Sarfaraz Ahmed To Make A Comeback? Quetta Gladiators Probable XI Vs Multan Sultans

Quetta Gladiators secured a remarkable last-ball win against Lahore Qalandars to jump back into PSL 2024 playoffs reckoning. The outcome marked their fifth win of the season, and first since their three-game winless run.

The Gladiators will now face table-toppers Multan Sultans in their final league game of the season on March 12. Currently placed at number four on the PSL 2024 points table, Rilee Rossouw and co. need to defeat Multan Sultans in order to guarantee themselves of a playoffs berth.

Ahead of the much-awaited contest, here is a look at the probable playing XI of the Quetta Gladiators franchise.

With Quetta Gladiators snapping their losing streak with a win against Lahore Qalandars, captain Rilee Rossouw will likely retain the same playing XI for the match against Multan Sultans. The South African cricketer might well give another opportunity to struggling Khawaja Nafay, even though the latter had managed to list only one half-century so far this tournament. However, there is an option of experienced Sarfaraz Ahmed who has been dropped due to his poor form and would be itching to prove a point if he gets an opportunity.

Jason Roy and Saud Shakeel will continue to open the innings, while captain Rossouw, Khawaja Nafay, wicketkeeper Laurie Evans and Omair Yousuf will helm the middle-order. Bowling all-rounders Mohammad Wasim Jr and Akeal Hosein can slog a few in the death overs, as evidenced from their recent batting exploits this PSL 2024 season.

Fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Sohail Khan will share the new-ball, while Abrar Ahmed will lead the team’s spin attack.
