Will Smeed, a top batter for the Quetta Gladiators, has predicted that the Purple Force will win the Pakistan Super League’s eighth season (PSL).

Smeed was retained by the Gladiators in the Silver category during the player retention period in November 2022.

Smeed claimed that participating in the PSL last year was fantastic for his career in a video posted by the Gladiators on their official Twitter account.

“I am absolutely buzzing to be joining back up with Quetta Gladiators. I think playing in the PSL last year was amazing for my career, and I am buzzing to get there,” he said.

“I think we have assembled a very good team. I genuinely think we can go all the way this year. See you all soon, Purple Force,” he added.

It is important to note that Smeed stunned everyone by exhibiting his skill and strength in the opening game for the Gladiators during PSL 7.

In the debut game of the Gladiators versus Peshawar Zalmi on January 28 at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi, the 21-year-old was faultless. The youthful cannon hit 11 boundaries and four enormous sixes in his fast 62-ball 97.

Throughout the PSL 7, Smeed scored 240 runs in six games.

Martin Guptill, a great batter for New Zealand, had expressed his excitement about playing in front of Pakistan’s incredible crowd for the first time in his career.

“I cannot wait to experience the love and warmth of Pakistani fans in jam-packed stadiums,” Guptill said.

The destructive hitter and fellow countryman of Smeed, Jason Roy, also wished that this would be the Gladiators’ year.

“We have got a very good squad, coaches, and backroom staff. Let’s hope it’s our year, and we can get that trophy,” he said.
