Quetta Gladiators, one of the prominent franchises in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), is contemplating a change in leadership after eight years under Sarfaraz Ahmed’s captaincy.
Reports suggest that the team management is considering Rilee Rossouw and Saud Shakeel as potential candidates to take over the captaincy from Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Having led Quetta Gladiators for nearly a decade, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s captaincy tenure has been remarkable. However, with the team's performance dynamics shifting, the management is exploring new leadership options to revitalize the squad.
Shane Watson, the head coach of Quetta Gladiators, is actively involved in the decision-making process regarding the new captaincy. While Rilee Rossouw and Saud Shakeel emerge as frontrunners for the position, the final decision rests with the team's coaching staff and management.
Interestingly, the management has also provided the option to retain Sarfaraz Ahmed as the captain while appointing Saud Shakeel as the vice-captain. This strategic move indicates the team's willingness to explore various leadership combinations to optimize performance and adapt to evolving challenges in the upcoming PSL season.
