Quetta Gladiators’ captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, is brimming with confidence as the Pakistan Super League (PSL 9) approaches, particularly with the addition of Mohammad Amir to their squad. The anticipation mounts as the league is set to kick off on February 17, with teams gearing up for fierce competition.
Having clinched the title in 2019, Quetta is determined to secure their second PSL championship and has bolstered their roster with notable signings such as Wanindu Hasaranga, Abrar Ahmed, and Mohammad Wasim Jr. Sarfaraz sees great potential in Amir, citing his impressive track record with Karachi Kings as evidence of his ability to make a significant impact on Quetta’s fortunes.
The skipper highlights the bowling prowess of Amir and Sohail Khan, noting their proficiency with both new and old balls, which he believes will be instrumental in the team’s success. Moreover, Sarfaraz emphasizes the importance of overseas players arriving well in advance of matches to facilitate team cohesion, expressing trust in the PSL management’s organizational capabilities.
“In the last two years, wherever Amir has played cricket, his team has been performing well,”
“Amir and Sohail Khan are experts in both bowling new and old balls. We are hopeful that Amir will prove to be profitable for Quetta Gladiators,”
In other cricketing news, Sarfaraz extends congratulations to the newly-elected PCB chairman, Mohsin Naqvi, commending his previous tenure as the caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab and expressing optimism about his potential positive influence on Pakistan cricket.
“I want to congratulate Mohsin Naqvi on becoming the chairman of PCB. He has done a great job as a caretaker CM in Punjab over the last 1.5 years. I’m hopeful that he will do great services for Pakistan cricket,”
Furthermore, Sarfaraz lauds the performance of the Pakistan U19 team in the World Cup, despite their narrow defeat to Australia in the semi-finals. He attributes the team’s resilience and determination to the unpredictable nature of cricket, emphasizing the valuable lessons learned from each match.
“They [U19 players] played fantastically throughout the tournament. Losing the semi-final against Australia because of an inside-edge four is part of the game,”
As the PSL draws near, anticipation builds for what promises to be an exhilarating season of cricketing action.
