Quetta Gladiators’ skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed is optimistic about his team’s chances ahead of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six.

While talking to Cricket Pakistan in an exclusive interview, Sarfaraz also hoped that hard-hitting opener Chris Gayle will win the PSL with the Gladiators.

“Chris Gayle was unable to perform according to expectations during his previous stints in PSL but hopefully this time he will have the best PSL of his career and win the title for us,” said Sarfaraz.

“We will try to ensure that we don’t repeat the mistakes we made last year and put up a good show during the tournament,” he added.

He also praised Azam Khan, son of head coach Moin Khan, for impressing one and all with his performances in the recent past.

“Azam Khan has worked really hard and the improvement he has shown is commendable. In times to comes, he will perform will for the national side as well,” he said. “Moin [Khan] bhai’s name is always associated with him but he tries to ignore it and only focus on his game.”
