It’s time for the Quetta Gladiators’ fans to rejoice as the great Sir Vivian Richards has returned to the team dug-out. The murmurs about his return were there but he was missing from the Quetta camp for the first two matches.

But the West Indian cricket legend has finally arrived in the country as was announced by the team official media handles.

The cricket giant joined the purple force in the first season of the league and stayed with them till season 5. In the next season that took place amid the pandemic with no proper SOPs structured compared to this time, the mentor had to miss the tournament.

The team management had announced his decision stating, “Quetta Gladiators mentor Sir Vivian Richards will not be part of the Gladiators squad in this PSL after he decided to stay home given the serious Covid situation all around the world,”

He had expressed his sadness over not being part of the franchise. In a video message he had said, “I’m extremely sorry, I won’t be with you this year but as we all know what exactly is going around the world, COVID-19 has created havoc in every country,”

Sir Vivian Richard is known to be one of the most energetic and excited person in the dugout. In his presence, Quetta Gladiators have done wonders including winning their maiden PSL title.

Fans sorely missed the legend last season when team Quetta had the worst campaign winning only two tournament matches. He was also missing from the rescheduled matches in season 5 in which Quetta failed to qualify for the play-offs.

Nonetheless, the great cricketer has returned and things have levelled up for the Quetta Gladiators.
