Quetta Gladiators’ Head Coach Moin Khan has opened up after his side got knocked out of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six on Wednesday.

Quetta needed to win their match against Multan to stay alive in the tournament but they were unable to avoid a crushing 110-run defeat at the hands of the Sultans.

Chasing a target of 184 runs, Quetta were dismissed for only 73 runs which meant that they have now lost seven out of their nine games in the event and are placed at the bottom of the table.   

“Firstly, I think we played very badly and secondly we were unable to form a proper team combination. Chris Gayle played a couple matches [before leaving]. Qais [Ahmad] won a game for us and gave us momentum but then the league stopped,” said Moin. “After the league resumed, two of our top players, Andre Russell and Faf du Plessis, got injured in the first two games. Other foreign players were also out of form, expect for Jake [Weatherald] who impressed me.”

“If one or two players don’t perform consistently in the team, it is very difficult to win. There was also lack of confidence in our players and some youngsters didn’t show game awareness,” he added.

Despite getting knocked out of the event, Moin is keen on winning the final match against Karachi Kings on Saturday.

“We will give the youngsters a chance in the final game and hopefully end the tournament on a positive note,” he concluded.
