Where things went wrong for Quetta Gladiators?

Quetta Gladiators certainly have the choicest of the T20 skippers ever. Sarfaraz Ahmed is known for his leading qualities in the short-format of cricket. Not only known, but the captain has proved his worth on and off-field several times. A true dedicated might know Sarfaraz’s achievements that do not require a brief introduction here. The saluting leading and individual performances have always been his part but the two fragile years can probably not define what he is.

Nonetheless, it is not the first time the Quetta Gladiators have fitted flimsy under his captaincy as we have seen a comparable showcase as PSL 6 in PSL 5 too. Confronting in their sixth competition of the season sixth of Pakistan Super League (PSL 6), Gladiators, unfortunately, have chronicled their sixth coherent crackups. It must be like a bummer to the captain and the co succumbing all the encounters played yet of an edition except one versus Multan in Karachi leg. Eventually, the Purple Force now is one defeat away to equal Qalandar’s record of owning most downfalls in a particular PSL season.

Since 2018, Gladiators are more like the Qalandars of PSL 1, 2, 3, and 4 and as if Qalandars have adhered to Gladiators’ first four edition tactics. Sarfaraz and co underwent the sixth defeat of the PSL 6 tonight contesting against the Peshawar Zalmi that eventually has dragged them out of the tournament. Now, the vanquished team is left with oblivion plausibility of getting a ticket to the playoffs.

Undoubtedly, Sarfaraz is the hero of the T20 captaincy but what makes the PSL 2019 victors excessively overthrown?

What went wrong for the Gladiators?

The dangerous spin, experienced batsmen, mid-order delights – despite having an edge, the team appears deflated since the last season but ultimately the wretcheder in the continuing edition. The mentioned below reasons might be considerable.

Despite owning the experienced players in the team, the Sarfaraz’s army is highly composed of the inept lads at such a level. We can’t negate the fact that Gladiators owe a fraction of top-class bowlers but a team, especially in Abu Dhabi, cannot rely totally on spinners. Pakistan, known as the land of pacers, witness a huge list of its economical fast bowlers in Abu Dhabi’s playing conditions hence, the team should have consolidated equal pace as spin to balance the bowling attack.

Reviewing the game as they attained overlooking Zalmi, the Sarfaraz-led men were reckoned to chase first. Matters were fascinated for the Purple Force as they arose piercingly manifesting robust challenges to Zalmi batsmen.

Gladiators blossomed from hereabouts:

Nawaz’s spin deliveries dug out two early wickets to pressurize the opponent, but where did things go wrong? Might be on introducing the Afghani spinner named Zahir Khan went too costly for them and then giving critical overs to Zahid Mehmood who conceded 53 runs at an economy of 17.67.

But ceased split hither:

Despite a cool start, Sarfaraz was destined to be broken into pieces after his team conceded a target of 198 runs on 120 balls. Being under pressure already, they easily granted wickets and hence the match to Zalmi losing the rivalry with a huge margin consequently getting out of the season.

The mantras and support for Pakistan’s top-notched and loved leader are still alive as the devotees defend their feline commander. The cricketing fellowship puts its tenet into Sarfaraz and acmes at witnessing astonishing PSLs ahead.

The show is not ended yet!

The owner of the team, Omar Nadeem is keen on change in the coming years.

To all the supporters of the QG family, it’s not been our year. I take full responsibility for the team’s loss, we played poor cricket but promise you the next ten years we will dominate once again In Sha Allah please keep the faith, need your prayers and support.May Allah bless you all
