Right-handed batsman believes team will get better after securing a win
Star batsman Faf du Plessis remains confident that Quetta Gladiators will bounceback after having a poor start in the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Sarfaraz Ahmed-led unit are currently the only team in the competition without a win after three matches played.
Despite such a horrendous, the former South Africa captain remains hopeful of the team’s chances in the competition.
“We’ve got a good team,” said Du Plessis in an interview to Geo News Sunday. “I’m sure that we’ll get a bit of momentum going and once we got that momentum, we will be a very, very tough team to beat. There are some quality players in this team and I’m sure will be turned around very quickly.
“Last night Zalmi had a really good finish. We didn’t bowl particularly well at the death. We can learn from that and get back stronger for the next one.”
The 36-year-old further heaped praise on the young talent playing in the PSL.
“Almost every team has two or three of those explosive batsmen,” he said. “And you also see fast-bowlers, 18,19,20,21-year-old guys that are bowling and bowling 140 plus in every team so it’s really looking good for Pakistan cricket.
