Quetta Gladiators are the reigning champions of the Pakistan Super League as they head into the PSL 5. They had been quite unlucky since the inaugural PSL edition as they have come close to success on many occasions but unfortunately couldn’t taste it. Now, whether it is about luck or the lack in their squad picks, they have somehow been kept off the throne by the competing sides. Now with them already being the defending champions, we expect very few changes in the PSL 2020 Quetta Gladiators Squad. Here we have everything you need to know about their picks for the next season.
Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shane Watson, Ahmed Shezad, Umar Akmal, Mohammad Husnain, Naeem Shah, Ahsan Ali, Jason Roy, Ben Cutting, Fawad Ahmed, Sohail Khan, Tymal Mills, Abdul Nasir, Aarish Khan, Azam Khan, Keemu Paul, Khurram Manzoor.

PSL 2020 Quetta Gladiators Squad
Sarfraz Ahmed has been leading the side since day one and they’d likely be going to stick with him getting into the upcoming PSL 5. But what about the other picks for the season? Even though we don’t have any official news yet, but nothing has been confirmed as of now. The PSL 2020 draft is scheduled in November and we’d only be able to say anything conclusive by then as far as the team squads are concerned.
As of now, we can only make a few assumptions from the Quetta Gladiators Squad picks from the last season. Let’s have a look at them.
PSL 2019 Quetta Gladiators Squad
As mentioned earlier, Sarfraz Ahmed led the side in the last season as well and eventually managed to lift the title after being knocked out in first three seasons of the tournament. So, we can expect him to stay as the Gladiators’ management is comfortable with him and he has been delivering results too. He was the platinum pick for last season along with Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, and Max Waller. The West Indians might as well stay with the team moving into the next season.
Shane Watson, Sohail Tanvir, and Mohammad Nawaz have all been with the side lately and they’d be expected to make their way into the Quetta Gladiators Squad PSL 2020 as well. They had also picked Umar Akmal last time around who did play some impressive knock and proved his worth to the side and we can expect them to retain him moving forward as well.
Some other foreign picks for the Gladiators included Rilee Rossouw and Fawad Ahmed. Ahsan Ali also came up as an impressive addition into the top order and he was one of the emerging picks for the season along with Mohammad Hasnain who managed to make it to the Pakistan national side as well after the tournament. So, with so many success stories, we can only expect a few changes coming up for the Gladiators during the PSL 5 draft 2020.
