Pakistan Super League (PSL) former champion franchise Quetta Gladiators’ skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said the team’s achievement is more important to him than any individual glory in the PSL sixth edition.
Sarfaraz while talking to the media he said,
“Quetta’s team will be looking to kick off its PSL campaign with a win against Karachi Kings in the opening game of the league on February 20 in Karachi.”
“National Stadium may be the home ground of Karachi Kings but we have also played in Karachi and have players who have experience of playing there,
“People say Gladiators are actual representatives of Karachi. This is maybe because we have more players from Karachi. Nevertheless, the city’s name is with Kings so there will be support for them as well.”
Knowing the importance of a good start in the tournament with early breakthrough wins always gives the team good momentum and a plentiful opportunity to reach the play-offs.
Sarfaraz further added to his statement that,
“We will enter the 6th edition of PSL with full preparation. We are eager to do well and reclaim our glory in the league. I am focused on making the team win again,”
“For me, team’s success matters more than any individual glory. Of course, personal scores are important but it should be for the team’s cause and I will try to give my best to make my team – Quetta Gladiators – win the tournament,”
“My own batting position depends on the team’s combination and requirements according to the situation,” he added.
