Former Captain of Pakistan Cricket Team, World-renowned All-rounder & Player of Quetta Gladiators Shahid Khan Afridi suggested Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to either postpone the PSL tournament or include additional Players to Team Squads in order to run the Biggest Cricket Festival of Pakistan smoothly. This statement of Afridi came after the conspicuous increase in COVID-19 & OmiCron Cases Ratio in Karachi, one of the venues for Pakistan Super League. Shahid Afridi assumed that Pakistan Cricket Board & Pakistan Super League Management would reduce the allowed strength of Spectators inside the Stadium amid a rise in Daily Covid-19 cases in Sindh’s Capital and Largest Metropolitan City of Pakistan, Karachi. Earlier, Shahid Khan Afridi was picked by Team Quetta Gladiators for PSL 7, and according to Hard Hitter Afridi, this PSL Season will be his Last Tournament.
Afridi admired the Captaincy Style of WicketKeeper Batter Sarfraz Ahmed during the Sponsorship Ceremony, which was held at Quetta Gladiators Office in Karachi. He said he would let Sarfraz do his Captaincy in his style. According to Afridi, Sarfraz Ahmed is his Favorite Captain. Sarfraz warmly welcomed the former Captain in Quetta Gladiators Squad and he wished to see Afridi performing in Gladiator’s Squad. In Response to Shahid Khan Afridi, Skipper of Quetta Gladiators, Sarfraz Ahmed, hoped to win this PSL Tournament with Shahid Khan Afridi and said that we would not let Afridi go after winning the tournament. Sarfraz Ahmed will lead the Quetta Gladiators Squad for the 6th time consecutively, which is Pakistan Super League’s unique record. Under his Captaincy, Quetta won the PSL title once and was a Runner Up in PSL 2017. Quetta Gladiators Management is hopeful of winning the second PSL title under the capacity of Sarfraz Ahmed.
