Quetta Gladiators owner Nadeem Omar has said that they may consider to replace Sarfaraz Ahmed as a captain of the team after the dismal performance of the purple side in last two editions. Nadeem Omar also said that veteran Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi could replace Sarfaraz in the leadership role.
Shahid Afridi expressed his desire to play for Quetta Gladiators in PSL 7 which means his three years stay with the current champions Multan Sultans will end. Afridi has represented three franchises of Pakistan Super League in six years. He played for Peshawar Zalmi in the first two editions and then moved to Karachi Kings in the 3rd edition.
Shahid Afridi was also part of Quetta Gladiators sister franchise Galle Gladiators in Lanka Premiere League. Nadeem Omar said that he will welcome Afridi and it will be an honour for his franchise if Shahid Afridi joins. Omar further added that he does not want Sarfaraz to be replaced as a captain of Quetta Gladiators but if he decides to call it a day than they will appoint Afridi as the new captain.
Sarfaraz Ahmed is leading Quetta Gladiators since the inaugural edition of PSL and he has been the most successful captains in the history of the league. Under his captaincy, Quetta played three PSL finals out of six and they won the 4th edition of PSL as well.
