Quetta Gladiators are one of the best teams of the Pakistan Super League since the beginning. They had been quite unlucky since the inaugural PSL edition as they had 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. They eventually won the PSL 4 but their performance was lackluster in the PSL 5. So, we expected some good amount of shuffling in the PSL 2021 Quetta Gladiators Squad and that’s exactly what happened at the PSL 6 draft. Here we have everything you need to know about their picks for the next season.
Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Hasnain, Naseem Shah, Anwar Ali, Azam Khan, Ben Cutting, Zahid Mahmood, Chris Gayle, Tom Banton, Usman Shinwari, Abdul Nasir, Cameron Delport, Qais Ahmed, Saim Ayub, Arish Ali Khan, Dale Steyn, Usman Khan

PSL 2021 Quetta Gladiators Squad
Update: Final Squad updated above
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 6. 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 2021 draft is scheduled in January 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 2020 Quetta Gladiators Squad
As mentioned earlier, Sarfraz Ahmed led the side in the last season as well but couldn’t live up to the expectations of the management. Still, we can expect him to stay as the Gladiators’ management is comfortable with him and he has been delivering results since the beginning 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 2021 as well. They had also picked Umar Akmal last time around who did play some impressive knock and proved his worth to the side but he seems to be out of plans for now.
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 6 draft 2021.
With all the major picks outlined for PSL 2021 Quetta Gladiators Squad, we can expect them to go rocking into the PSL 6 too. The final squad will be updated here as soon as the team is announced after the PSL 2021 draft. Just stay tuned and keep following us!
