The team Quetta Gladiators was the most consistent team in PSL in starting four seasons when most of it was played in the UAE and they were crowned Champions in 2019 under Sarfaraz Ahmed’s leadership. However, once the PSL moved to Pakistan they started getting exposed and their spin strategy which provided great rewards to them in four seasons backfired since then they have not been able to reach the playoffs stage for three consistent seasons. The fanbase of Quetta is very eager to find out more details about Quetta Gladiators squad 2024 & Quetta Gladiators schedule 2024 for the ninth edition of the Pakistan Super League. Team Quetta is owned by Karachi-based company Omar Associates which is why they get some very nice home-like support whenever they play in Karachi and their captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is also from Karachi.
Quetta Gladiators PSL 2024 Squad
The Quetta Gladiators PSL 2024 squad boasts a formidable lineup of players, showcasing a blend of experience and promising talent. The team includes key batters such as Rilee Rossouw, Jason Roy, and Sarfaraz Ahmed, providing a strong foundation for their batting department.
In the bowling department, the team will rely on the expertise of Mohammad Hasnain, and Mohammad Amir, and spin resources like Wanindu Hasaranga and Usman Qadir. Additionally, all-rounders like Mohammad Wasim Jnr and Sherfane Rutherford bring versatility to the squad, contributing both with the bat and the ball.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, known for his leadership skills and strategic acumen, will lead the Quetta Gladiators as the captain. His experience and understanding of the game will play a pivotal role in guiding the team through the challenges of the tournament. Under his captaincy, the squad can leverage its strengths and work on overcoming any weaknesses to strive for success in the PSL 2024.
Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Jason Roy, Wanindu Hasaranga (partially available), Bismillah Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Abrar Ahmed and Mohammad Hasnain, Will Smeed, Sherfane Rutherford, Mohammad Amir, Saud Shakeel, Sajjad Ali Jnr, Usman Qadir, Omair Bin Yousuf, Adil Naz, Khawaja Mohammad Nafay, Akeal Hosein, Sohail Khan, Laurie Evans
With all the trades Quetta did this as well along with drafted players, it is very clear they wanted to strengthen their bowling resources and this year they do seem like a team that can trouble the majority of the batters and restrict opponent teams at chaseable scores.

Quetta Gladiators Retentions PSL 2024
The management of Quetta has not changed from the initial season of the Pakistan Super League in 2016 and they always preferred to keep playing the same players every year even though the last three years have been very difficult for them with poor performances. But this year, they have made quite a lot of moves interms of player trades plus Shane Watson has joined them as head coach. Nadeem Omar is also a very die-hard fan of cricket and has very good intensive knowledge about cricket will be directly involved in the PSL draft 2024 to select the best possible team for Quetta Gladiators PSL 9. They have already announced their eight retentions for PSL 2024 which are as follows.
- Rilee Rossouw (✈️) (Platinium)
- Mohammad Wasim Jnr (Diamond)
- Jason Roy (✈️) (Diamond)
- Wanindu Hasaranga (✈️) (Diamond)
- Sarfaraz Ahmed (Gold & (Brand Ambassador)
- Abrar Ahmed (Gold)
- Mohammad Hasnain (Gold)
- Will Smeed (✈️) (Silver)
The decision for Quetta Gladiators captain 2024 is highly likely to again go in favor of Sarfaraz Ahmed as the team owner Nadeem Omar is very fond of Sarfaraz’s leadership qualities. According to the team director now Moeen Khan, Naseem Shah had informed the franchise that he wanted to move on hence they had to release him but they got a great trade deal for him by getting Abrar and Wasim Jnr in their lineup from Islamabad United.
Quetta Gladiators 2024 list will feature some great foreign players like Wanindu Hasaranga who has informed the franchise that he is available to play only 5 matches and can provide them the crucial wickets they lack in the middle overs.
Will Smeed in a Silver category retention is an excellent bargain as he played some very wonderful knocks last year for Quetta which means Jason and Will be doing the opening this year for Quetta.
