Having won the 4th edition of the tournament, the defending champions, Quetta Gladiators, will be looking to continue their golden run in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) this year as well. For your convenience, we have compiled Quetta Gladiators’ complete schedule and squad for the 5th edition of PSL.
Although they have suffered a blow in the form of Umar Akmal’s ban due to breach of PCB’s anti-corruption code of conduct, Gladiators still have one of the strongest teams.
