Sarfaraz Ahmed Aspires Gladiators To Score Big Against United

Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed says that we will be playing every match like the final, because QuettaGladiators will all take on two-time Islamabad United in the 18th game of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.

“We’re back on the table already and can’t afford any more losses. We need to win each match from here if we want to reach the knockout stage, so it is all in Abu Dhabi. In every department of the game, we have to put ourselves in the best position to be in the competition,” said Sarfaraz in an online press.

In this match, Islamabad United aims to restore itself to Gladiators in the 18th game of the remaining PSL 2021, after suffering the retrogress against Lahore Qalandars.

“Yes, we had an appalling run in Karachi, especially in our fielding, when our game plan went Haywire. That’s certainly one area we worked hard on,” he added.

Wicketkeeper-batsman said everybody knows his or her role and will not repeat his or her past mistakes.

“Every member of the team is able to offer its capabilities and to make the most of them. We want the men of our bats to stay in the wicket, and make sure that in the later part of the 20 over there are sufficient wickets to kill them. And we should use our bowling skills to restrict our adversaries,” he maintained.
