cricketers from defending champions Quetta Gladiators who need to deliver during PSL 5 so that the franchise is able to defend its title.
Sarfaraz Ahmed is one of the best skippers to have led at the T20 level. His mere presence in the Gladiators’ dressing room then is of invaluable worth. Nevertheless, the former Pakistani skipper needs to put up a decent show with both the gloves and the bat in order to regain confidence that he must be short of after being dropped from the national side.
Shane Watson has delivered a number of memorable knocks during PSL and hence, defending champions Quetta Gladiators will have very high hopes from him during PSL 5.
Jason Roy is an exciting T20 player and a few good innings from him up the order can actually seal the deal for Quetta Gladiators.
Naseem Shah might not play the entire tournament as he is still recovering from an injury. Nevertheless, the teenager would be hungry to deliver during the event in order to get into Pakistan’s T20 world cup squad. So, it is only natural that the Sarfaraz led franchise should have very high hopes from him.
Mohd. Nawaz hasn’t really been phenomenal at the international level but he has always performed in the tournament and thus, he is likely to be an integral part of the Gladaitors’ playing eleven in most games that they play.
