New Delhi: These days the excitement of Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023) is at its peak in Pakistan. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s team Quetta Gladiators are performing very poorly in the matches held so far in this league. So far, the bottom team has been able to win only 1 out of 5 matches. Meanwhile, a big statement of former captain Shahid Afridi has come to the fore.
must play as a player
Shahid said that instead of leading the team, Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfraz Ahmed should play as a member of the team so that he can perform well. The former skipper on a private TV channel blamed the Gladiators team management for their consecutive losses in PSL 2023. Afridi criticized his strategy. Responding to a question regarding Sarfaraz’s performance, Afridi cited the example of the Islamabad United franchise and said, “There should always be a player standing on the bench of the team who can fill the gap if there is a shortage of any player in the team.” “This strategy is nowhere to be seen in the game of Quetta Gladiators.”
Many changes made in the team
The former star cricketer also told that many changes have been made in the team. Citing another example of Karachi Kings, he said that the team is not performing exceptionally well. However, its captain Imad Wasim can be seen performing and leading his team. This is because the performance of the captain plays an important role in the performance of the team. He further said that Sarfaraz has played many matches for Pakistan and he has performed very well in those matches.
Advice was given to the owner of Quetta Gladiators
Afridi even said that before the start of the league, he had spoken to Nadeem Umar, the owner of Quetta Gladiators. He asked me for some advice. Even then I had said the same – don’t make Sarfaraz Ahmed the captain. Keep him as a member of the team so that he can perform well as a player. He further added that he can handle the pressure of his performance and enjoy his game.
